Pumpkin Basket Bi-Fold Card

Have you downloaded the Pumpkin Basket Fill digi yet?  Oh, and don't forget its coordinating Basket SVG or print-and-cut files from The Creative Pointe!  Friday brings a whole new digi, so be sure to grab the Pumpkin Fill digi while it's free!

Sharing a bi-fold card tonight that I made using the Pumpkin and Basket combo.  I didn't want your "run of the mill" single fold card like usual, so I designed this one as a bi-fold card with a big cameo center.  It ties at the side in a simple bow so it's like unwrapping a little gift for the recipient.

A Few Details:
  • I printed the digi on two different orange-y autumn-type pattern papers, cut them out, and paper-pieced them so that the top and bottom pumpkins are the same and the center pumpkin is from a different pattern.
  • I used Distress Inks, Distress Stains, and an aqua pen to add shading to the pumpkins and color to the leaves and stem.
  • The basket was cut from pattern papers this time for some extra texture.  It too was shaded with Distress Ink and an aqua pen.
  • Here you see how the bi-fold opens:
