Fall Pumpkins
by Jennifer Van Pelt

Hello from hot Sunny San Diego,

We have been having record heat here and I am daydreaming of fall so I made this fall pumpkin card to help remind me that we are really in the fall season and it will be cooling off soon.


I used the ColorBurst Sepia and Orange for the colors on the background and pumpkins. I think I am addicted to playing with them and finding new ways to colors things and new things to color with them...so much fun and the Memory Box dies make perfect cuts in the thick watercolor paper I use so it is a match made in heaven!

Before I put the pumpkins on the card I bent them at the stitched creases and it added a little dimension to them, giving the pumpkins a very realistic look and making them seem to pop right off the front of the card. I really liked the effect.


I had some fun putting the extra birds from the Flying Birds die set that I didn't use on the card front on the inside of the card for the recipient as a little surprise for when they opened their card too. I love adding a little something unexpected on the inside of cards for people to find and I hope give them a reason to smile again. I hope you like the card, I sure had fun making it!




Great card - love the combo of dies you used!
