After our pumpkin carving party, I needed to send prizes to winners of our carving contest. I decided to whip up some quick personalized cards to tuck the prizes into.
I began by printing out photos of the winning pumpkins. Each pumpkin measured about one inch high.
Then I placed each pumpkin onto orange card stock and traced the outline of the face with a ballpoint pen. The sharpness of the pen left an imprint of the pumpkin's face on the card stock.
I used a marker to go over the lines of the face...
... and then I cut the pumpkins out along with some stem pieces made from green card stock.
I cut out some black ovals about the width of each pumpkin.
Then I attached the shapes to the lower right-hand corner of some cards. I used a marker to add the words, "I won!" next to the pumpkins.
Using self-adhesive photo corners, I attached the prize gift cards to the inside of each card and wrote a simple explanation on the inside using a marker.
Now I just need to send them out to the winners! I think they will be surprised to get a card with their very own pumpkins on the front -- what a fun surprise!
