My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 95 It's Picking Time!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Are you ready for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Our challenge this week is "It's Picking Time". Our design team sister Charlotte asked us to include an apple or a pumpkin on our project.
Cricut Cartridge: Working in Cricut Craft Room
Freshly Picked - Looking through this neglected cartridge, I found this cute pumpkin featured on page 68. You will notice the card has a bit of shape rather than a rectangle. Using the Layers2/Shadow key and cut size 5.25", I welded two of the shapes to make the card base. The patterned designer papers are cut at 5" using the main and main/shadow keys. The pumpkin and leaf are cut 5" using the layers key. Sorry I did not record the size of the green background mat.
I thought the pumpkin sign was just too cute not to use. It is cut at 2.75".
Page 49 -  for sale is cut 1.50".
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots - Leaf,  Divine Swirls - Pumpkin.
Other Supplies:
Brads and raffia bow are from my stash. Pop-dots used on the pumpkin and for sale sign.
Patterned papers are K&Company Tim Coffey Halloween & Fall. Solid papers DCWV.

I had fun playing with this Cricut cartridge. It also has a seeds packet and a frame cut on the pumpkin page. For a project that I made last year using the apple frame from this same cartridge, please click here.
