I have to thank Andrea Sherman, a fellow Close To My Heart consultant, for this fabulous project! Please check out her blog, girlpluspaper.blogspot.com, where she has posted a step-by-step tutorial for the shorter, round pumpkin. For the taller pumpkin, I simply adapted her instructions as follows:
On page 33 of your Art Philosophy image booklet you'll find the "Oval 2" image. Press "decorative layer" and "shift" and then set your Cricut to cut the oval at 3". You will need to cut 5. I cut the six pointed flower ("Flower 7 p.39) at just 3" for this pumpkin and used a scrap of B&T from the Oliva paper packet. I picked up some flickering led votive candles from the Halloween section at Wal-Mart to complete the project! Here's a complete list of the materials I used:
- 2 sheets (12"x12") of Sunset cardstock from Summer Cardstock Collection (1 sheet per pumpkin)
- 6"x6" scrap of olive background & texture paper from Mayberry for short pumpkin top and stalk
- 6"x6" scrap of olive background & texture paper from Oliva for the tall pumpkin top and stalk
- Z679 Liquid Glass to glue it all together!
