Hi everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am back to show you how to create a beautiful fall themed card! There is a video tutorial at the end of this post, so stay tuned for that, too!
The card features a DIY plaid background that I created with the Grid Stencil and Distress Oxides. I loved coming up with this fun way to stretch the use of an already great stencil – and I love that it can be customized in so many ways!
For the heart I used the Fancy Scalloped Heart dies and I did some more ink blending with Distress Oxides. I chose some blues to create a nice contrast with the warm tones of the plaid background.
The focal point of the card is a die cut pumpkin that I colored with Illustrator alcohol markers. I die cut some Neenah Solar White cardstock with the Pumpkin Shaker Die and then went ahead and colored it. Here is the list of markers I used
Orange: BO4, BO3, BO2, BO1
Green: YG3, YG2, YG1
For my sentiment I used the Trimmings Sayings One stamp set and the Simple Trimmings Dies. I did some heat embossing with gold embossing powder and I finished off the card with some Gold Foil Confetti.

As always thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
When I first saw your card I thought you had used a multi layer stamp for the pumpkin. The way you coloured the pumpkin looks awesome! Great card!
Thank you so much!
