Designer's Tip: I used the Ultra Smooth White Cardstock to stamp images and color with Spectrum pens. The bright color and smooth surface really makes a difference in finished product.
When using Spectrum Noir pens, first outline image with darkest shade of orange and then color in with lighter shade, blending 2 colors.
- Place the card fold at the top. Glue 6 1/2”x2” striped paper across the card and 3/4” from the top. Cover the top and bottom of the card with brown floral paper. Place a straight and rick rack Thin Line Dazzlesä over paper seams. Use the Victorian punch along the bottom edge of the card front only. Use the cosmetic sponge to apply brown ink to the punched edge.
- Emboss 2 pumpkins on each side of a 4 7/8”x2 1/2” Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. Stamp and emboss a 3rd pumpkin on separate piece of cardstock. Outline pumpkin leaves with JG2 and color inside with GT2. Outline Pumpkin with OR3 and color in with OR2. Add dots of both GT2 and OR2 on maple leaves and color majority of leaves with GB7. Cut out the single pumpkin and foam tape between the other pumpkins. Ink the white cardstock edges brown and mat with teal and brown cardstocks, leaving 1/8” borders. Glue to the card center.
- Computer journal “Autumn Blessings” on white cardstock and trace with the Bracket Label B template image. Cut out and mat with brown cardstock, leaving a 1/16” border.
- Inside: Glue a 6 1/2” x 3/4” piece of teal cardstock across the bottom of the card inside back. Place a rick rack Lines Dazzlesä across the top. Glue a 6 1/2” x 3/4” brown floral strip across the card, 1 1/2” from the top. Trace the Bracket Label D onto striped paper, mat with brown cardstock, leaving a 1/32” edge and glue to the center of the floral border. Computer journal “Happy Thanksgiving” and trace with Bracket Label A. Mat with teal cardstock, leaving a 1/16” border and foam tape over the striped label.
