Good Friday morning. Today I’m sharing a fall pumpkin patch card made using the newly released Rubbernecker Stamps Pumpkins and Ivy paired with the Picket Fence, Deckle Hills, Grass #2, Birds and framed using the Nesting Deckle Rectangles and Fall Leaf Background. I created the fall leaf background for the Autumn Leaves Background Card that I posted yesterday. I had created the background using the largest rectangle layer for the background and then used the next size die in the set to cut it smaller. I was left with this thin frame layer and thought it was perfect to add a touch of color to frame this project.
The Frame, Grass and Fence
- Cut the frame layers using the Nested Deckle Rectangles.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the colorful leaf background frame and attach it to the white frame.
- Cut two grass layers using green cardstock.
- Apply double stick tape to the back lower portion of the frame and attach one grass layer.
- Cut two fence sections using woodgrain cardstock.
- To create a taller fence layer one fence section over to the top of the second fence and attach together using double stick tape.
- Cut a 1/4″ strip of woodgrain cardstock and attach over top of the fence cross ways using double stick tape.
- Apply Antique Linen ink to the fence using the direct to paper technique with the ink pad.
- Cut the fence in half and attach each section to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of the fence and frame and attach the second grass layer.
- Cut thin strips of mounting tape and apply all the way around the back of the frame and to the center fence sections and attach it to the white card base.
The Pumpkins, Foliage and Birds
- Cut several pumpkins using yellow cardstock and color the stems using a brown marker.
- Use mini applicators to apply Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge ink to the pumpkins.
- Apply shimmer to the pumpkins using Tonic Nuvo Shimmer pen.
- Gently round the pumpkins with your fingers, apply strips of mounting tape to the back and tuck them in behind the grass layers.
- Cut the grass and pumpkin foliage using green cardstock.
- Tuck the grass and foliage behind the grass layers and around the fence sections and attach using glossy accents.
- Finish the scene by using black cardstock to cut the birds to use as crows in the scene and attach to the card baser using small pieces of mounting tape.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my fall pumpkin patch card. I originally was going to use a different color for the birds but thought the black crows coordinated well with the black leaf markings on the frame. Have you gotten in the mood to make fall cards? I always enjoy working with the rich colors and especially love making pumpkin projects. Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great weekend.
