Give Thanks Pumpkin Card

Hi, Crafty Friends!! Creative Team Member, Mitsyana Wright, here. It’s a new month and I’m not going to lie, I’m missing Halloween already.  It’s ok, I have lots to look forward to and lots to be thankful for. And speaking of thankful… Today, I’m bringing you this Give Thanks, Pumpkin Card.

Let me show you how I made it…

Here are the supplies you need:

  • Pumpkin Mini Album (here in the Silhouette Store)
  • Give Thanks (here in the Silhouette Store)
  • Patterned Cardstock (Autumn Leaves Stack- DCWV)
  • Xyron Creative Station
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Vintage Photo
  • Hemp Twine
  • Glue Pen

I used Lori Whitlock’s Pumpkin Mini Album to create my card base.

I opened the SVG file using my ecal software.

Then “UNGROUP”ed the holes from that are in the pumpkin base and files.

Then, I cut and pasted the window base onto a new page.

I made a mirror image then slightly had them overlap at the center. Then I highlighted the whole and “WELDED” the two pumpkins together.

Once the welded pumpkins were cut, I used my bone folder to crease my card.

Then I die cut the panel pieces, stem, and accessories that come with the file.

Next, I ran the patterned paper through my Xyron Creative Station Lite. Then I inked up the edges with Tim Holtz’ in Vintage Photo. Then All I simply did was peel and stick! Easy-Peasy!!

I also used Lori Whitlock’s Give Thanks Title for my cards sentiment.

I sized it to fit the pumpkin cover in my ecal software. Then opened a new window and cut and pasted it there.

After cutting these words out, I left them in their negative space and inked the edges. Keeping them in the negative space helps to reduce bends and tears.

I used a glue pen to attached my sentiment onto the front cover.

Then, I  added the leaves and button. I  fastened them together with hemp twine.

I also used a micron pen to add details to the words and swirls for a little definition.

And here is my finished card…

Now, it’s ready to give to someone I am very thankful for…

It’s so hard to choose!! I’m going to have to make more!! There are too many people I am incredibly thankful for! I guess that is a good problem to have!

Hope you all enjoyed my project for today!! See you soon!!

Merge and weld worked!
The little cut outs add to the dimension…thanks ever so much!

GranTry highlighting the whole card the clicking “Merge” before “welding”. Hope this helps.

Love this idea…have just cut 4
However, when I weld using my cameo the “cut outs” in the stem and vine disappear.
Suggestion?
