Rustic pumpkin harvest card!

Fun fold card with the Hello Harvest Bundle!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a Joy Fold Card featuring the Hello Harvest Bundle and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper! Fun fold cards are a great way to step out from your traditional card making, but what I love about this card is that you can use two pieces of the Rustic Harvest DSP to really give it the Fall and Thanksgiving theme! This Joy Fold Card is super easy to make, which is great for any of your other cards, and there is just a little stamping and die-cutting involved. Since the holidays can be a little hectic, I like it when I find a card design that is easy to make and looks like I put a lot of time and effort but didn’t! lol

There are two different card base layers, the larger is Cajun Craze cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 8 ¼”, scored at 5 ½” along the 8 ¼” side. The smaller is Early Espresso cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 7 ½” and scored at 3 ¾”:

For the DSP base layers, I chose these two different designs from the Rustic Harvest DSP, one design is cut at 4” x 5 ¼” (make sure your design is horizontal like this pumpkin one is) and the other design is also cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, but the longer piece is cut at 4” x 2 ½” and the opposite side of the design is cut at 3 ½” x 3 ½”. You will have a ½” x 3 ½” strip left over that you can either use for the inside of this card or save it for another time:

For the 3 ¾” x 3 ¾” fold, which will be the front of the card, you will need:

1. From Gold Foil cardstock, use the large pumpkins dies and two of the vine dies to die-cut out.

2. From Mossy Meadow cardstock, use two of the vine dies to die-cut out.

3. From Early Espresso cardstock, use the stem die to die-cut out.

4. On Thick Basic White cardstock, stamp the pumpkin in Versamark and heat set with Gold Embossing powder. This is colored in with Light and Dark Cajun Craze and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and then die-cut out with the coordinating die.

5. You will need three Amber Gems, not pictured.

Adhere the layers of the large die-cut pumpkin together with the Mossy Meadow vines and adhere the gold foil vines to the die-cut pumpkin:

You will first adhere the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP to the inside of the Cajun Craze cardstock card base, the 4” x 2 ½” piece of DSP to the outside flap, and the 3 ½” x 3 ½” piece of DSP to the front of the Early Espresso cardstock card base. I used liquid glue to adhere the back of the Early Espresso cardstock card base to the center of the inside DSP, adhered the gold foil pumpkin to the front flap, used dimensionals to adhere the die-cut pumpkin over the gold foil pumpkin, and placed the three Amber Gems as shown:

For the inside, cut a 3 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Basic White cardstock, use an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to partially ink the sentiment from Lovely You, stamp the flowers as shown in Early Espresso ink and color in with a Crushed Curry and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers:

For the coordinating Basic White Medium Envelope, I stamped the same flower in Early Espresso ink and colored in with a Crushed Curry and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers:

How cute is this card?? If you are looking for an easy way to use up your DSP, then you should try this card! You can make six cards using up two 12” x 12” sheets of DSP and you can change the front flap design by using some of the other stamps and dies from the Hello Harvest Bundle! Better yet how about using different designs from the DSP, but keeping the card layout the same? There’s an idea for this week’s tutorials – so stay tuned for my next card!

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
