Pumpkin Invites

Over the weekend my friend Patti needed a little help with some invites - a Couples Costume Bridal Shower to be exact! So we came up with these pumpkins. We cut them out using the Cricut. Then printed the words on with an Inkjet printer. I took Orange ink and sponged curves on them to give them some depth. This is a tester for the green ink for the stem - but it shows you what it looked like without the orange lines sponged on below:
We realized that we forgot where they are registered so we made a crystal ball out of green paper and the ball we cut out of velum paper. On a laser printer we printed off the information for the registry.
Marker in machine - we outlined them with green ink first - gives them an edge.

A whole sheet of them!

While Patti's machine was cutting pumpkins and crystal balls, mine was cutting 4 colors of paper confetti - white skeletons, orange pumpkins, black spiders, and purple moons and stars - all about an inch big - took all day! (I had the settings too slow!)

Here are just a few of them:
