Do you love working with SVG files? As a graphic designer, I love creating SVG files, and I will be sharing projects, including SVG files, with you twice a month. Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I have a Pumpkin Mandala to share with you as a part of the CutCardStock design team.

Today I am using an SVG file to create a Pumpkin Mandala Card. This design works well for Halloween, Fall, or Thanksgiving. The mandala for a card, but you could make it larger for a beautiful decor piece. Or just framing the card would be nice too.

card stock used

CutCardStock is featuring orange, brown, and gold card stocks this month. I am using Cosmic Orange and Stardream Metallic Card Stock in Bronze. I really like the iridescent quality of the Stardream card stocks.

materials used

The image above shows the materials I worked with for this card. I used Distress Oxide to add color to the edge of the pumpkin mandala and the card. After gluing, I added rhinestones that have a rainbow coloring into the outer circles.
