Vintage Map Fall Card

Hi, Connie here with a unique card creation using a vintage map as a background against a truckload of pumpkins. Perfect for a fall-themed card! A combination of etched dies and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products really makes it easy for this kind of paper piecing project.

Start with determining what cardstock or patterned paper will fit the theme of the card. Then die-cut the shapes. To give it more depth and interest, shade the images with ink. I ended up cutting the pumpkins down to make them smaller.

Embellish the Card Front

  1. Add 3D Foam Circles White Mix to the back of the pumpkins, sign, tires, and small dog shapes.
  2. Adhere Happy Fall to the sign with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
  3. Attach the truck to the map panel and the pumpkins in the bed of the truck with the E-Z Runner Grand White Permanent Dispenser. Add the other shapes to the panel.
  4. Next, place the vintage map on a white cardstock panel using the E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Strips.

For more dimension, use the Crafty Foam Tape 108′ on the back of the matted map, and adhered to a black cardstock panel. Then mat on a sage green cardstock panel and lastly to the card base with the E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Strips.

Add acrylic paint to enhance the die cuts. Highlight the scene with stamps. Place stars and a paper doll boy face on the card to complete.
