Autumn Goodness Fun Fold Card

Hello and welcome to today’s fun fold card. I needed a few more Thanksgiving cards and the Autumn Goodness Bundle fit the bill. The Autumn Wheelbarrow dies are just fabulous! This is one of the layouts that was displayed during our OnStage event. I believe Jackie Bolhuis was the demonstrator that showcased this layout.

Card recipe:

Cuttting:

Crumb Cake cardstock @ 8″ x 4-1/2″. Score @ 2-1/2″

Soft Suede cardstock @ 4-3/8″ x 2-3/8″. Cut 2 pieces @ 4-1/2″ x 3″. One of these will be for the inside of your card.

Very Vanilla cardstock @ 4-3/8″ x 2-7/8″. Cut 2 pieces. One of these is for the inside of your card.

Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP @ 4-1/8″ x 2-1/4″

Stamping:

Stamp the sentiment on one piece of the Very Vanilla. On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla, stamp the fruit basket.

* I placed the fence die on the cardstock to make sure I had the proper placement*

Coloring:

Using your blends, markers or watercolor pencils, color in your fruit basket. I used a variety of colors from my Stampin’ Blends collection. I’ve been slowly collecting my blends. I tend to add a new color to every order I place.

At the base of the Very Vanilla cardstock (the front panel), use your sponge daubers to get some ink at the bottom of that cardstock. I used Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight. This really helps to ground the fence.

Die Cutting:

Now is the time to die cut the fence and your fruit basket/ pumpkins. I don’t know if you can tell in the photo, but there is the slightest impression of woodgrain on the fencing. Just another special detail to your card!

Let’s Finish This Card:

Add some ribbon and bling, glue everything together and pop that basket up on some dimensionals. For the inside of your card, make sure you line those layers up with the outside panel. You want them to line up perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card! I had fun creating it. I am sending out more cards than ever this year and I hope you do the same. Because, who doesn’t like to get a card?!!?

Happy crafting, Colleen

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
