Cuttin' Up With Class Challenge #1

I am so excited! Today is the very first challenge for my new svg cut file challenge blog.
 This week's challenge is to use my simple pumpkin file in some way. Well you have seen the pumpkin step card I made and put up on my blog header. I made 2 more pumpkin projects for this challenge.

First up is a pumpkin mini album.

This is pretty simple. (especially if you received the apple mini album from CUWC)
I cut the pumpkins out of orange cardstock and put Rusty Hinge distress ink on my Cuttlebug Victorian embossing folder.  Just rub it on then emboss. I gives you great color in the recessed areas. I also took floral wire, wrapped it around a skewer and clipped it for tendrils.

Next, I have a z-fold card

I cut the cardbase at 4 1/4 by 8 1/2 then cut a blue square 3inches and another one at 3 1/2 inches. Rounded all the corners and scored at 2 1/8 inches and 4 1/4 inches.

These were really easy.
Go by Cuttin' Up with Class to download the free pumpkin file and play along with us.

OMG, these are gorgeous, girl! I had a hard time deciding, but I think I like the mini album best, simply because that inked embossing is so spectacular! ~Hugs, Cheryl
