Autumn Goodness Card

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.

Today, I’d like to share with you this Card created with the *Autumn Goodness Bundle* and the *Banner Year Stamp Set*

In the Texas heatwave of August, there’s no better time to think of pumpkins, leaves changing colors, hay rides, hoodies and bonfires than August. We’re beyond roasting down here with temperatures often well above 120° with the heat index. I have a tradition for the 1st of September (even if it’s 120° outside) to make my first batch of chili as good omen that cooler weather will begin to arrive.

*Supply List*

Autumn Goodness Bundle

Banner Year Stamp Set

Whisper White Cardstock (scraps)

Very Vanilla Cardstock

Crumb Cake Cardstock

Cajun Craze Cardstock

Blackberry Bliss Cardstock

Plaid Tidings DSP

Forever Fernery Ribbon Combo Pack (Annual Catalog)

*Measurements*

Blackberry Bliss Cardstock 4 1/4″×11″ scored at 5 1/2″

Cajun Craze Cardstock 4″×5 1/4″

Very Vanilla Cardstock 2 1/4″×3 3/4″

Plaid Tidings DSP 2″×3 3/4″

*Assembly Instructions*

Stamp the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness Stamp Set on the Very Vanilla Cardstock.

Stamp the wheelbarrow, wheel, pumpkin arrangement and corn husks and hand color with the Stampin’ Write Markers. Run them with the Dies through your die cutting machine. I also die cut the picket fence at the same time.

Aligning the picket fence up with the DSP, add Stampin’ Seal to the back of the DSP and slide it under the picket fence. Then secure the picket fence down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next, again using your Stampin’ Seal, secure your stamped Very Vanilla Cardstock to the top.

*Note* It is okay for the Very Vanilla and the DSP to overlap slightly. You will not see it once you cover the seam with ribbon and neither will the recipient of this card.

Flip the Matte Base over and add just a smidge of the Stampin’ Seal+ to the back of it where the Very Vanilla Cardstock and DSP meet and add secure your ribbon across the front and secure at the other end and then trim. Cut a small amount of ribbon to add knot or “faux bow” to the front.

Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of your corn husks and wheelbarrow/pumpkin arrangement.

Inside Cardbase

For the inside Cardbase, I cut a Very Vanilla Matte Base measuring 4″×5 1/4″ and stamped both sentiments from the Autumn Goodness Stamp Set and I just couldn’t resist that “Happy Fall Ya’ll” sentiment from the Banner Year Stamp Set. (Also available as a Bundle in the Holiday Mini Catalog) After all, I is a Texan!!!

*Special Note* I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in my Blog before but I work part time at a farm (and full time over the holidays) and so I made a very large batch of these to give to the farm owners, my farm supervisor and coworkers that I work with on the farm to close out our Pumpkin Days tradition the first part of November.

Thank you so much for reading along today. I hope you’ll join me again soon. Until then…Happy Stampin’ Everyone!!
