When I made these decorated white pumpkins, I went ahead and layered the vinyl. Check out the photo tutorial below.
Cricut Happy Hauntings Shape Cartridge and my trusty Gypsy. I used the Gypsy to weld the words and also then to weld the shadows. The files will be available at the bottom of the post for download later today. I used orange, black and cotton colored vinyl from Expressions Vinyl (click HERE to order). Why "cotton" colored instead of white? Well, in real life,the cotton matches the color of the pumpkins better, although the photos don't show that.
I cut my vinyl out using the blade at 3, pressure and speed at 3 also - this gives the vinyl a "kiss cut", which means the vinyl is cut but the backing is not. This makes it much easier to lift off the images and letters.
Then, I took away all the vinyl parts that I would not need so I ended up with these:
Here's the end result!
Interestingly enough, I found these easier to apply than the solid shape items I made two days ago (the orange pumpkins in the photo below- click HERE if you missed that post). I have no idea why that is but they went on a lot easier!
I placed both sets of pumpkins onto my hay bale at the front door - easy decorating!
I have a different Christmas-y post over on Everyday Cricut so be sure and head over there!
Gypsy files will be available later today.
