White Pumpkin Card

Call them Baby Boo, Luminas, Casper, or Cotton Candy seems the white pumpkins are here to stay. Used to be they were very expensive and hard to find but this year they seem to be plentiful both at the pumpkin patch and the farmer's markets --- great for Fall decorating as well.

Wanted to make another pumpkin card using the dies from Paper Trey Ink from their Shape Up Series Pumpkin dies --- this is the first pumpkin I had made using their Pumpkin dies:

But this time I wanted to make a white pumpkin and here it is:

For this pumpkin I used the 110# weight cream card stock from Mikes for the card base. Also used this card stock to cut out all the pumpkin sections. Once the sections were cut out I used seven different embossing folders and embossed the pieces using the Cuttlebug. Once all the pieces were cut and embossed I sponged the edges of each piece. Once I had those all done I used the solid metal pumpkin die piece and cut out a pumpkin, again from the cream card stock, and that is the piece I put all my sections on. Since I had embossed the sections I used a glue pen to put these pieces on my pumpkin shaped base. Once all the pieces were glued on I then used the ATG and put this onto the pumpkin shaped card stock base.

Used the stem from the pumpkin die set from Paper Trey Ink and cut out a stem using Mikes kraft card stock. Put the stem on the card front using a glue dot. Cut out two leaves from the pumpkin die set from Elizabeth Craft. Put the leaves on the pumpkin card front by the stem using glue dots. Made a bow using cream satin ribbon. Trimmed it to the size I wanted and put it over the leaves. Added a pearl to the center of the bow.

For the "Thankful" I used the Words of Gratitude from Penny Black and cut out two of the Thankful word. Used a glue pen to put the two words together -- the Mikes kraft stock is not very thick and the two layers worked better on all the layers of this card. Again I used the glue pen and put the word across the pumpkin card front. Here is a closer photo to show the embossed pumpkin pieces as well as the leaves and ribbon:

Easy card to put together and the Paper Trey Ink dies are really good --- they cut right through the heavier weight card stock from Mikes with no problems -- the pieces fall right out of the die and you do not have to poke them out or anything like that. TFL and YOLO and here is the White Pumpkin Card again:

What beautiful work! So creative! Were you able to make the pumpkin open like a regular card (with a fold?)

Hi Diane - The white pumpkin card has a full pumpkin die cut front and back pieces. I scored the back pumpkin piece near the top of the pumpkin. For the pumpkin front I used the pumpkin pieces die from PapterTreyInk for the pieces. Then I embossed all the pumpkin pieces using different embossing folders. I adhered all the pumpkin pieces to the front pumpkin die cut piece. With that done I used the ATG and put the front pumpkin piece onto the back pumpkin piece with the scored line at the top. This enables the pumpkin card to open from the bottom and it also allows the card to stand up. Added the pumpkin stem piece between the layers of the card. Thanks for your kind comment and blog visit! Candee P
