Pumpkin Carving Ants


Hello Friends! Here is another card using a truly spectacular image from Doodle Pantry called Pumpkin Carving Ants! Isn't it adorable? I love making Halloween cards, and I decided to "scare" this one up just a tiny bit, because the pumpkin and ants are too adorable for words. Just look at everything you get with this set:


To create this card, I pulled the PRECOLORED image into my Silhouette Designer software and traced the image to create a cut outline. I then used the print and cut feature. Because it was impossible to get all the items on the ground around the pumpkin, I left those out out. I then printed the sentiment on white card stock and used a punch by Stampin' Up! to punch the shape. I distressed the sentiment with Pumpkin Pie ink, also by Stampin' Up! and black ink around the edges to give it a little frame. To get the moon, I punched a 1" circle and used it as a mask and inked the moon with Barely Banana ink. I then took the cut circle and using removable tape, placed it over the moon and distressed the entire layer with Going Gray ink. The fence, tree and witch are all cut files from Silhouette's online store. I cut the fence with gray card stock and distressed it with black ink. I cut the tree with brown card stock and also distressed it with black ink and the witch was cut with black card stock. The bat is a small punch I have in my stash. The white card stock was attached to a black card stock base and all items were adhered to the card. This is a dimensional card, although the picture doesn't really show you that.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Susan I love your Halloween card and I have to say I am feeling twinges of envy not having a Silhouette. I have a Cricut Expression, but find it lacking. Very expensive cartridges, so mine is more of a dust collector more than anything. Your layout for the card is wonderful as are all the other elements. Nicely done.
