Cute Pumpkin - Crafts Beautiful October 2019

Hello blog friends!

I would like to share with you a cute moveable pumpkin card that I created for the current issue (October 2019) of Crafts Beautiful.

I have a monthly masterclass in Crafts Beautiful showing different techniques from gilding right through to kinetic cards.

For this issue I decided to come up with an adorable pumpkin so that when you pull his stalk, his arms wave up and down.

The beauty of this design is all of the items needed you will most likely have in your craft stash.

You can find the template for this cute little guy on the Crafts Beautiful website, click here to take you to the template download page.

The mechanism works by cutting out two of the tabs and two arms and then connecting them to the stalk with brads. Cut out another main body piece in white and fix to the back with foam tape making sure you leave gaps for the arms and enough room for the mechanism to work. A small top fold card blank in fixed to the back to allow the little guy to stand up.

If you don't want a moveable card, just make him up without the mechanism.

I hope you like this cute little dude and thank you for popping by. TTFN!
