Hello! On Thursday I shared a card made using the March Paper Pumpkin. To see that post go here. Today I want to explore the March Paper Pumpkin a little further. These are the cards made pretty much according to the directions for this kit.
These vintage look cards and envelopes are so striking. They are perfect for Paper Pumpkin's 5th anniversary.
Of course there are those who like to think outside the box and make up new projects using the pieces of the kit. I decided to make 3 cards do just that.
This card has a base of Lemon Lime Twist. There are several layers. The Soft Suede layer is 3 3/4 x 5. Add a layer of Whisper White, 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. The next layer is from the inside of one of the envelopes. It measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. Stamp the sentiment from the kit stamp set in Early Espresso. Add with dimensionals. Add leaves and flowers gluing some down and some mounted on dimensionals. Add pearls in the center of the circles.
For this card, the base is Thick Very Vanilla 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. Stamp around the outer edges of the card front in Soft Suede using the leaves from the kit stamp set. Again, there are several layers. The So Saffron layer measures 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. The Soft Suede layer is 3 1/8 x 4 5/8. The printed layer from the kit is cut at 3 x 4 1/2. I used the Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon with this card. The banner is part of the kit. The flower is also from the kit. The leaves are stamped in Soft Suede onto Old Olive and cut out. Add a bow with a rolled up glue dot to the front. I think this one is my favorite!
This card has a base of Crumb Cake 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Fold at 4 1/4. The layer is from the inside of an envelope. It measures 3 1/2 x 4 1/2. The top of an envelope was added to the front of the card. Tie the linen thread from the kit around twice and tie in a bow. I used some of the wooden elements that were included in the kit as a free gift. Lay them on the ink pad and gently press to color. Add the wooden elements along with punch outs from the kit. The Happy Birthday is part of the kit stamp set. Stamp in Lemon Lime Twist and trim around the words. Finish with a few of the pearls from the kit.
I hope these projects will be a jumping off point for you to try alternate cards from this kit. Here is the video for the March kit.
