Check out one of my handmade Fall card ideas combining classic pumpkins with Autumn flowers!
I just love all the colors and smells and golden prettiness of this season and so I cannot STOP bringing all my handmade Fall card ideas to life! For this one I wanted to combine some classic, fat pumpkins with a some pretty flowers in the same tones. When I put it all against that graphic white textured background it all just came together!
So you can make your own version of this card, I am sharing all my details so you can either follow along and make the same one or put your own twists on the basic design and really make it your own. Let’s dive in! I used the Rubbernecker Organic #1 Cover, Cheery Blossoms, Branch, Pumpkins and Ivy, Picket Fence, Grass, Grass #2 and Small Butterflies.
Card Base and Die Cut Cover For the Texture
- Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and the Organic #1 Cover.
- Turn the cover face down and attach a doubles tick sheet. Pro Tip: I removed the cover very carefully from the die so I could keep them in place. I like the added dimensional element to highlight my scene.
- Remove the backing sheet from the cover and attach it to the card base.
Fence and Grass Details
- Use woodgrain cardstock to cut two sections of fence, apply Pecan ink to both sections using a wet baby wipe. and heat dry with the heat gun.
- Attach the two fence sections together using glossy accents and trim to fit the card front.
- Apply double stick tape to the back bottom of the fence and a few tiny pop dots to the back of a few key pickets and attach it to the card base.
- Use green cardstock to cut two sections of both of the grass sets.
- Trim the large grass sections to fit the front of the card base.
- Attach one grass section the fence section using double stick tape.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the second grass section and attach it to the card base.
- Set the grass sprigs aside to apply around the pumpkins.
Branch and Flowers
- Cut the branch sections and flower centers using green cardstock and the flowers using yellow cardstock.
- Attach branch sections together using glossy accents to create a fuller branch for the flowers.
- Apply Pumpkin and light touches of Pecan ink to the flowers using mini applicators.
- Place the flowers face down on the molding pad, push down on each petal using a small round stylus .
- Turn the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using a small tipped stylus.
- Use glossy accents to attach the flowers to the branches.
- Attach the green flower centers to the flowers using glossy accents. Pro Tip: It is much easier to attach the flower centers when the flowers are attached. Using tweezers makes an easy task of working with tiny pieces.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the branch and tiny pop dots to the back of the flowers.
- Tuck the branch in behind the fence and attach it to the card base.
- Finish by adding a touch of sparkle to the flower centers using twinkle stickles.
Pumpkins and Butterflies
- Use yellow cardstock to cut the pumpkins and butterflies.
- Apply Citrus ink to the pumpkins and butterflies using a mini applicator. Pro Tip: Applying a light shade of ink to the cardstock creates the perfect amount of moisture base that makes it easier to darker shading.
- Apply depth of color to the pumpkins using Pumpkin and Pecan inks and mini applicators.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the pumpkins, tuck them in behind the grass and attach to the scene.
- Tuck pieces of the grass sprigs around the pumpkins and attach using glossy accents.
- Apply touches of the stickles to the pumpkins for a touch of sparkle. Pro Tip: The stickles on the pumpkins was an afterthought so I used an old brush to apply the touches of stickles. I wanted the pumpkin sparkle to balance with the sparkle of the flowers.
I’ve been on a roll with all these handmade Fall card ideas and I just love the idea of all the fabulous goodies from the Rubbernecker store that let me really add so many seasonal details with not a lot of work. I just get to “dress up” the die cuts with ink and shaping and build these little scenes that bring me right to that fresh, golden air of Fall!
