Boy, am I having fun with the Paper Pumpkin kit I just received a few days ago!
The kit provides enough materials to create eight darling cards -- and much, much MORE!
First of all, the next two photos picture my take on the two styles of cards created from the kit. I say my take because I didn't use any of the ribbon or baker's twine. I never even touched those two items, but just tucked them away for future projects.
This first card is extra adorable in that it is a trifold card.
The top layer is the delicately die cut feather-y front in white.
When you flip open that layer,
underneath you will find a really cool purple-y watercolor look layer.
Finally, lift the last layer to discover the inside of the card.
This next card features a beautifully eyelet-edge die cut
through the Crumb Cake colored cardstock,
which shows the white inside under the lacy holes.
When I said that I had materials left over for lots MORE, I really meant it. No more card bases or envelopes, but I had so many extra diecut pieces, which included more labels, feathers in additional colors, as well as many foliage accents in coordinating colors.
Lately I have been randomly sliding out a Paper Pumpkin box containing unfinished projects and finishing them up in some way. The box I slid out this time included five striped card bases. I cut these bases down to a square 4 1/4". I then took some of my leftovers from the October kit to churn out five additional cards. And I STILL have a lot of these pieces left! Woo hoo!
Who doesn't need a plethora of birthday and thank you cards? With that in mind, I created three birthday and two thank you cards using pieces of assorted colors. I even had six of the adhesive-backed sequins left from the kit, so five of them were put to use on these cards:
Every single items I used on these five cards -- with the exception of the card bases themselves -- were leftovers from the October Paper Pumpkin kit. And I still have lots more stashed away for future projects!
I should mention that the sentiments that I used on my five extra cards came from the Beautiful Bouquet set, found on page 111 of the Annual Catalog.
