2014-11-26; Pumpkin stand & ATC


Today’s sample is something that can be quickly made and used on your Thanksgiving table. It can either be just a decoration as shown here or be the place card for your guests with their name added to the front rather than a sentiment.

It starts out as a really plain circle however; once embossed, shaded and layered with die cut leaves magic happens and it turned into a lovely pumpkin.

At this side view you can see that a stand was added. Basically it’s just a piece of card stock folded in half with a brace included so that the stand won’t collapse under the weight of the pumpkin. I normally just use a triangle shape for the stand however; with this round shape a rectangle was the way to go.

This close up of the leaves shows a set by Sizzix that I’ve had for literally years and never used. It is called Floral Botanical and had 3 Sizzlits dies. Besides the lovely leaves (which I don’t know why I never used before; it has a nice layered flower.

And another angle of the front.

I also made an atc with a pumpkin which could also be used as a place card at your table. Just add the same stand as described as shown on the back of the pumpkin in a smaller scale.

And the two projects together…

I’m not even close to being ready for Thanksgiving dinner. Rushing around in circles now trying to get everything done!
