Pumpkin and Spice Slimline Card

Prima Pumpkin and Spice Slimline Card

Hello, Friends!  I’m just popping in very quickly to share this quick and easy Prima Pumpkin and Spice Slimline Card.  I had a few spare minutes to play over the holiday weekend, so naturally I headed to the studio for a little free play time.

Don’t you want this pretty arrangement of pumpkins, sunflowers and lanterns on your fall table?  It’s just so cozy and welcoming!  The mix of traditional images with shabby chic hues is so much fun!

Simple Layers

Create simple layers on this 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ slimline card for the win!

  • First, cut an 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ copper cardstock layer for the background.
  • Next, cut an 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ layer of the floral pattern from Prima Pumpkin and Spice. Then stitch this to the copper cardstock layer.
  • Now fussy cut the image of the pumpkins from another sheet of Pumpkin and Spice.  Ink the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  Then back with foam tape and adhere to the center of the card.  The foam tape will really make this layer pop.
Finishing Details

Adhere a Prima Sunflower vine along the base of the card.  Secure copper and cream plaid bows in the corners.  Top with burlap string and vintage metal buttons.  Spread a little Dries Clear Adhesive around the vine and sprinkle with Prills to add a little extra texture.

Now top the little chipboard charm with ribbon, acorn charm and metal wire.  Adhere this in the left corner of the card.  So cute!

A Peek Inside

Naturally, we need to tuck a Pumpkin Chai teabag and honey stick into the inside pocket!  A little journal card is a great place to write a cheery little note.

I’m so happy that the weather has cooled down a bit here in North Carolina.  The mornings have that delicious hint of fall…and I spied my first yellow leaf on my walk today.  Hooray for pumpkins and fall leaves!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh what pretty pumpkins, Kathy! I love all the different colors. And how cute is that gingham pumpkin? The flower vine at the bottom is so different and beautiful. It really adds so much wonderful texture. That ribbon is so perfect for this card and there is that cute little acorn! Love it! Thank you for sharing, I really like the slimlines! Hugs!

    Pink pumpkins don’t sit well for me, but that acorn charm is beautiful!! Yesterday I saw my first yellow colored fall leaves on my Dogwood tree…I’m really ready for Fall to be in full swing! Summer isn’t over yet…Pac NW is going to be 92 today…YUCK!!

    This is one of those “decorative” cards that would absolutely sit out until Christmas decorating began – just a very warm, inviting focal point and gorgeous, Kathy!!!

    I love this card, Kathy! Every season is beautiful, but fall feels so refreshing after a hot summer! I’m getting ready to bake some sugar cookies cut with my leaf cookie cutters to send to a few of the grandkids that are far away at college. I hope they will perk up the drudgery of “back to school blues!” And it’s the first time making the leaf cookies, so wish me luck!
