Corn on the Cob Fall Greeting Card

 
Greeting cards are SO much fun to make. I love being able to take a plain white empty card and turn it into something with meaning. I was actually inspired to make this card because I had some scrap green, orange and yellow papers laying around and I had the "Harvest Plenty" stamp so I thought of the idea to make a corn on the cob to go with it on the card! It was a little time consuming making the corn, but I was so happy with the way it turned out in the end.
 
To make the corn on the cob embellishment:
 
You need
Golden Yellow, Green and White or Cream colored card stock papers
Scissors
Glue Stick
Circle punch (small) (a hold punch may work too)
 
First cut a oval  shape out using your white or cream card stock paper. Then punch out a bunch of circle pieces using yellow and cream card stock. Glue the circle pieces starting at the bottom of the cob and layer them all the way to the top in a mixed pattern. Cut out a few green cob leafs and glue them around the cob to achieve the look (you can play around to where you want them placed and what you think looks best). When you are happy with the way it looks cut off a little of the bottom of the cob and fold over some of the cob leaf ends.

    1. Thanks! Andrea cards are by far the most fun to make our of all crafts I have done. The only problem is it gets a little pricey with all the random stuff to get to make them, expecially the cricut cuz each cartridge cost 30-80 bucks.
