I'm So Glad I Live in a World With Octobers!

It's not quite October, but I am READY - are you? I've pulled out my fall stamps, and I'm using my favorite fall colors on all  of my projects. I can't ever get enough of this yellow, orange and aqua color palette so let's take a look at today's handmade autumn card.

This was a fun card to make, and I wasn't exactly sure how it was going to turn out. I'm happy with it though, and because pumpkins are pretty easy to cut, the fussy-cutting wasn't too bad. 

To begin, I stamped this row of adorable pumpkins across the card. This stamp is called Pumpkin Pals and it's large enough to be a focal point on a card, but I wanted LOTS and LOTS of pumpkins, so I stamped three rows of them.

Then, I stamped the pumpkins again on yellow and orange cardstocks. (FSJ Haystack and Tangerine Fusion)  I began cutting the pumpkins. (TIP: Stamp the row of pumpkins a few times on each cardstock color because you'll have to fussy cut every other pumpkin.) Then I just began gluing pumpkins onto the aqua cardstock. I left a few plain because . . .well. . . .I just liked the way it looked!

The simple sentiment is perfect on a long strip of cardstock. I notched the bottom edge and added a staple and bow to the top. The whole thing is mounted onto an orange card base to tie the colors together.
