Today’s post is a soft, subtle, and happy hello card showcasing the Hello Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper.

It’s quick and easy to put together and is the perfect way to let someone know you’re thinking of them.

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • I cut a Basic White card base 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • The Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper is die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies.
  • The smaller Gingham patterned layer measures about 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″.
  • The larger Gingham patterned layer measures about 3″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Stamp the large pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Shade the pumpkin with a Blender Pen and Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Stamp the sunflower cluster with Crumb Cake ink.
  • Add color to the sunflower cluster with your Blender Pen. I used Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • The shading with your Blender Pen goes quickly.
  • Add color only to the lines in the stamp.
  • The shading in the sunflower cluster is done with a small bit of ink on the tip of the Blender Pen.
  • Be sure to clean your Blender Pen by running the sides along a scrap of paper until it’s clean. Lightly touch the tip of the brush to the scrap paper to clean it.
  • Now you can go to your second color.
  • I used Crushed Curry first, Pumpkin Pie, then Granny Apple Green.
  • Die cut the pumpkin and sunflower cluster with the matching dies.
  • I stamped the sentiment with Crushed Curry ink onto a small piece of Basic White cardstock.
  • Using the smallest Deckled Edge Die, die cut the sentiment layer. The layer measures about 1″ x 2 1/4″.

Assemble The Card

  • Attach the larger layer to the card base front as shown, then attach the smaller layer as shown. I offset both layers on the card front.
  • Attach the pumpkin with Dimensionals.
  • Add two Dimensionals to the top portion of the sunflower cluster and a line of glue to the bottom.
  • Attach the flower cluster to the top of the pumpkin, as shown.
  • Attach the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals.
  • Add your embellishment. I used one of the Amber Gems from the Rustic Harvest Suire.

The Inside

  • The Basic White layer is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • I cut two strips from scraps of DSP to create a bottom border.
  • They both measure 4 1/4″ long. One strip is 3/4″ wide, and the other is 1/4″ wide.
  • I stamped the small sunflower stamp with Pumpkin Pie ink.

So, “deckle” the edges of Gingham Cottage DSP, stamp a pumpkin and some sunflowers, blend in some color, add a bold sentiment, and create a card to say hello.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
