I am using this cute pumpkin as one of my Make & Takes at my Oct. SU Hostess Club party. I thought it would be a cute idea for a Thanksgiving Dinner place card. It really is a tag like card, but with the name tag I am sure it qualifies for this weeks F4A191 Tag-A-Licious Challenge by Wendy :-)
BTW, I cut my pumpkin pie CS 8" x 4 1/4" scoring at 4". I folded the CS and then die cut using my largest Nestie circle die. Just position the die above your fold so your 2 layers remain connected.
Then I dry EB the pumpkin shape CS using my Big Shot and Woodgrain EB folder. Opening the CS and EB 1/2 at a time. Worked great.
Gently Falling is a 2-Step SU Stamp Set. I sponged the C. Curry, Pumpkin P. and then the Poppy Parade onto the solid stamps using my sponge daubers and then stamped onto V. Vanilla CS. Then stamped each image with the lined images in the set. Then I cut out with my papersnips and popped up on the card.
I dry EB a piece of C. Chip CS with the woodgrain EB folder and hand cut the stem attaching to the back of the pumpkin pie CS with sticky strip. I will probably try attaching to the front the next time as the leaves pretty much cover up where you would attach.
Sorry about the long description, but I do not blog. This really is a fun, fun project and could be for Halloween or Thanksgiving.
Enjoy and Thanks Bonnie and Wendy for your inspiration.

I love your version, Nancy! Just a hint...You can fold the pumpkin and emboss it all together and stick the stem in at the same time. Saved this group a lot of time. There were 10 so I was shaving time wherever I could. I'm going to have to try it with the Gently Falling leaves. They're beautiful! Have fun!
