Pumpkin Card


How about a pumpkin card for today? It's a little plain. It needs something else, but I don't know what yet. I'll figure it out later, or I may just leave it like it is.

I love making pumpkin cards! They are so easy!!

I used to use an oval punch for the pumpkin, but now I use the Cricut cartridge Plantin Schoolbook to make the ovals. Much, much faster! I pieced 3 ovals together to make the pumpkin; added a stem using Cricut cartridge Walk In My Garden grass stems and voila!

The swirly design (grass stems in pumpkin patch) was made with Cricut cartridge Home Accents.

I used a Sharpie pen to "stitch" around everything. Sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa Stampin' Up ink pad.

The card is Stampin' Up cardstock and the mat is from DCWV Old World Mat Stack.

Have I mentioned yet that I love Fall, October, and Pumpkin cards? :)

Hugs! It's a GREAT day today!! Do something FUN!!

Hi Janice

I't a pretty strinking card as it is, the pumpkin really holds the eye, enything more might distract (IMO).
