I’m a Summer girl at heart but cannot deny that I love the beauty of Autumn, and all the glorious rich colors it has to offer.
Today I’m sharing this pretty box card (Crate Pumpkins) that I found in the Silhouette store (ID #332264).
I used several colors of Card Stock from the CutCardStock Store: Discount Card Stock Canvas Textured Ginger Snap, Discount Card Stock Vanilla Bean, Pop Tone Sweet Tooth, Classic Crest Baronial Ivory, Pop Tone Gum Drop Green, Basis Green, Basis Olive, Pop Tone Orange Fizz, Discount Card Stock Orange Zest, Basis Burgandy, and Pop Tone Lemon Drop.
Using your electronic cutting machine begin by cutting all designs in the desired colors:
I decided to add some rough distressing/detail work to most pieces.
I used some brown watercolor paints to add some rough “board” distressing. It’s messy looking, but gives off an aged look. I added “nails” by using a copper marker.
I used some mixed media for the pumpkins and sunflower. I first added some definition to the pumpkins using a marker and then used some gel crayons to add some distressing:
I then used some Vanilla Bean Card Stock to create pumpkin stems for all the pumpkins. I simply traced on the backside and then cut with a scissor.
I then adhered all the pumpkins/flowers to the base pieces and assembled the main base of the card. I added some detail to the greenery by using a marker.
Finally, finish off with last two flowers. I added a bit of white paint splatter to the last two flowers, That’s it!
I do hope you are inspired to start working on your Autumn projects! See you soon and in the neamtime don’t forget to stock up on all your Card Stock essentials by checking out the CutCardStock store!
