Make some of these pumpkin greeting cards for any Fall occasion – quick, easy and super cute!
Pumpkin greeting cards aren’t just for Halloween. Pumpkins are available all through fall right up to the start of winter so you can use this seasonal motif for a good long stretch. And when you are able to make a card as artful as this idea from Kittie, you can add any sentiment to it and have a card that’s ideal for just about any occasion.
Kittie shares all her details for the making of this card over in her original pumpkin greeting cards post and we thought we would share a couple of the things she did that make this card so lovely.
First, her use of the paper from our Harvest Time Paper Pad shows off to perfection how easy it is to create a whole vibe. When you use a detailed design like this in the background, you can add those simple die cut elements and create that scene that looks like it was way more work than it actually is!
Then, Kittie shares that she cuts her pumpkins from bright yellow card stock so that when she adds her ink over them for shading and dimension, the yellow peeks through as a highlight. Great tip!
And the last tip we thought was so clever was when she inks up her ivy, she just does it in random patches. This adds such a lifelike look and is so much easier than trying to “realistically” color those tiny pieces!
Here’s what you will want to have on hand or add to your cart to make these super cute pumpkin greeting cards:
We love seeing pumpkin greeting cards getting made and used beyond the holiday season. If you’ve been trying to figure out a way to create something that is not Halloween-y, this idea is a perfect way to get started!
