Pumpkin time, pumpkin time, I love pumpkin time! I love to look at pumpkins. I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin cake. And don’t ever forget pumpkin pie! Give me a pumpkin spice latte and I’m good to go. I love smelling pumpkin spice candles. I delight in pumpkin and autumn decorations. Pumpkins made into happy jack-o-lanterns make me happy. So there’s not many things more enjoyable than making a pumpkin card.
One thing I like about this 4.5 inch square card is that it is an all-occasion card. It can be used to write a note, send a get well wish, encourage someone or given as a birthday card to someone who was born in the autumn.
The rich Lawn Fawn paper in the background is so attractive. I embossed the pumpkin first and heated the gold powder with a heat gun. Then I colored the pumpkin and leaves with distress inks using a finger dauber. Trying to brighten things up, I also used distress oxide inks. The use of both kinds of ink gave the pumpkin a velvety look. The background behind the pumpkin was water colored using the distress ink, Broken China. To handle the water I used watercolor paper.
A simple card to make, yet such beautiful results. Be inspired to make a pumpkin card with the rich fall colors of the season.
