Here's the carriage so far. I used orange card stock to match the orange print paper. The pumpkin overlays were cut from Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale- orange for the pumpkin and purple and gold for the lid. The carriage base is Bo Bunny purple dot and the carriage overlays are from An Eerie Tale.
|Finished Carriage- vines still need to be added to the base.|
|Assembled carriage base with vellum window.|

The carriage embellishments are simple-small pearls, buttons, crystals and a fleur de lys punched from card stock and painted with gold craft paint. The panels on either side of the lanterns contain a pearl flourish and the panel above the lanterns are decorated with crystal "shaved ice" from the craft store. Ranger's Liquid Pearls was used to embellish around the carriage window. The wheels still need to be added. The wheels are thick and each wheel is cut 12 times, then glued together. Since the wheels have to support the weight of the carriage, I glued them together with Hard Coat Mod Podge and then coverd the finished wheel with Mod Podge. This made the wheels very hard and sturdy.
|Embellished carriage, still needs more work.|
