This card making is an awesome idea. I get updates from www.crafts’ncoffee.com
and this was a part of it in the Pumpkin craft
ideas and I wanted to share it. I would love to make this for a friend in the hospital. I think it would cheer her right up. Thank you, CnC and Patty Schaffer
Get ready to pick your perfect pumpkin craft this week, as I’m sharing pumpkin crafts all week long. I worried about rushing the season with the BOO Marquee Lights I featured on Friday, but now that it’s after Labor Day, it’s open season for fall and Halloween crafts. I’m starting with this handmade Halloween card from Patty Schaffer. She’s used wool roving to felt a sweet little jack-‘o-lantern, creating a dimensional, one-of-a-kind Halloween card. Tune in each day this week for more pumpkin crafts from your favorite designers!
1. Fold in half an 8-½” x 5” piece of paper, creating a 4-¼” wide by 5” high card.
2. Cut a 1-½” x 5” paper strip. Cut a scallop edge along one 5” side. (Patty used a paper punch for this, but you can also cut the edge with scissors.) Adhere the scalloped strip to the front of the card, flush with the fold.
3. Cut the 2” foam ball in half with the serrated knife. Use a wooden skewer to carve sections into one half ball; the sections can be uneven, just like on a real pumpkin.
