Pumpkin Patch Fall Greeting Card

Pumpkin Patch Fall Greeting Card-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Pumpkin Patch Fall Greeting Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon and Carta Bella Welcome Fall

Hello, Friends!  This Pumpkin Patch Fall Greeting Card gives me all the happy fall feels!  It’s got plaid paper, plaid ribbon , Pumpkin Pie Baker’s Twine (mmmm…pumpkin pie!) and a sweet little milk bottle bouquet.  How could I not be happy?

If you’re like me, fall colors and patterns are your favorites!  I dressed up these pretty papers with some Copper and Cream Gingham Ribbon, Pumpkin Pie Baker’s Twine and pretty fall florals.  What could be better than that?

Well, if you toss in a cute little butterfly clothespin and a beautiful Champagne Butterfly from Reneabouquets, that ups the ante quite a bit!

Featuring a Small Focal Image

Here’s a handy tip for the next time you are using a small image as the focal on your card.  This darling little milk bottle bouquet stole my heart, but it was pretty tiny.  To amp up its presence on the card front, I adhered it to a couple of oversized fall blooms.

This trick is like killing two birds with one stone.  Not only did the milk bottle image now stand out front and center, but I found a good way to use those really BIG blossoms that never quite seem to work on a card.  Try it!  You’ll like it!

A Peek Inside

It’s always a happy day for me when I get to play with my autumn papers.  What joy to dress up the inside of this card with more pretty fall papers and images.

Here are some simple and fun ways to use up scraps of your pretty fall papers:

  • Group several fall patterns together on a 3×4 panel of cardstock to create a sweet little collage tag.  Then back it with cream cardstock and tuck into a pocket to be used as a note card.
  • Select images from a word block collage page and use them as accents and pockets.  So fun!
  • Score and fold a scrap of designer paper to make a little tea wallet.
  • Top a honey stick with a little banner flag cut from scraps.

This pretty packet of wildflower seeds was too good of a color match not to tuck into the pocket.  And am I the only person who selects tea bags according to the color of the packet?

Have you started your fall crafting yet?  It’s always my favorite season, and my favorite time to craft.

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

    Having not long received some stamps of mason jars and flowers, this card is fitting indeed. I now know what to create with them!

    I have tried 8 times to comment on your gorgeous Sept g45 folder, but alas no go. Do you have a time limit to comment or are overseas comms a problem? Hence since we have good internet the need to communicate with you is fast as I will be out at the glorious Great Barrier Reef over the next few days withblittle in the way of internet. I am receiving all your emails, it seems to me that your emailis blocking me and I so want to correspond?
