DIY Pumpkin Seasonal Card -Spellbinders

DIY - Cards with Seasonal Charm
It's just about pumpkin season where I live.   Warm orange and browns; bold yellows and golds.   The colors of autumn.  

I love making pumpkin shapes.  Such a simple shape and yet so captivating.   

I have a simple DIY tutorial sharing how I turned the fabulous Spellbinders Designer Series -Venise Lace Victoriana Crest by Becca Feeken into a gorgeous pumpkin.  Quite a versatile die in my opinion.  
I'm obsessed with this particular die.  I've used this die recently on a different card and just adore the die so I am using it some more since it puts a smile on my face.  
 And isn't that what crafting is all about?  

 My paper choice is Graphic 45 - French Country 12x12 collection.  Gosh - not sure I can truly convey just how rich and gorgeous this collection is.  (My words fail me - a very rare situation when my words aren't adequate.)

DIY Instructions

Step 1.  Cut 3 ovals, 1 decorative oval, and some medallions using  Spellbinders Designer Series -Venise Lace Victoriana Crest by Becca Feeken.
Ink the edges for shading if desired.  

Step 2.  Position two ovals onto the card on a bit of a tilt.  

Step 3.  Add foam dots or dimensional tape to the back of the third oval if you prefer - or keep it flat for easy mailing!  
Step 4.  Add the medallion dies to the pumpkin for leafy greens and a decorative stem.  
See how simple?  And yet you will make someone smile when they receive your heartwarming, thoughtful, HANDMADE card.
