Happy Autumn Days – Cardmaking with Glitter and Shimmer Vellum

Saturday October 2nd was world cardmaking day. Here is a great site with some more information about WCMD. We love making cards and we took the opportunity to craft a card using a few of our favorite specialty papers.

Supplies for Autumn Days card:

  • Smoke Colorplan Cardstock
  • Yellow Shimmer Vellum
  • Pale Green Glitter Cardstock
  • Gold Glitter Cardstock
  • Fall precut die cuts (pumpkin, sentiments)
  • Wood printed pattern paper
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • ruler
  • scoring tool


  1. Create card base using Smoke Colorplan cardstock. Cut to 5.5″ x 8.5″. Score and fold in half.
  2. Cut a piece of wood printed pattern paper to 4″ x 4″. Mount to card base slightly askew. Trim excess paper to align with edge of card. See card for placement.
  3. Cut pieces of Pale Green and Gold Glitter cardstock to 1″ x 3″. Flag the ends of the card stock to create a “ribbon” look. Arrange and adhere to wood printed pattern paper. See card for placement.
  4. Cut of piece of yellow Shimmer Vellum to 1.5″ x 7″. Score paper every .25″ and cover entire piece. Accordion fold the shimmer vellum (fold back and forth) to create a skirt. Tack down to card front on each end. See card for placement.
  5. Arrange sentiment on top of Shimmer Vellum.
  6. Arrange pumpkins and other sentiments to card front to create a cluster scene.

We hope you enjoyed this simple card and are inspired to craft a version for yourself.
