SVGCuts Pumpkin Carriage for Bitten By the Bug 2's Fall Challenge

Happy Autumn!  I just love this season and especially the month of October.  When it came time to create a project for this theme, Feels Like Fall. I was super excited and still on a roll from my recent 3-D projects.  I love creating these objects d' art.  I hope they bring as much joy as I experience making them.  I chose this project from SVGCuts Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit.  You don't have to go this grand, but I hope to inspire you to create an Autumn Project with your Cricut and enter the Bitten By the Bug 2 Feel Like Fall Challenge.

Some of the details,  I used a flower button for the door "handle".  The lantern came together very easily but next time I will use double sided paper.  I tried to chalk the inside but the foil paper had a very glossy back side and didn't take the ink very well.  I added a row of orange gems below the door.

In this photo you can see the metallic gem stickers I added to the platform.  I don't think I did the platform just right but the wheels covered it.  I added orange gems above the door too.

On the ends of the platform, I added flowers.  It's hard to see but I used a dark green metallic paper as my accent paper.  There were some cuts for covering the platform and some of the edges. Notice the pumpkin in the paper print.

The back side.

The metallic dark green papers is more visible in the close up view of the back side.  I also used it on the wheels.

One more angled view.

The opposite end of the platform.  

I inserted tea lights inside the carriage. It was really pretty but hard to photograph.

Y'all I just have to say, I was checking out my products I used to compile the list below.  This patterned paper is from 2010!!! 10 year old paper that has now been turned into a most beautiful creation.  I know my craft room is packed full...but proof I use it up it this project!
