Winter Gifts Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative

The November Paper Pumpkin Kit, called Winter Gifts, has really captured my attention.  Yes.  Today's card is another alternative idea for turning this kit into full size Christmas Cards, instead of the Christmas Gift Tags this kit was meant to create.   You can see other alternative ideas in yesterday's post, and the post previous to that post.   Today, I added some Smoky Slate and Basic Gray cardstock and added a circle background on Whisper White in Pool Party.  Then I added die cuts from my Paper Pumpkin Kit and I was done in a flash!  What a great time-saver during the Holiday Season, when time is in short supply.               

The basecard is Smoky Slate.  Then a layer of Basic Gray; then the image layer is Whisper White.  I used the largest circle from the Layering Circles to die cut  a circle from a piece of scrap paper.  Then I used Stamping Sponges and Sponge Daubers to add a circle background of Pool Party to the Whisper White layer.   

November 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternatives

The tree, deer snowflake and Poppy Parade strip are die cuts from the November Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I added a a Whisper White label stamped with a sentiment from the Kit.  Tip:  To get good ink coverage when stamping a sentiment like the one above, I've found that "huffing" on the stamp once inked gives me great coverage every time!  The snowflake has a Clear Epoxy Droplet in the center.  The sentiment banner is mounted on Dimensionals.  The deer has a small bow using the silver cord from the November Kit.
