Hello again! Snow is still on our ground. The neighbor kids were sliding down the hill behind us and WE had such fun watching. They were up and down dozens of times, and played until nearly dark. Ah youth 🤗

On the home front here, I created another Paper Pumpkin Alternative using the January kit called Sending Hearts. I used minimal additional supplies.

Jan. PP Alternative Fun Fold – #1

For the front of the card I used a Floral Heart Die to cut this lacy heart from Basic White card stock. I used a Basic White strip to fussy cut an arrow. Both were adhered with liquid glue. I then colored the sentiment from the kit with a Petal Pink Stampin Blend and adhered it with dimensionals.

Jan. PP Alternative Fun Fold n- #2

I have no idea what this fold is called, I just knew I wanted to try it! The inside is one of the kits card bases, trimmed 1/8″ on the long side and scored one inch on either side of the center fold. The center fold becomes the mountain and the other two the valley folds. Adhere one side first; close card and adhere other side ~ both done with liquid glue. I stamped the very cute snail in Memento Black ink and colored him with Light Smoky Slate Stampin Blends, then covered that with Wink of Stella. I also stamped the sentiment with the same Memento Black ink.

The center heart is one provided in the kit cut down to 3 x 3 1/4. I stamped the hearts from the stamp in the kit using Petal Pink ink, then covered all the solid hearts in Wink of Stella to give it a bit of glam. I colored one of the resin hearts from the kit using Poppy Parade Stampin Blends, added it to the upper right corner over one of the hearts. I then colored the Whisper White Crinkled Ribbon with Poppy Parade Stampin Blends, tied it in a bow and adhered with a glue dot. I mounted the panel on Poppy Parade 3 x 3 3/8 with liquid glue and it was ready to go into the card. It was mounted using liquid glue in the center of the card. And voila!

Jan PP Alternative Fun Fold #3

On the envelope I stamped the XOXO in Memento black ink and called the card done…. Love it when something comes together ~ and most of it from the monthly kit!!!

A couple of things to remember when using this kind of fold… The center panel must be no taller than the dimension from the fold to the edge of the DSP on the bottom of the card – or it will stick out beyond the top of the card… ask me how I know that!
