October Anniversary Card

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.

Textures & Frames Pumpkins
Did you “see” the pumpkins in the Textures & Frames stamp set when you first saw it in the Sale-a-Bration brochure?


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.


Textures & Frames Pumpkins

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.

I’m glad you stopped by today.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.  You can also email me at blythe@stampingwithblythe.com.
