Birthday 3-D Pumpkin

Just a quick post because I forgot to set this up at a reasonable time!!!  My cousin Carl celebrated his birthday mid-September, but came up from D.C. to CT last weekend, so I was able to give him his birthday 'card' - if you can call it that!

I saw this pumpkin on Aly's blog through Tip Junkie and knew I wanted to make it for him.

I punched out about 10 orange scallop circles and stamped them with a Hero Arts plaid stamp.  Then I folded each of the circles in half and glued them to one another.  Before gluing the last two together, I cut out a piece of felt for the stem and put it in the middle.

I then cut out some Sizzix leaves and stamped them with a leaf stamp. I attached them to some ribbon, attached to the stem and made a Sizzix label with a PTI sentiment.

I also gave him some notecards I made using some fall stickers and a few take-out boxes with pumpkins cut out - so a nice fall theme!

Still not feeling 100%. Went to the Dr. and he told me the virus would have to work it's way out itself.  (Seriously? I wanted some drugs!!).  So, I'll give it a few more days.  Then I gotta get back to working out!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Maria, What an awesome card!!
I'm sure your cousin loved it!
I hope you feel better soon!!Too bad, there aren't any drug for viruses!! You just have to treat you symptoms. (Sorry, it's the nurse in me!!)

Um, yeah, doc, I know I have a virus. Do you think I dragged myself out of bed just to have you confirm that? Now hand over the good stuff!
