This week at BBTB2 our lovely and talented Glenda has asked us to celebrate Fall by using a pumpkin in our project. The catch? NO HALLOWEEN PUMPKINS. I'm always avoiding the Disney carts because of the tiny detailed cuts, but the fablous pumpkin and vines on Happily Ever After called to me so I decided to give it a go. I welded the shadow to the shadow of "Give Thanks" from Phrases and went from there. Because my Cricut blades are terribly dull and I haven't been able to find replacements for awhile, I cut this pretty large. (I'm thinkin' 4" for each, but I almost never pay attention to that.) Oops! Too large for a card, in fact so this project hasn't found it's final resting place. I was going to attach a ribbon for a door hanger, but I'm leaning towards matting and framing it. As usual, I was late in finishing it so for now, it is what it is.
Here's the dimension shot. I intended one more layer so I could pop the "T", "a", and "s" in "Thanks" (which were trimmed from the entire phrase by hand) but my crap blade and non sticky mat screwed up the last pumpkin shadow I would have needed to do that, so I glued the plaid letters flat. I shadowed the pumpkin and leaves a bit with Copics and did a little doodling and called it done enough to submit. LOL I'm telling you, I really am struggling with the crafting these days. Hope I can snap out of it. My teamies are on the ball with fabulous projects, so be sure and stop by BBTB2 and have a look see. Can't wait to see what you have in mind, too, but remember to follow the rules and make your Cricut cut pumpkin NON HALLOWEEN or it will vanish without a trace from the Linky.
