A Thankful Pumpkins Card Recipe…
This week I wanted to show you this gorgeous Thankful Pumpkins Card because I love the way the pumpkins are stamped. I’m also super fond of the stitching along the top of the card. I think stitching adds so much detail, don’t you? …Now, if only I could locate the pedal to my sewing machine from my move over a year ago. But I digress… I would love to do a blog segment on sewing with paper. Anyone want to come over and help me locate it? Hopefully I find it sooner than later – fingers crossed!
This ‘gourdeous’ card is featured in Close To My Heart’s 2021 September/October Seasonal Idea Book on page 8. Also shown on this page is the gorgeous Pumpkin Spice – Cardmaking Stamp Set + Thin Cuts which include 16 images and 7 Thin Cut die-cuts.
