1. Fold Pumpkin Pie Card Base in half. Crease using Bone Folder. The fold should be along the top. Set aside.
2. Choose a leaf right off of the tree. You want to use it as soon as possible, before it dries out and starts to curl. Take a Sponge Dauber and ink it up using the Crushed Curry ink. Put the tip right into the ink pad to pick up the ink. Stamp it onto a piece of Photocopy Paper to test the colour and to remove some of the ink. Hold the real leaf on the Basic White CS. Without moving it, apply the Crushed Curry ink to the edges. repeat the process if you need more Crush Curry ink to complete the outline. Using a new Sponge Dauber for each colour, repeat these steps using Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks. TIP: When you are finished with the Sponge Dauber, put it into a plastic Ziplock bag and write the colour on the outside. The next time you want to use the Sponge Dauber with that colour ink, you’ll have one already to go.
3. Stamp “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” using Pumpkin Pie ink on Basic White CS strip; Punch out using Everyday Label Punch.
4. Assemble Card as follows:
– Adhere Cajun Craze CS to Card Base using Stampin’ Seal;
– Adhere Crushed Curry CS using Stampin’ Seal;
– Adhere stamped Basic White CS using Stampin’ Seal;
– Adhere the punched out “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” using Stampin’ Dimensionals; and,
– Decorate inside of Card with stamps as desired.
