The original size of the small cards in the kit are the two in the front. See the one matted in pink behind them, as well as the envelope to the left and the pink envelope at the top? I changed up the card size slightly by adding a card base that I cut with the largest Framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels, and embossing it with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to complement the lively dots I'd stamped on the front of the card.
This shows the comparison in sizes a little better. See the wee star-flecked envelope at the back? That is the envelope that came with the kit. To accommodate my larger size card, I simply created envelopes with my own DSP and my Envelope Punch Board.
Let's move on to the standard-sized cards that came in the kit. The striped one on the left is the card base from the kit, while the "smile" card standing on end on the right was made with some really old one-sided DSP that Stampin' Up! used to carry. And I was saving it for SOMEthing. And here is that something! The cute stamped dots are made with one of the stamps in the kit. The sequins also came in the kit. I have LOTS of those little cuties left!
One other thing that I added to all my larger cards are the two snippets of Washi Tape toward the bottom of each of the cards. I chose Washi Tapes that matched in color to the design framing and showing under the diecut words.
The pink envelope on the right is the one that comes in the kit, while I created the blue one on the left with my Envelope Punch Board. Thus the subtle difference in looks between the envelopes.
This photo shows all supplies that come with the August Paper Pumpkin kit, with the exception of the personal Stampin' Up! Washi Tape I added to the card front. The cute pink polka dot envelope in the foreground is another of the tiny envelopes that came with the kit to match the tiny cards.
This last card shows the diecut card front, the sequins and the stamped dots that came with the kit. My additions were the patterned paper, the Washi Tape, and the Envelope Punch Board-created envelope. I also used retired Earth Elements Brads on the envelope.
