Hi, friends!  Today is my last post for the CutCardStock online store, and I just want to start out by saying THANK YOU to Amber and Cindy for everything!  I’ve enjoyed working with these beautiful papers and quality products–thank you for the opportunity! 🙂  Today, I’m getting us in the mood for a fall day with an autumnal card.  Let’s get to it!

I started by using the Classic Crest Solar White cardstock to create a faux patina panel.  Click HERE for a video tutorial on how to create this fun effect.  I layered the panel onto some Curious Metallic Cognac paper.  GORGEOUS!

Next, I turned to making the punched pumpkin.  I started by punching three large ovals out of some beautiful Curious Metallic Mandarin paper.  The subtle shine is fabulous!

After punching my ovals, I used some dark brown ink to sponge around the edge of each oval.  This will give the effect of shadowing when you put the pumpkin together.

I layered two ovals behind the third to create a pumpkin shape.  I then punched a small banner out of the Curious Metallic Cognac paper to use as a stem.  CUTE!

I then layered all the elements onto a card base made with Muscletone Kraft 140LB cardstock.  This cardstock is SO thick–I LOVE it!  I think the finished product is just so pretty, and I hope you do, too!  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I invite you to visit the CutCardStock online store to purchase the beautiful papers I used to make this card.  One last THANK YOU to Amber and Cindy, as well!  HUGS and happy paper crafting to you all! 🙂
