The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in kraft 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!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – Cream (5-1/4″ x 4″ plus enough for die cut)
  • Cardstock – Kraft (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, plus enough for die cut)

Ink up the maple leaf from the unmounted set in whatever ink you like to make it look like a fallen leaf – maybe some green, orange, red, and purple. Stamp on the scrap paper and do this again two more times. Fussy cut out the leaves. Outline the main veins of the leaf with the Gelly Roll pen.

Die cut the cream cardstock with the smaller label die and the larger one with the kraft cardstock. Mount the sentiment and ink it in Potter’s Clay Ink. Glue the cream die cut to the kraft die cut.

Create a bow from the raffia cording and set aside.

If you want to have the dark green contrasting grass, follow these instructions, otherwise skip ahead. Lay the grass stencil on a piece of green cardstock, trace and cut out.

Lay the grass stencil on the cream cardstock about 1-1/2″ inch from the bottom. With a makeup brush and Bamboo Leaves apply over the stencil. You can make this as dark as you like and this is one way not to have to use the grass cutout.

Place the stencil on a piece of masking paper and brush the top of the grass so that you’ll know where to cut. Cut out and place over the green grass you stenciled to the card front.

Stamp the Jumbo Pumpkin three times over the mask in a color of your choice. Just keep in mind that the mask is going to represent grass in front of the pumpkins. Stamp the Mini Solid Pumpkin in another fall ink color, clean and stamp again in another color. Stamp the Tiny Solid Pumpkin three times in various colors.

Create masks for all the pumpkins you’ve stamped and apply. Stamp the Mini Pumpkin Vine along the border and between the pumpkins, then color in with a green colored pencil. You can stamp some vines before you apply the masks if you like.

Place the grass stencil above the pumpkins, moving it a bit differently than how you placed the lower stencil. Apply Pear Tart ink with a makeup brush.

Remove the masks and color in the pumpkins with the pencils.

Glue down the sentiment panels. Place the leaf cutouts together, matching up the stems. You can dry fit then against the sentiment and when you get it where you like it, glue the leaves together on the back. Glue to the card. Adhere the bow to the leaf stems and glue down the strings from the bow, snipping off any excess that hangs over the card. Glue to the card base.

For the envelope, stamp your favorite pumpkins in the center of the envelope flap add the vine and color.




  1. I think you could have actually used the top of the stencil as a mask (it’s the positive image of the bottom), although the thickness of the plastic may have created a halo. But I love the fall theme of this card, and the tricolor effect on the maple leaf. 🙂

    • I’m glad that you like it Monette and thank you for the tip. It’s been some time since I made this, so I can’t remember enough to comment on whether the stencil could have been used differently and effectively :).
