Fall Greeting Cards

It's Fall, the time of year we love to hunker down, light a fire get out the stew pot and think about all the things we have to be thankful for!  Here's a card that can be used as an invitation, thank-you card, or maybe just a note to say hello! 
You will need:
Joy® iron-on embroidered letters: 1/2" Black Monogram letter sheet
Kraft card and envelope:  5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Cardstock:  green, orange, dark yellow, black and brown
Inkpads:  green, orange, dark yellow and brown
Wedge sponges
Fall leaves and pumpkin shapes
Paper trimmer
Adhesives
Clear glitter - optional


Instructions:

1.  Sponge the edges of the leaves with ink then adhere to a 1/2" x 5-1/2" strip of green card stock.  Cut out a pumpkin.



2.  Cut a 5" black square and a 4 1/2" brown cardstock square.  Sponge edges of the card, brown card stock with ink then layer and glue together as shown.


3.  Glue the pumpkin, letters and strip of leaves to the card as shown.  Apply clear glitter to highlight the edges of the pumpkin, leaves and letters to finish for a frosty sparkle.

Joy® iron-on embroidered letters and numbers can be found in a variety of fonts, sizes and colors at your favorite craft stores!
