Cardmaking has always been and probably will be my first love. I should probably have kept track of the number of cards I've made! And I love making Thanksgiving cards to send to friends and family. This year, I went with copper and berry for my colors. Technically, the "copper" is considered rose gold but it's copper to me!
- Scrapbook Papers (I had these on hand. Craftsmith, Craftsmart, and Recollections from Michaels.)
- Layered Pumpkin SVG (I used one from Creative Fabrica)
- Digital Cutting Machine (I used my Cricut Explore 2)
- Tape Gun and Spray Adhesive
- Iridescent Sequins
The great thing about "building up a paper collection" (or what Mr. Chocolate calls "How can you possibly need MORE paper?") is how you can pull out different stacks and mix and match. It's also a great way for me to find inspiration. These were the stacks from the stash I used.
I downloaded the image, imported into Cricut Design Space and used 3 of the 4 layers. (Orange, Pink, and Grey).
This is the first layer.
Layers one and two. I used a 3M Spray Adhesive to attach each layer since they're so delicate.
And finally, all three layers combined! For the cards, I used a 110lb cream cardstock (Recollections) and then cut panels from the paper stacks I'd selected.
I used foam tape to attach the layered pumpkin to the cards just to give things a little depth. To finish, I grabbed some iridescent sequins from my stash and used a dimensional glue to attach.
