Happy Thanksgiving Card
Welcome, Fall! We salute the crisp chill in the air with a fall-special card, one that is layered with pumpkins and pumpkin leaves as thick as the ones soon to cover up those fallen acorns in our yards. Join me as we say Happy Thanksgiving in the language of pumpkins and fall foliage.

Quick Instructions for this Project
- Make the card base from an 8.5×11-inch half-sheet, folded (to form an A2-sized card). Emboss the front of the card base using your favorite embossing folder. Set aside and prepare to stamp.
- Take a strip of white card stock measuring 1.75 x 5.5 inches. Use the instructions from the stamp set and stamp a pumpkin patch. Use the chalks and the Glaze™ pens to create add dimension to the stamped images and make the leaves look like they appear in nature, at the beginning of autumn. Trim around the stamped images at the top portion of the stamped area so you can tuck some cut-out images among the pumpkins and leaves. Make some cut-outs using the colors and stamps of your choice, then mount them on top of the stamped images. Next, glue the stamped panel to the card base.
- Then take another thin strip of white card stock and stamp the Mini Pumpkin and Mini Pumpkin Leaf in marigold ink. Use the chalks and Glaze™ pens again, to create an abstract pumpkin border. Trim around the images and then glue the strip to the bottom of the card. Then get ready to finish up with some embellishments.
- Make the sentiment medallion as shown and then embellish the card using the cord, beads, and various cut-outs. Use your imagination and have fun!
I sure hope you enjoyed this week’s card. I don’t think there’s any better way to usher in that fall feeling than with some pumpkins and the colorful shades of autumn. We’d love to see what you’re creating with our peg stamps sets, so be sure to send your photos with us so we can post them on our Facebook page.
Have a great couple of weeks creating beautiful things. In the meantime, happy stamping from Rubber Stamp Tapestry!
