Fall Pumpkin Card Using Cricut and SCAL
I wanted to update and let you know some things I’m cutting with my Cricut lately using SCAL, or Sure Cuts a Lot Software in conjunction with my Cricut. “SCAL” is software which allows you to cut “.svg” files available for share free on the internet, any True Type Fonts (abbreviated TTF in the file names), OR many .jpg photo files! Wow. I know. It’s just nuts. You only need the cartridge that came with your machine inserted into it, and a connection to your computer…and they walk you through all that easy peasy!
To make this card with my Cricut and SCAL, I downloaded this cut file from Cheeky Magpie called “Filigree Pumpkin“. I opened it using “import SVG” function in my Sure Cuts a Lot software, then sized it to the size of a card. I then cut the filigree portion using Core-Dinations cardstock (my fav!), and cut a “blackout shadow” of the pumpkin for the orange background. Then, I just matted, used some corner punches and a Martha Stewart punch, and finished it off with a JustRite sentiment, Nestability slide, ribbon, and gems! I wanted a little more dimension to the flourishes on the pumpkin, so I traced with a gold gel pen.
I am loving my Cricut for holiday times! I can’t wait to post some more of my projects for the holidays to share with you. If you are interested in learning more about SCAL, be sure to check out the links here or in the sidebar for their website. I hope you liked the card, and thanks for looking!
PS…I challenge you to do a web search for any holiday image in your mind you may want to cut and search for “svg cut file [name of your image]”. See what will be available to you immediately to cut!
