Sometimes when we make our Paper Pumpkin kits, there are left overs, remains, pieces. Yesterday I was doing a little tidying (and boy did it need it!) and came across the November PP box. Inside were some parts to the kit, not many, but my mind clicked and I made one more Christmas card. Here it is…
Recognize those flowers? I really like how this turned out… Crumb Cake card base & layer, ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP, Square Vellum Doilies, the flowers, Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread from the kit, Whisper White banner and the foil sentiment from the kit ~ three major items from the kit made this card! I’m pleased as punch. 😏
I began with the Crumb Cake card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. I had another piece of Crumb Cake card stock handy (4 x 5 1/4) and ran it through the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it with liquid glue to the card front. Next I took one of the papers in ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP and cut it to a bit larger than the Square Vellum Doily (3 1/4 square). I adhered the vellum to the paper with Stampin Seal. Next I added the two flowers left over from the November Paper Pumpkin kit – on dimensionals, and covered just the flower in Wink of Stella. Between them is a several looped bow using the Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread from the kit, adhered with a glue dot. I cut a Whisper White banner 5/8 x about 4 3/4 and trimmed the ends with the Banner Pick a Punch. To this I added the foil sentiment piece – again from the November PP kit – with tiny dots of liquid glue. The banner was adhered to the flowers with liquid glue. This whole 3 1/4″ square was adhered to the Crumb Cake card with dimensionals – and the front was complete. OH! I did add three Wonderful Gems to the banner :}
Although I forgot to take a picture (and the card is mailed already!) for the inside, I had a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 stamped in Just Jade ink with a portion of one of the sentiments from the Joy to the World stamp set from the November Paper Pumpkin kit. This was adhered with liquid glue to the inside of the card. For the envelope, I simply took another piece of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP (2 1/2 x 6) and adhered it to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. I stamped the word ‘Joy’ from the Joy to the World stamp set in Just Jade ink and the card/ envelope were done.
The December Paper Pumpkin kit arrived in my mailbox yesterday and I can’t wait to work on it. Paper Pumpkin is just full of surprises ~ sometimes cards to put together, sometimes boxes or bags. Stampin’ Up! is very creative in all their kits and I encourage you to try it. You don’t necessarily have to purchase a full year, try a month or three month membership. The January Paper Pumpkin kit is available to order through Jan 10, 2021, so think about it, just not too long! Below are more details about that kit.
