Pumpkin Magnet Fall Card by Judy S

With the holidays fast approaching, I wanted to send a different kind of a card this year. This year, I will add a magnet of a die cut file! This is quite easy to make and not time consuming.

Supplies needed: Magnet back vinyl, adhesive, cardstock and ribbon. Since I used a dimensional plain color paper, I used my Copic markers to color. Bosskut has the magnetic vinyl and Copics in their online store.  

I used the Bosskut files: Pumpkin by Phyllis Parkins , O’Hanna corners, oak leaf and maple leaf.

I cut my magnet vinyl with my Bosskut Gazelle. I wanted the bubbles and designs to make my pumpkin more realistic so I used a non-porous paper with the bubbles and colored the backside. You want to use alcohol based markers or paint so the color won’t slide off.
You will need to cut the file twice. One using magnet vinyl and the other in cardstock to cover the magnet.

I colored the backside of this, which was white.  You can find these textured papers easily online or at your local scrapbook store.
I used thick mulberry paper for the leaf on the pumpkin.  Mulberry paper cuts easily with my BK Gazelle.  Just be sure your mat is sticky and use tape on the corners of paper.
I then cut my corner leaves,title and O'Hanna Corner frames.  Note: Only glue the sides and bottom of the O'Hanna frames as you are using these for a pocket.  My pumpkin is 4.75 by 4 inches.  My card front 5.5 by 5.5 inches.

After adding the ribbon, your card is completed!  You could also stamp a sentiment onto the pumpkin or use the pencil feature on your Gazelle.  So hopefully, the card goes into a drawer and the magnet on a board or refrigerator.  Enjoy!
