World Card Making Day!!! - Autumn Harvest

Today is World Card Making Day so I had to make a card!  With the fall, the Autumn Harvest stamp set is my favorite to use and is featured here today!

I love the "orange" of fall leaves and just the rusty color of autumn.  One of Stampin' Up!'s new In Colors is Cajun Craze and it is perfect for this time of year!

  • The card is created using a standard size and the front of the card is embossed using the new Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder.
  • Next, the Watercolor Paper was trimmed 1 inch on each side, then matted with Early Espresso cardstock.
  • Masking was used.  First I stamped the small pumkin on the Watercolor paper in Early Espresso.  Then stamped one on scrap paper and cut it out.  Then placed it over the previously stamped image.  Then inked and stamped the larger pumpkin in Early Espresso. The result is a pair of pumkins, one appearing to be in front of the other.
  • Next I stamped the greeting in Cajun Craze.
  • Then I colored the pumpkins using Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie, and a Blender Pen.
  • The leaves were stamped, colored and cut out on Watercolor paper as well - colored with the same colors, but with the addition of Old Olive.
  • They were adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere the pumpkin panel to the card front using SNAIL Adhesive.
  • You're done!

Lovely card especially frame around it. I think the test color is very poor.:)
