Pumpkin Card Template

Hi Everyone! These cards were really fun to make. If you want to try it out, I posted the template that I created for this card project. Just print the image directly from the Internet. My card size without the card base - the card to the right measures 5x5". When printing the image, you may adjust the size as desired. Cut out the image and trace it on to a designer paper.

Here is the first card I made. I printed 2 copies of the template and cut the whole image out and with the second copy, I cut only the leaf and stem. I traced the template with the whole image on to designer paper and traced the leaf/stem on to a olive colored cardstock. With a sewing machine, I sewn the stitches. With the leaf, I had to hand stitch it. After designing the pumpkin shape, I adhered it to a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" card base.

I, basically, did the same thing with this card but rather than adhering it to a card base, I created a pumpkin shape card. To do this, fold a 5 1/2 x x 11" cardstock in half and trace the image with the stem on the "folded" side. Cut the image out and attach the decorated pumpkin shape on to the pumpkin shaped card base.

Click on the image. When printing the image, you will need to adjust your image to a smaller percentage because for some reason, blogger won't upload the image to scale. If printing directly from the Internet, you may need to reduce the size to 40%.

Card Details:

Paper: DCWV, SU Really Rust, More Mustard, Old Olive
Accessories: K&Co Fall die cuts, Pebbles, Inc. Ribbon
