Paper Pumpkin Alternatives - September 2020 Kit Hello Pumpkin | How I used the Diamond Shape Pieces

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. I love getting my Paper Pumpkin Kit every month and creating fun alternative projects using the supplies in the kit. Today is my second alternative project using the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hello Pumpkin. Sometimes the best ideas can come from unexpected places. That is kind of where this card idea came from. As I was punching out the diamonds from the cracker box cardstock, I realized that they were a perfect shape to repeat and would make a fun design for a card. And this card idea was born.

1- Remove about 20 diamond shape pieces from 2 cracker boxes. Adhere one diamond to the center of the crumb cake cardstock. Use this first diamond as a guide and add the other 19 around it. Randomly mix in the other pattern on the other side. You may choose to make the diamond pattern symmetrical or more random – your choice. Trim any diamonds that are hanging off the edge of the cardstock. 

2- Once all your diamonds are on the crumb cake cardstock use an embossing folder to give texture to everything. This makes the pieces feel like they are part of a cohesive piece rather than a bunch of diamonds glued to a piece of cardstock.

3- Add the coordinating solid cardstock behind the crumb cake cardstock at an angle. Then add both to the front of your cardbase at an angle.

4- Stamp your greeting onto one of the die cut banner pieces and add to your card with dimensionals.

All Done!
