Here is an A2 sized pumpkin card made out of oval shapes from the Wild Card cartridge. I used the oval liner on page 39 and hid the contour line inside the oval frame using Design Studio. I cut three separate ovals at 3 inches. I also welded three 3 inch ovals together to create a pumpkin shape. I used a tape runner to adhere the welded pumpkin shape to the card base and then glued the left and right ovals on top, saving the middle oval for last which is adhered with foam tape to raise it up for dimension. The welded pumpkin shape is not necessary to make a pumpkin out of individual ovals. I just wanted the extra layer, plus it made it easier for me to just lay the individual ovals on top based on the welded “template”.
For the inside of the card, I welded three 1 inch ovals together to achieve the small pumpkin. Click here for a Design Studio screen shot showing the ovals used for this card. I experimented with different sizes (1, 2, and 3 inches). You can see the individual ovals colored in orange. The welded ovals are clear but have a darker line around the shape. This darker line shows you how it will cut in preview mode. I only used some of the shapes so I have a few extra for other cards.
The pumpkin on the front of the card is embellished with “stitches” using a white gel pen. The pumpkin stem is from Wild Card’s Halloween Jack-O-Lantern card on page 68. I cut two sizes at 2 and 4 inches. I trimmed the stem for the larger pumpkin with scissors (out of necessity). It was going off the card so I trimmed it a bit :). The stem has come in handy for my 3-D pumpkins, Halloween card, and now this Thanksgiving card. The lovely green patterned card stock is from Paper Studio’s Natural Botanical stack. The light orange card stock is from Colorbok which can be purchase at Wal-mart in a 12×12 (30 page) pastels pad for $5.00. The ribbon is from American Crafts. The inside “Give Thanks” sentiment is cut from Designer’s Calendar at 1.5 inches.
Thanks for looking!
