Hi! I just wanted to let you know that you are a Blessing to me! I thank you so much for supporting my Stampin’ Up! business – whether it is by leaving a comment, a like, reading my post, my newsletter, or making a purchase. I hope I have inspired you along the way.
I created this card using the Rustic Harvest Suite in the July-December Mini Catalog. The only stamping is the sentiment. That is stamped in Jet Black StaZon ink on a scrap of Basic White and punched with the Double Oval punch. That is attached to the larger oval from that punch on a piece of Mossy Meadow scrap.
I love the look of the pumpkin – there are slight impressions in the die – which can be seen better in this picture:
I love the texture that adds to the card.
To make it easier to attach the curly vines, apply a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Mossy Meadow scrap before die-cutting. This way, the adhesive is already on the vine and you can just peel it off and attach.
Here are the dimensions:
- Base – Mossy Meadow – 4 ¼” x 11”, score and fold at 5 ½”.
- Basic White – 4” x 5 ¼” – 2 pieces
- Designer Series Paper – 3 ¾”” x 6 ½”, score at 5” and fold up
- Basic White scrap for sentiment
- Cajun Craze scrap for pumpkin die cuts
- Mossy Meadow – scrap for vine and stem die cuts and oval punch
Yes, the Black and White piece is the backside of the Designer Series Paper – allowing you to score and fold up to see both sides. Conversely, if you’d rather not use that much DSP, you can cut two separate pieces – the first measuring 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″, the second measuring 3 3/4″ x 1 1/2″. This should allow a 1/4″ overlap of the two pieces which is covered by the ribbon.
The second piece of Basic White is used for the inside of the card – as this is a dark color base, it is good to use a piece of Basic White on which to write your message.
