Pumpkin Pie Recipe Pop Up

Here's one Pop-Up that holds 2 surprises inside: a recipe and a Pop-Up Pumpkin. Outside: stacked pumpkins. Each was cut out and adhered to the White CS using adhesive snail. "enjoy" is using Black Embossing Powder with one of the small pumpkins popped up with a dimensional. Popped up Leaves with dimensionals adorn the front of the card.

The spine of the card holds "falling" leaves that are first attached to packing tape (to provide stability) and then cut cut, strung up.Right photo: Close up of the popped up pumpkin in "enjoy".

How to make:

okay so how did you get your pumpkins in an up and down line instead of side to side. I am having so many problems with this set because I can't ink them that how you did it or when you mounted did you cut them apart? I just can't figure it all out..thanks!
