The challenge (and free pattern) over at 365 Cards today is to use their pumpkin template on a card.
I decided to enlarge it a bit and make my card out of the pumpkin.
I don't get into Halloween, but I do like pumpkins and other fall looking items!
I cut the pumpkin (on a fold so it opens into a card) from orange paper and used colored pencils to add dimension to it. Then I embossed the whole thing using the swirls embossing folder. I used brown ink and brushed over it, just to make the swirls "pop" a little. Cut out a stem, leaf, and the face parts and wa-la you have a cute little pumpkin face.
