Build a Jack-O-Lantern

 Building a Jack-O-Lantern, Cottage Cutz has made it so easy to create the Pumpkin in their new Cottage Cutz Pumpkin Carving Die. The Jack-O-Lantern above was made in all orange, but below. .
 I have shown you the breakdown of the Pumpkin on the die. If you start at the top left you will see a android key thing-y. . Well that is the piece of paper that can save you a lot of work. When mounted on the black die cut. . you see it is like a puzzle. It can than be glued under the jack-O-Lantern .  .and WOW!. . .  you have all your shadows in the face of the pumpkin. Cottage Cutz as just replaced eight tiny pieces of paper with two. There is no worry if all your shadows are in the correct place. Just text fit the black card stock that has the yellow and glue on the back. I highlighted the Jack-O-Lantern with Memento Tango Orange Ink and Copic Markers. Orange, Yellow and Brown #YC04, Y17, E77.
Here I used the Cottage Cutz Carved Pumpkin die on a Halloween treat box. I also used the Cottage Cutz Stamp Frame die as my frame/boarder.

Thanks  Barry
