Card A Day Blog Post: Autumn Greetings

Hi everyone, it's hard to believe fall is almost here. It seems like it wasn't that long ago that school got out, and we were looking forward to a relaxing summer break.

Today, for my post at the Card A Day Blog, I have a card that I made to send in my next shipment to Operation Write Home.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. For my background paper, I embossed a piece of medium brown card stock paper with the pumpkins Cuttlebug embossing folder that was cut to 5.25" x 4", rounded off the opposite corners with my corner rounder, and adhered it to the front of my card base.

For my image and greeting I used a medium brown ink pad, the pumpkin vine and the autumn greetings stamps from the Inkadinkado clear stamp set, Autumn Foliage, and stamped them on a piece of white card stock, cut at 3.75" x 3". I colored the pumpkin and blooms with different shades of orange and yellow. Then I inked the edges with orange ink. Sorry if I wasn't specific about some of the supplies I used, but I made this card a while back, and can't remember some of them.

Before I attacked my image to my card base, I cut three pieces of brown velvet ribbon that is edged with gold stitching, cut it at about 2", then cut a "V" at the ends, then adhered them to the right side of the image. I then added that piece to my embossed card front.

I hope you like my card, and that you will leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Make sure to stop by the Card A Day Blog every day for some wonderful card making ideas. Also, don't forget to check out our monthly challenge for a chance to win a wonderful prize!
