Fall Card "Pumpkin Spice Junkie" Instructions
1. Stamp designs onto white card stock
To get started, gather all of your materials so you have them accessible.
If you have a Cricut machine, you can use the Have A Hap-pie Thanksgiving free Cricut file and Hello Fall free Cricut file to cut out your stamp images before inking. If you don't have a cricut machine, place your white card stock onto a craft mat or paper to protect your surface.
In addition to your cutouts, prep your white cardstock and patterned paper by cutting them out according to your desire.
Using clear stamps is easy, simply peel your stamp from it backing sheet and place it onto an acrylic stamp block. The photopolymer is slightly tacky, so your stamp can easily stick and be removed from your stamp block.
Stamp all the designs on the white card stock. Just make sure to leave enough space between each impression for easy cutout.
2. Glue paper layers to card
Using any glue or adhesive, start to layer your colored and patterned paper according to your desire then attach them to the base card. We recommended using a glue runner for easy and mess-free placement.
3. Shade for some dimension
Now it's time to start shading to create dimension. Take the lightest shade first and lightly build your base layer. Then gradually build up the dimension using medium and darkest shade. Use minimal pressure to start. You can always darken the shadow with more layering but cannot remove the shading you've added.
4. Assemble the card
After you're satisfied with the way your designs look, time to assemble your card. Glue down your elements onto the card. If you want to add a 3-D effect, use some adhesive styrofoam dots to raise the designs. Simply add the styrofoam dots to the back of the designs and place them onto the card. You can also add some embellishments to help spice up the card.
