Thanksgiving Card with Pumpkins Chipboard
November 17, 2021
Tami here on the blog with you today with a card I'd like to show you.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do you have all your recipes pulled out and your shopping list made?
Do you share your bounty with any relatives, friends or neighbors? How about making a card to go along with your offering.
Clear Scraps makes a LOT of chipboard embellishments and they can help you pull a card together in a snap!
I used the Pumpkins Chipboard Embellishment to make this Thanksgiving Card...
To make the card, I started with a 10 X 5 piece of kraft cardstock that was folded in half to make the card base.
A 4 3/4 square piece of green printed paper was adhered at the center for a mat. Then a strip of printed paper was added down the left side. I liked the pattern that was on the paper, so I cut around the design on the top of the strip.
To embellish the chipboard pumpkins, I used Scribble Sticks to color the pumpkin, stem and leaves, then used a damp paintbrush to smooth out the colors. The wash of water also brightens the colors.
I covered the solid pumpkin with printed paper and backed the open pumpkin with a coordinating paper. I used the Sanding Stick to smooth away the excess paper around the edges of the chipboard.
I added a sticker for the sentiment and adhered a small paper banner to the end of it.
I used Foam Tape to adhere the open pumpkin to the card.
Printed papers and chipboard pieces were lightly distressed using brown chalk ink.
