March Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card Idea

  • April Paper Pumpkin Kit Assembly Video - Spoiler Alert

  • Retiring Products List Coming April 22, 2020

March Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card

I'm a little late getting into my March Paper Pumpkin Kit this month.  I love making alternative card ideas out of my Paper Pumpkin kits.  The March Paper Pumpkin Kit is such a beautiful kit that it doesn't take much to come up with great ideas for using it.  I did add die cuts using the Christmas Layers Dies, a carry over set from the Holiday catalog.  I also used the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder to add even more texture to this card.  I can't wait for finish the cards in the March kit, as it includes an extra stamp set giving me even more options to make cards with.  Also, I know I'll receive the April kit in a few days and I'm really looking forward to a new kit that is sure to keep me stamping during the self-quarantine. The new April kit assembly video has already been release.  I've included it below.

The basecard for today's Paper Pumpkin Kit alternative card is Petal Pink.  Then a layer of Grapefruit Grove.  One side of the Grapefruit grow is dry embossed with the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Then a Copper Foil die cut using the Christmas Layers Dies is layered under a Petal Pink die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  One of the flower die cuts from the March Paper Pumpkin kit is mounted on Dimensionals and adhered to the front of the Petal Pink label.

I stamped the sentiment from one of the Paper Pumpkin Kit stamp sets in Grapefruit Grove onto a Very Vanilla layer, matted with a piece of Grapefruit Grove.  I die cut additional Copper Foil pieces using the Christmas Layers Dies, and added a 3/8" Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim ribbon down the center of the card.  I love Paper Pumpkin Kits for fast, easy card creations.  They are great for travelling, as well as fun to put together with friends.

Spoiler Alert:  If you want a sneak peek at the April Paper Pumpkin Kit, which will hit your mail box in the next few days, if it hasn't done so already, take a look at the video below.  

Let's keep stampin' as we think of others who would love to know you're thinking of them.  Sending handmade cards is a great way to stay in touch when you can't be with distant loved ones and your cards will be greatly appreciated during these times.
