Almost every month, my Paper Pumpkin kit contains very cool stamps, and most of the time a large focal point stamp, such as the trio of flowers in this card.

Cute and very sketchy looking, it was perfect for the main image on a fun card.

Once the card is assembled, it boasts a modest amount of dimension, 
probably requiring extra postage to mail. Or maybe not. Hmmm.

The swirly cirrcular diecut makes a perfect landing place for the flowers.

Have you tried the Gingham Embossing Folder? Cute design!

Hopefully you have your Paper Pumpkin kit handy, 'cause following is a tutorial on how to recreate this cheery card.

White cardstock
Black cardstock
Poppy Parade cardstock

Stamps from Beyond the Horizon Paper Pumpkin kit, March 2022

Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Die cutting/embossing machine
Painted Labels Dies (page 172, Annual Catalog)
Gingham Embossing Folder (page 176, Annual Catalog)
Paper Snips
Stampin' Dimensionals
Poppy Parade gems (retired)

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of white cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

Add to this card base a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of black cardstock.

Cut a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock to 3 3/4" x 5" and use the Gingham Embossing Folder to emboss it.

Add the embossed piece to the card front.

From black cardstock, die cut the swirly circle. 

On a scrap of white cardstock, stamp the trio of flowers base image in Poppy Parade ink. Then follow with the more detailed stamp in black ink to add some detail to the flowers.

Fussy cut the three flowers together.

Add the cut-out flowers to the center of the swirly circle. Using Stampin' Dimensionals, add this to the card front about 3/4" - 1" from the top of the embossed piece.

Add Poppy Parade embellishments to the centers of the two smaller flowers.

On a 1" x 3" piece of white cardstock, stamp the word "Celebrate".

Adhere the sentiment flat towards the bottom of the card onto the embossed piece.

  1. Paying the extra postage would be worth it to send such a beautiful card! I'm always attracted to cards that have a 3-dimensional quality. This bright red card is both cheerful and dramatic!
