Autumn Pumpkin

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. Where did this year go? I have been playing with the Cricut Explore for another Thanksgiving card. There are so many neat features on the machine that I have been wanting to try. This card uses the slice/weld features which is one of those new techniques for me. Card is 5" x 6 1/2" cream cardstock. I used papers from a K&Company pad.

Cricut Cartridges:
Pumpkin Carvings - Pumpkin 49 is cut 3.5" high. After adding a basic circle shape on the pumpkin to the size that looked ok, I used the slice feature. This cut the circle out of the pumpkin. I added a black out of the original pumpkin from the brown paper.
Wildcard - The word Autumn was sized to fit inside the open area yet touching in a couple of places so it could be welded to the pumpkin. 
Thanksgiving - Harvest Blessings was cut 4.22" wide x 1.62" high. I used only the word Blessings for this project.
Classroom Oct-Nov - Happy Thanksgiving is cut 4.50" wide. This is used inside the card.
For more interest to the pumpkin, I added Gelly Roll pen doodles and a pretty crinkle ribbon bow from Little Scrap Pieces which I won recently. Thank you so much Karen for the pretty ribbons! Turkey is pop-dotted on a piece of burlap.

Martha Stewart Swirling Lace edge punch is used on the brown paper.
