First Pumpkin Attempt







I have come across this 3D pumpkin technique on the cricut forum and I thought it was sooooo cute so I decided i would try it for myself.



I have simply cut 10 scallop circles using my big shot, I have aged the edges then scored down the centre, I then folded them and glued them together.



For the stalk I have used some groisgrain spotty brown ribbon and for the vines I have cut some thin srtips of green card split them in half so they are thin then I have curled them with a quilling tool. The background paper is Bo Bunny and it is just stunning!!!



The example I saw was for ornaments but I thought it would look super cute on a card!!



Now I will say that the pumpkin is too heavy for the card size that I have choosen so it keeps falling down, so I will need to play around with different weight and size card blanks but for now I am happy with the result!!!



A big thanks to Big Beras Wife on the cricut forum for the inspiration!!!
