Embossed Pumpkins Birthday Card

You can surprise someone who has an autumn birthday with a card that is appropriate for the season. Pumpkins are popular motifs and this card combines two different pumpkin embossing folders from Cuttlebug which harmonize well together. One folder is used for the background and the other is a die and embossing folder set.

For this project you will need:

- a white card measuring 10x15 centimeters
- circle die measuring approximately 6 cm in diameter
- scallop die measuring approximately 7.5 cm in diameter
- die cutting machine of your choice that is compatible with the chosen embossing folders and dies
- a white card measuring 10x15 centimeters
- white and orange cardstock
- one orange mini brad

Cuttlebug Pumpkin Die and Embossing Folder

1. Cut a 9 x 14 cm rectangle from the orange cardstock. Then cut an 8.5 x 8.5 cm white rectangle and emboss it with the pumpkins folder. Use artist chalks to slightly add color to the raised areas (the pumpkins and leaves). Adhere it then centered onto the top of the orange rectangle so that there is a small border on the top, right and left hand sides.
2. Stamp and emboss the sentiment onto white card and cut out as a rectangle with the sentiment in the center of the rectangle. Adhere the rectangle orange cardstock and cut it out with a very small border at the top, bottom and right side. Add 2 cm to the left side and then cut the left side. Then adhere the sentiment to the bottom of the rectangle you cut out in the previous step.
3. Now glue the large orange rectangle centered onto the card. The brad is hidden underneath and cannot be seen when the card is opened.
4. Cut a strip of orange cardstock that is 1 cm wide and 9 cm long. Adhere it as a border between the embossed white background on the card and the area below it.
5. Die cut an orange scallop and a white circle. Slightly brush on orange artist chalk to the edge of the circle and then adhere it to the orange scallop.
6. Die cut and emboss an orange pumpkin. Then add red artist chalk to the raised areas of the pumpkin and green chalk to the leaf and stem. Then glue the pumpkin over the circle.
7. Use 3-D foam pads or tape and now adhere the scallop onto the card, positioned like you see in the photo.
