My friend Pat sent me this beautiful Painted Harvest handmade autumn card for Thanksgiving.  I LOVED her card so much, I just had to share it with you so you could Pin it and CASE it. 

Did you know CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything?  And it’s what we stampers love to do!  

So don’t be shy.  Feel free to Pin it to your Pinterest boards.  It’s always a great idea to save fabulous designs like this so you can craft up a handmade autumn card.

I LOVE this stamped and die-cut handmade autumn card

I’m not sure what appeals to me the most.

  • The simple layout
  • Her colour choices (save my Inkspiration below to keep it in mind)
  • That Buffalo Check stamped background (isn’t that your FAVE new background stamp?)
  • Her punched and die-cut embellishments peeking out from the framed sunflower , or
  • The sunflower (you probably already know, it’s my all-time favourite flower 🌻)

What do you like the best about it?  Leave me a comment.

Let me show you Pat’s colour combo which is just ideal for this time of year.

Tips for a Painted Harvest handmade autumn card

 

I LOVE this handmade autumn card

 

  1. Pull out your Stamparatus for exact and full-coverage placement of the Buffalo Check background stamp.
  2. Cut your Whisper White panel slightly smaller than the stamp so you get complete coverage with one stamping.  Pat’s is 4” x 5 1/4”.
  3. Pick out two coordinating stamp pad colours to create your sunflower.  Pat use Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.
  4. Rotate your sunflower stamp just slightly to offset the darker Pumpkin Pie petals.
  5. Sponge Pumpkin Pie ink onto one punched out Daffodil Delight leaf for a rustic and matched feel.
  6. Use a variety of die-cuts and colours to accent your focal point.  Here you can see 2 leaf punches in 2 colours and a leaf embossed and die cut from the In the Woods framelits.

 

Here are all the supplies Pat used to create her awesome handmade autumn card.  To add these to your own stash of goodies, simply click on the image.

This is NOT your average handmade autumn card

Did you Pin it to save for later?

If you love the Painted Harvest set as much as I do here’s another vellum card idea you might want to pin.  

Inspiration for our card making comes from so many places.  And imitation is the gosh-darn BEST form of flattery.

Don’t be afraid to completely copy a design you love.  Or use it as a jumping-off point.  Or just take elements you can’t live without and incorporate them into your own layout.

Give it a try.  Take little pieces of Pat’s design and add them to your own handmade autumn card this year and see what you can come up with.
