Embossed Pumpkin Card

I’ve been loving the “white” pumpkins that have started appearing over the past few years.  I have a couple of different fake ones for decorations around the house!  I had originally thought to use this card for my Stamp Club last month, but changed my mind at the last minute to something else!  I still like how it turned out with the Petals& Paisleys Designer Paper!  Can you see the embossing on the pumpkin itself?



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Rich Razzleberry cardstock, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamped with “thanks” from Watercolor Wishes stamp set in Always Artichoke Ink.
  • A 1/2 x 5-1/4 strip of Crumb Cake was adhered to the bottom of the Very Vanilla layer, then a 2 x 5-1/4 piece of Petals & Paisley’s Designer Paper was placed over it.  On top to hide the seam, place a 1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Always Artichoke.
  • Cut three of the large Layering Ovals from Very Vanilla cardstock and emboss with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder, sponge around the edges with Crumb Cake Ink and adhere together to form the pumpkin shape.
  • Handcut a stem from Crumb Cake cardstock and sponge with Crumb Cake Ink around the edges.  Place it behind the top of the pumpkin.
  • Stamp the leaf from Vintage Leaves with Always Artichoke Ink and cut with the Leaflet Framelits.  Adhere at the top of the pumpkin with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Adhere pumpkin to the front of the base card!


That’s it!  LOVE my white pumpkin!  Want some more ideas that you’ll love?
