Pumpkin Butterfly Bouquet Card Folio
Hello, Friends! I’m one of those folks that loves pumpkin everything, but I’m especially fond of this Pumpkin Butterfly Bouquet Card Folio. Copper and autumn and pumpkins and acorns and butterflies and fall flowers just belong together.
You know how a really good autumn stew combines a bunch of different ingredients to create the perfect bite? Well, I sort of used that same approach when putting this project together. The cover of this 7 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ folio features Copper and Cream plaid ribbon. It’s one of my favorites for fall because of the warmth it brings to a composition. It picks up all the lovely tawny hues the Blue Fern Bird Waltz paper that I used on this card.
The delicate swirled layer behind my floral pumpkin patch is created with Spellbinders Merry Filigree Card Making die. Cut from copper foiled cardstock, it lends elegance and subtle shine to the background.
The Pumpkin Patch
Reneabouquets swept me off my feet with this Autumn Beauty Pumpkin. Fall flowers around the base serve as an anchor. Pumpkin Spice Butterflies flit lazily in this end of season flower garden.
TIP: Brush acorns with copper metallic paint, then cozy them up to the copper and cream ribbon and burlap string bow cluster.
A Surprise Inside
One of the things I love the most about this time of year is fall baking. After a long, steamy summer, it’s really fun to take the chill off the house by baking some pumpkin goodies.
So I created a hidden recipe card pocket on the top of this card. Copper and cream plaid ribbon makes a pretty closure. Pumpkin bread is one of my favorite fall treats, so I tucked a recipe for it in the pocket, along with 2 blank recipe cards. This way the recipient can add their favorite fall recipes, too. And if you’re going to bake pumpkin bread, you really should have a cuppa! So a little packet of honey, a demitasse spoon, and a tea and chocolate wallet fill the box pocket on the bottom. Have you discovered yet how delicious chocolate is with pumpkin? You really should give it a try!
What’s your favorite fall baked good? I’d love to hear about it in the comment section below.
