Happy First Day of Fall, Y’all! Unpopular opinion, but I am ready fall! The smoke is here, so need the rains to come and clear it up! I’m looking forward to cooler days, football games and lot more crafty sessions!
Sharing a kinda over the top card today! I tried to make my first interactive card! A lot went wrong, but I still wanted to share it, as art isn’t perfect and motivate those of your too intimidated to create interactive cards!
I made a valley fold on one of the die cuts and stamped the row of pumpkins along the top from Pretty Pink Posh‘s Fall Borders stamp set. After coloring the image with copic markers, I fussy cut the top half, you can also use the NEW coordinating die cuts to partially die cut, but they hadn’t been released when I started this card!
Next I inked up the second die cut, this time scoring with a mountain fold. After scoring I inked it up with distress oxides inks in Wilted Violet, Salvaged Patina, and Broken China. I also splattered it with some gold paint.
Next I stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of images from multiple Pretty Pink Posh stamp sets. Here are the sets and coordinating :
1. Fall Signs : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
2. Fall Corners : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
3. Cozy Fall Critters : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
I used A LOT of copic markers and remembered to take a picture for y’all!
With all the elements colored and shaded, I started to assemble the card, first by adding the pop up arm, and playing around with the placement if all the leaves. I ended up not using the pumpkins.
Finally finishing off the card by adhering everything together!
Thanks for following along on a very long blog post! I really hope this inspires you to create something new or attempt something you have been avoiding!
