Pumpkin Bracket Card!


Here is just a fun, quick and easy card that can be used for any occasion in the Autumn months. I found this 8x8 bracket template online and decided to make this card with it. You can print the bracket out below using the same template. Cut it out and trace it onto whatever paper you want. I first folded my cardstock and then traced the template leaving the top of the bracket "touching" the fold line so when cut out it is still attached at the top.

I used some cardboard as my background which I ran my white ink pad over to give a little more dimension. The Pumpkin label I printed out of Print Shop. I attached some sheer ribbon, black and white ribbon, Prima flowers, faux leaves, a black brad and I added some "stitches" to the edge of the bracket with my white paint marker to finish it all off. Hope you like it!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and Happy Columbus Day to all my Italian American friends and family!! And to my Mom who is down visiting my sister and brother-in-law in Memphis, I miss and love you all!! I will take care of Dad while your gone! ;)

Have a great Sunday!!

Hugs, Melissa

WOW...what a gorgeous card, and what a great find that template was! I am going to save it, as I keep hand drawing my cards, but hey, if I don't have to, why should I? Thanks for the share!
