The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in cream cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
On the card base, stamp the sentiment in tangelo ink a bit up from the bottom of the card. Fill in the font with yellow orange colored pencil. Mount the wagon stamp. Color just the wagon (not the buckets) in Tombow marker 977. Color the tires of the wagon with N15 marker. Stamp the wagon on a piece of white cardstock.
Color the wagon with a light umber pencil. Color the tires with a 90% warm grey pencil. Stamp the wagon again on masking paper and cut out and apply to the wagon. Create a mask for all the pumpkins you plan to put inside the wagon. Stamp the Jumbo Pumpkin first in peanut brittle ink. Stamp the Mini Solid Pumpkin in potter’s clay twice. Apply a mask to the Jumbo pumpkin. Stamp the Mini Daddy Pumpkin in tangelo ink. Apply a mask to one of the Mini Solid Pumpkins and Mini Daddy Pumpkin. Stamp the Tiny Solid Pie Pumpkin in morocco ink and the Tiny Baby Pumpkin in morocco and apply mask. Stamp the Tiny Pie Pumpkin again in tangelo. Remove the masks.
Stamp the Mini Vine and Tiny Leaves on top of the pumpkins. Color in the wheels in 30% grey. Color in the pumpkins using the various pumpkin colored pencils and apple green for the stems and vines. Use the powder blue pencil to create a sky.Use the apple green pencil to create a lawn and grass. Die cut the wagon with a rectangle die.
Apply foam tape to the back of the die cut and adhere to the card base a bit above the sentiment.
Using the orange colored pencil make stitches along the outer edge of the card.
Put some Nuvo drops in the center of the tires and trace along the U shape inside the tires to create a bit of dimension.
For the envelope, stamp the pumpkins along the bottom front of the envelope.
