Fun Fold PULL TAB Handmade Card - July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Ideas - Stampin' Up

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. For the next couple days, I will share a new alternative idea using the July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – The Adventure Begins. The card I am sharing with you today uses the peekaboo window in a fun way. This handmade alternative card idea has a Pull Tab that reveals the message inside the circle window. There are some steps that may be a little tricky so make sure to check below for written instructions or how to simplify these steps.

I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this month’s kit. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

1- Remove the landscape inside flap from the cardbase. Cut along the folded line. TIP – use a sharp blade and start in the center of the cardstock, then cut to each edge.

2- Adhere Foam Adhesive Strips to the left & right edges on the back of the circle side of the cardbase. Make sure they are close to the edge. Leave a small gap about ½” from the top. Add a small piece at the bottom to keep the inside panel from falling out.

3- Measure the width of the circle, it should be about 3 ¾”. On the landscape panel remove about ¼” from each side stopping ½” from the bottom, you are creating an upside-down T shape. Remove the trimmed strip with a pair of Paper Snips. The width at the top of this panel should be 3 ¾” and should cover the whole circle.

SIMPLIFY – To make this easier; measure the space between the Foam Strips, then cut the whole landscape panel to slide in and out of this space with no stopper. This would mean this panel could be fully removed. Skip step 4 & 5

4- Measure the widest space between your Foam Strips. Mine was 3 7/8”. This is the size you need to trim the bottom ½” area to. Make sure to remove the same amount from both sides to keep it even. I removed 1/16” from each side, leaving about 1/16” larger on each side than the top. This is the stopper and will keep the panel from coming out of the card.

5- Place the inside panel in between the Foam Strips. At the top of the cardstock where the ½” gap is between the top edge and Foam Strips, add a small piece of Foam Strip horizontally making sure the edge of the Strip touches the side of the inside panel. Repeat on the other side. The larger part of the panel at the bottom will catch on these when pulled, to create the stopper to keep the panel inside the card.

6- Make sure the panel moves easily up and down within the Foam Strips. If not make any necessary changes.

7- With the landscape panel in place between the Foam Strips. Remove the paper backing on the Foam Strips and close the back panel over the top. If you want you can cut along the fold before or after folding it closed.

8- Stamp a tree in Garden Green in on to scrap paper, then on the extra white cardstock from the circle cut out. Then stamp the details in Garden Green ink. Fussy cut out. Add this to the front of the card to the right of the larger tree and below the circle opening with adhesive only on the bottom of the tree.

9- Stamp the greeting on the 2nd half of the Banner Die Cut in Garden Green ink. Trim the flat side to match the angled side. Add some adhesive to the left side and attach a faux box with 8” of Black Twine. Add below the tree with dimensionals.

10- Punch a decorative label punch (Label Me Fancy Punch) from Basic White Cardstock. Remove ½” from each side. Attach them to the top of the inside panel, one of the front & back. Cut or draw a small arrow (Give It A Whirl Dies, Black Cardstock, Adhesive Sheets) on to the center of the tab.

11- Stamp a greeting or write your message on the white inside area of the circle when the panel is pull up. Add some rhinestones around the card.

All Done!
