A little pumpkin of Thanks

One of the cards of this month’s card club is this little pumpkin card. All inks, cardstocks and stamps used in this card are from Close To My Heart. Here we go…
You need a 5 ½”x 8 ½” card base of sweat leaf cardstock, a 5 ¼”x4” piece of grey wool cardstock, a 3”x4” piece of sunset cardstock and a 2 ¾”x2 ¾” piece of colonial white cardstock.
Stamp pumpkin image in sunflower in the middle of the colonial white piece. Stamp leaf in olive ink and branches in chocolate. Adhere grey piece onto green base in the center. The orange piece will be adhere off center height as seen in the photo and do the same with the pumpkin piece with the leaf.

Now, on a second piece of colonial white cardstock stamp the pumpkin base again in sunflower ink. Stamp the lettering part of the set in autumn terracotta in second generation onto the first on. Stamp the little pumpkin stamp in olive. Now cut out the pumpkin including the green stamp. Place foam dots on the backside and stick the pumpkin right above the one on the card.

Glue a 4” piece of green ribbon on the sunset bottom and embellish with two sparkles. Stamp Thanksgiving in grey wool on the base and your card is done.

Let meknow if you like to know more about the second generation stamping technique.
