The Cutest Pumpkin

For this week’s TCP Tuesday challenge, Julie is challenging us to make a seasonal shaped card. I went with a traditional pumpkin shaped card using a card base I cut with my Silhouette and some decorative layers to dress it up.  Because I cut it with my Silhouette, it also works for this week's Cameo Spotlight challenge to create a Halloween themed project.

I cut the pumpkin card a few different times from different papers so that I could mix and match the layers on my design. The base is made from orange cardstock, then layered with a tan piece to get the tan color for the stem. I adhered a chevron patterned piece to the pumpkin, then for a rounded, dimensional look, I added chevron patterned oval using foam tape.

Once the pumpkin was assembled, I attached one of the cut out Jack-o-lantern faces to the center oval, then added a green button, tied with twine to the bottom of the stem. I was thinking it would look like a leaf . . . I wrapped the ends of the twine around my paper piercing tool for a twisty detail. The “you’re the cutest pumpkin in the patch” sentiment from the Hello Pumpkin set is stamped in black ink on an orange notch-ended strip and adhered to the card.
