So, I really wanted to make a shaped circle card--not something I do very often. This being the start of September and the official beginning of Pumpkin Spice season, I wanted to make a shaped pumpkin card. My first attempt ended looking more like an orange so I hope Jaydee doesn't mind that my card uses an enlongated circle....
OK, so it's actually an oval but what is an oval really? Just a circle stretched out! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I used my largest Oval Framelit to cut the pumpkin from Naturals Ivory [retired & hoarded] cardstock. I cut another, smaller oval and popped it up with dimensionals. I sponged all the edges with Sahara Sand ink to add shading and dimension.
The pumpkin stem was cut with the tree stump die from the Thoughtful Branches set. The leaves were cut from Copper Foil paper and Always Artichoke cardstock with the leaf die from Flourish Thinlit dies. The twine is some [retired] Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine. Lastly the sentiment is from the Acorny Thank You stamp set and punched out with the Washi Label punch.
I really like the way my pumpkin shaped card turned out. Although, I must admit, I didn't finish the inside because I have no idea who I will send it to! I'm going to wait for just the right moment.
But don't wait to go check out the rest of my pals on the Paper Players design team. I know they have lots of circular inspiration for you! If you want to play along with our challenge, just remember that it closes on Friday, September 9 at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
