Today I am preparing for my Paper Pumpkin class that is Friday. The kit is very easy to put together as is. I wanted to jazz up the card with the flowers in the middle and break up all the flower with them on the outside. I made the envelopes for the stamp set and have the 1″ square for each of my subscribers (as shown in the July paper pumpkin post).
Here are my alternates.
I used the wonderful Stitched Seasons Framelits and cut the center of the card front. I then attached a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 panel of Blackberry Bliss to the back of the card front. I then cut 3 Happy Birthday Thinits and stacked them. I used the new upcoming (in the Holiday catalog) Frost white shimmer paint to give some sparkle to the sentiment. I added a few Flirty Flamingo swirls (also from the Stitched Seasons Framelits) and then rhinestones for added interest.
Next I made a separate card base. Cut a BlackBerry Bliss to 5 3/8 by 4 1/8. Ran it through my big shot with the Climbing Vines embossing folder and adhered it to the card front. I used the cut out card front from the card above. Added the sentiment from the paper pumpkin kit with some Silver Metallic Thread behind.
For the other card (with the flowers in the center), I added a butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Thinlets, once with vellum then with Blackberry Bliss. I used the new upcoming (in the Holiday catalog) Champaign Mist shimmer paint to give some sparkle to the butterfly.
That’s it. Contact me if you have any questions.
