Today I'm using the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card. I love that Stampin' Up! has papers that can become the main part of a card. For this card, I cut out pieces of the pumpkins and squash from the paper to fill the basket from Cheerful Basket.
This is also a fun fold card. The base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11. Score and fold at 5 1/2. Cut 2 3/4 from the front of the card.
Use the green swirl paper from Rustic Harvest for the inside of the card. This measures 3 x 4 1/4.
For the front of the card, I used the Celebrate Everything Host Designer Series Paper. It is located in the back of the July-December Mini Catalog. This is cut to 2 3/4 x 4 1/4. Use the yellow stripe.
Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to 3 x 4 1/4. The Crushed Curry paper from Rustic Harvest will cover this piece cut to the same size.
Now we are ready for the basket from Cheerful Basket. Stamp on Crumb Cake cardstock in Memento Black. I haven't used my Watercolor Pencils in a long time. I pulled out the Watercolor Pencils, Assortment 1, and used the Early Espresso pencil. Color over the entire basket lightly. Then color a little darker on the vertical slats at the top and bottom of each section. I pulled out my Blender Pen to go over the whole basket and to blend those darker areas with the lighter ones. Use the Full Basket dies to cut out the basket. Add to the panel with dimensionals.
This is the time to arrange your vegetables in the basket. Note the long squash peeking out from behind the basket. That veggie was on the edge of my patterned paper. Using it behind the basket was a way to use it instead of throw it away. The one in front of the basket is added with a dimensional where it extends beyond the basket and with glue in the area it overlaps the basket.
Vegetables behind are added with glue. Those in front are added with dimensionals. One here also overlaps another. Glue there and dimensional where it does not overlap.
The saying here is from a set I have used in a while called Inspired Thoughts. I stamped in Memento on a 1/2 inch strip of Basic White. Notch one end by cutting up the center and then cut in to the top of the cut from the corners. This saying is also used on the inside of the card. I also added another of the long squash there.
To finish the card, adhere the basket piece. You want to center that panel with the rest of the card. Notice that part of this panel will extend over the front of the card. Do not put adhesive on that part. You do want the card to open!
So that's how to make it. This was a fun card to make. I just love how our papers can coordinate so well together. Again, for this card I used Rustic Harves and Celebrate Everything from the current mini catalog.
