1- Emboss the Pebbled Path cardstock piece with your choice of Embossing Folder. I used the Crosshatch from the Basic 3D Embossing Folder Pack. Add this to the front of the cardbase.

2- Cut out the center from the Gold Foil piece with about ½” border. This will give you a piece that is about 3 1/8” x 1 7/8”. Save this for card #6.

3- Add the Gold behind the 4” x 2 ¾” Box Template piece at an angle. . Add this to the center of the cardbase with dimensionals.

4- Stamp three Pumpkins and one Branch Images on Basic White Cardstock and fussy cut out.

Here is a fun technique I used to get a variegated look to your images.

• For the Branch, ink with Lost Lagoon all over, add Mossy Meadow with a Stampin’ Sponge Dauber to add another layer of color to the leaves.

• Then color with a Copper Clay Stampin’ Write Marker to Branch sections and again with the Pebbled Path Marker on the Berries section.

• Use a tissue to blot it over the stamp to remove some of the ink. Stamp on the cardstock.

• Ink up the Pumpkin image with your choice of ink, I used Copper Clay, Crumb Cake, & Mossy Meadow.

• Do the same technique with a tissue over the pumpkins, stamp on Basic White cardstock.

• Repeat with the other colors. And add the stem with Mossy Meadow ink.

• Fussy cut out all images.

5- Add the Pumpkins in a triangle shape with dimensionals.

6- Section the Branch into two or three sections and tuck them behind and in between the Pumpkins.

7- Stamp your greeting in Pebbled Path on one of the Banners.

8- Wrap the Linen Thread around a couple fingers and adhere behind the greeting. Add to the left of the card with dimensionals.

9- Add Gold Sequins.
