Fold-over wreath card using December 2023 All the Best Paper Pumpkin Kit


  • Paper Pumpkin December 2023 All the Best Kit Alternative Idea
  • Two Joining Bonuses during Sale-A-Bration; until 29 February 2024
  • Sweet Springtime February 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit with a unique box to match the season

I'm excited to share with you a new-to-me fold-over wreath card one of my customers brought to my attention recently.  It uses the elements from the December 2023 All the Best Paper Pumpkin Kit, the Love of Spring Dies Add on that works with not only this kit but also the January, February and March Paper Pumpkin Kits, and additional dies from Stylish Shapes and Notes of Nature.  It also uses the Crosshatch Design Embossing Folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders Set to emboss the card front, a Gold and Vanilla 3/8" Satin Edged Ribbon Bow, plus Brushed Brass Butterflies accent.   It showcases an alternative idea for using elements from the All the Best Paper Pumpkin Kit that you'll love trying yourself.  The inspiration for this card came from the talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Tami White, whose blog includes a helpful video tutorial for creating this card.

As with all Paper Pumpkin Kits, you'll enjoy creating the cards just as they are designed.  And, you'll love stretching your creativity by using the elements in the kit to customize a design that meets your need.  The good news is that if you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, refills for the All the Best Paper Pumpkin Kit are still available.  Order item #164428 | $11.50 USD for the All the Best Paper Pumpkin Refill.  With the launch of Sale-A-Bration 2024, from now until February 29, for each $50 or $100 you spend, you can select Free items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  Paper Pumpkin subscriptions count towards your order total.   

Alternative card idea for using the December 2023 All the Best Paper Pumpkin Kit

    The basecard for today's card is Thich Basic White Cardstock cut to 5-1/4" X 5-1/4", Scored at 2-5/8". I used the Crosshatch Design Embossing Folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders Pack and Dry Embossed the front half of my basecard.  I used the second to the largest circle from Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut a circle in the center of the Thick Basic White Basecard.   I used the two largest circles from the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a circular frame for mounting my floral pieces.

    Next, I selected curved preprinted floral die cuts from the All the Best Paper Pumpkin Kit to create my wreath.  I also used the leaves die from the Love of Spring Die and the leaves dies from the Note of Nature dies to create Gold Foil leaves to accent the outside of my florals.  I mounted the florals and leaves onto the circle fame using Mini Dimensionals to hold them in place.  Once the florals were attached to the frame, I attached the wreath to my folded base card. 

    I used the Love sentiment from the Love of Spring Dies and die cut a piece of Gold Foil Sheet to create a sentiment.  I added an Adhesive Sheet to the back of my Gold Foil Sheet before die cutting, and then removed the adhesive backing before adding the sentiment to my card.  Finally, I added a bow of Gold and Vanilla 3/8" Satin Edged Ribbon, and a few Brushed Brass Butterflies as accents to my card front adding a bit of elegance to the card.
