Pick of the Patch, Dainty Delight, Days to Remember, Fall Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fall birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. The card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Designer Series Paper from the "Fresh as a Daisy" 12" x 12" package. The other side has some really pretty daisies with a beautiful mauve colored background. I hated to use this piece like that but I needed something fallish and I didn't have any fall DSP. I taped the DSP to the card base.

Next I die cut the lattice Basic White piece from the "Split Card Textures" dies using a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock. I used glue to set it in place, I thought it was the only way to go around that thin edge without making a mess. I should have used double-sided sticky sheet but I always think of this stuff after I'm done cutting. But I made it work, it's on the front of the card.

The Garden Green vine is from the "Dainty Delight" bundle. Again I should have used a double-sided sticky sheet but I didn't. So I added a dot of glue on each leaf and I set it in place on the front of the card.

Then I stamped the pumpkins from the "Pick of the Patch" set using Pumpkin Pie ink on Basic White card stock. I fussy cut them out. The leaves were stamped next. I used both leaf shapes in the set with Garden Green and Mossy Meadow ink. I fussy cut them out too. And the stems were stamped using Pecan Pie ink and they were fussy cut out. I glued the stems in place and then the leaves were added.

Dimensionals were used to set the pumpkins on the vine starting with a medium size one on the bottom and two smaller ones on the way up the vine. Just before I set the larger pumpkin in place, I thought the background there was just a bit to bright. So I took my Blending Brush and scrubbed on some Garden Green ink. 

And I waited to add the pumpkin so I could stamp the words. They are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using Pecan Pie ink. The large pumpkin was set in place with Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make. I enjoyed creating it as I went. I had no idea where I was going with it. I just knew I wanted to use the "Split Card Textures" die on a card. And this is what I ended up with.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's fall birthday card,

What a FANTASTIC layout Wanda.
The movement of this layout let your eye move around the entire card with little effort.

Ditto what KardsbyKadie said! This is really a great way to use that stamp set. I'll be saving the idea!
