I wanted to create an autumn-y anniversary card for my son and his wife this year and, thanks for the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Textures & Frames, I pulled it off.
After stamping the pumpkins and greeting I ran the 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3-D embossing folder. Then I attached it to the 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Very Vanilla Thick card stock with a bunch of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The ‘Happy Anniversary’ greeting is stamped on the inside, again using Soft Suede classic ink.
It’s very hard to see, but there is a Soft Suede stem at the top of each pumpkin (but hidden by the ribbon!). I colored, with the Soft Suede Marker, the tip of one of the horizontal lines from the Textures & Frames stamp set, to form the stems. I created a mask with a sticky note to hide the pumpkin, before stamping the stem. The Old Olive leaves were die cut, using the Detailed Pumpkins dies. Finally I used some thin scrap gold twine (non-SU!) to resemble the curly bits from the vine. (Not such a good job there!)
This is a fairly easy card that could be morphed to celebrate so many events. Stamp your image and greeting layer and then run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with a texturizing Embossing Folder. I used only two pieces of card stock: the 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card front and the 5-1/4″ x 4″ stamped layer.
