Project Information

Hey everyone! We are totally getting ready for fall even though it's been hotter this month then it has all summer! We don't mind the heat because when those fall winds start to make their way in, it will be a relief!

We hope this card inspires you and gets you thinking about the end of the summer as well as the start of fall! The picture above features a pumpkin and a crook-neck squash from our very own garden! Hopefully Sally gets her trick or treating in this year! Lets hope she doesn't hang out with that blockhead again!

We're pretty sure you'll find that this is a great card to make for any fall occasion:

  • Invitation to a local pumpkin patch!
  • A fall themed lunch with the girls!
  • A fall themed tea party!
  • Thanksgiving invitations!
  • Halloween Party Invitations!
  • All occasion fall themed Thank You card!
  • And so much more.....

Paper Suggestions

  • AC Cardstock
  • The patterned cardstock paper we used for the envelope and card base is from Indian Summer Fall Stack by DCWV (Envelope Not Pictured).

Design Tips

  • The buttons are pretty tiny in this project - tinier than they were designed to cut at, really.  But it's okay - you'll just need to poke the holes in the buttons with a pin to define them more.
  • Ink the edges of the card and the pumpkins with a dark brown ink pad.  This adds a nice subtle yet super cool feel.
  • If you have a light colored pen that will show up on dark colored paper, such as the White Souffle Pen by Sakura, draw stitches around the top of the oval.  That's what we did on ours with our Souffle Pen that we got at Archivers.
  • Use 3D dots (pop dots, glue dots or better yet, 3D Zots) underneath each pumpkin so they stand out.  Looks great!
