Handmade Halloween Cards - Toothy Pumpkin

To make this card you will need:

  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Sickly green card paper (15 x 15cm)
  • Peach card paper (15 x 15cm)
  • 2 green adhesive gems (I used gems 2mm thick)
  • Black card paper (14.5 x 14.5 cm)
  • Double sided tape
  • Black gel pen 
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick) 

I have set up and online shop - CRAFT MAGIC ONLINE SHOP- on my blog (top right corner). You can now purchase many crafting supplies right here. The shop is powered by Amazon, so you would be making the purchase through Amazon. I have just selected (and sorted into various categories) crafting products that Amazon sells. My blog's shop is divided into 2 parts; one offers paper crafting and scrapbooking supplies and the other one is for crafty kids and offers variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children.


Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take a green card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. Take the black card paper (14.5 x 14.5 cm), cut its edges to create an uneven cut border (as shown in the Halloween Spider card in previous posting) and attach it to the green card using double sided tape. Then take the peach card paper, draw the pumpkin on it (size 13 width x 10 cm height + 2 cm long stalk) and cut it out including the holes for the eyes, nose and toothy smile. Use a craft knife to cut out the holes in the pumpkin, however if you do not have it, you can use nail scissors for the fiddly bits instead. Draw black lines on the pumpkin using black gel pen (follow the picture as a guidance) and attach the finished pumpkin to the black card using foam pads. Remember to add 2 green adhesive gems as eyes.

If you want an easier design for the pumpkin's eyes and nose, just draw 1 triangle for the nose and one triangle (2x) for each eye instead.

See further bellow a reminder on how to make an uneven cut border. 

Bellow is a reminder on how to make an uneven cut border. I copied this part from my previous posting of Halloween Spider Card, so the shape of the black card in the picture bellow is different to what you need for the pumpkin card, not to confuse you. To make the pumpkin card cut the edges of the 14.5 x 14.5 cm black square card, just apply the same technique as used previously on the black stripes for the Halloween Spider card.   

A                             B                              C
Cut irregular wavy shape into the edge of the card paper (A). Then cut in randomly irregular triangle shapes (B). And the uneven cut edge for the card is done (C). See picture above.

I made another Halloween Pumpkin card using orange card paper for the pumpkin. Here are some pictures. 

In my next posting I will show you how to make a Halloween Ghost card (including flying bats, ruins of a castle and a full moon).
