Pumpkin Ribbon Bow Card

Hello! Dawn Rene here to share a fall card I made with the October Creative Kit of the Month - Fall Harvest. The rustic colors and textures in this kit are amazing. The focus for this card is the layering of all the fabulous papers with their stamps and also a ribbon bow.

I documented some of the steps I took in making it below to share with you!

The card base is cream cardstock and the finished dimensions are 5" x 6 3/8". The papers layered on top include:
* Orange Cardstock: 4 7/8" x 6 2/8"
* Autumn Song - Leaves (Cream Side): 4 6/8" x 6"
* Autumn Song - Leaves (Flower Side): 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
* Orange Cardstock: 7/8" x 3 1/2"
* Autumn Song - Amber (Diamond Side): 1/2" x 3 1/2"
* Autumn Song - Amber (Striped Side): 1" x 6"
* Autumn Song - Amber (Diamond Side): 1" x 6"
All the pieces of paper are distressed with Cocoa Ink.

Next I stamped the pumpkins on cream cardstock with the Cocoa Ink. I colored in the pumpkins with Copic Markers (Y35, Y38, YG61, YG67, E25). Then I fussy cut out the pumpkins and distressed with the Cocoa Ink.

I cut out a decorative shape from the Autumn Song Twilight paper and layered it on the card above the Autumn Song Leaves square.

Then I cut out a decorative shape from the Autumn Song Leaves paper and a piece of the burlap (about 2" x 2 1/2"). I layered the pumpkins on the patterned paper and burlap. The pumpkins are adhered with Kool Tak Foam to make them pop!

I stamped the word "Pumpkins" from the Kit with Cocoa Ink and distressed around the edges. Then adhered it to the card.

The words "Autumn" and "Harvest" from the Kit were stamped with Cocoa Ink on decorative shapes and adhered to the card. The "Harvest" shape is raised to give it dimension with Kool Tak Foam.

The last part of the project - making the ribbon bow! I cut 4 pieces of ribbon 4" long. I laid the 4" piece of ribbon on the card and then folded in each end to the center and adhered with a dot of glue. I continued this same process adding another piece of ribbon on top at a slight angle from the one below it.

The bow is topped off with a wood button and twine from the kit.

I colored three flat back pearls with Copic markers to match the papers and adhered them to the top right of the card! Voila - all done!

This is a picture of the completed project again.
