Fun Shape Handmade Card with Money Pocket using Paper Pumpkin November 2021 - Gifts Galore

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 I am sharing my second alternative card idea using the November 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Gifts Galore. This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 super cute Christmas/Holiday Themed Gift Treat Boxes, 3 in three different designs. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some craft supplies and make cards.

Today’s card is a simple Fun Shape Handmade Card. shown with all three designs from the kit along with a Pocket made with the box template. 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 chelsey@creativechelsey.com.

1- Lightly adhere the large present piece to the front of the cardbase. Make sure the score line of the cardbase lines up with the top flat edge of the presents. The bow can hang off. Trim off any excess from the bottom & edges. Finish adhering it completely to the cardbase.

2- Begin trimming the cardbase around the presents with a sharp pair of Paper Snips. I like to cut a little on the inside of the edge so both the front present piece and the cardbase are the same shape.

3- To add a little shine, mix a couple drops of Wink of Stella with Rubbing Alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. Shake and spray a little on the presents. Then place between a couple books to keep flat as it dries.

4- To make the pocket. Remove the small sections on the left and right at the corners from the middle section. See image. Then trim the bottom area at an angle to create a bottom flap.

5- Stamp the striped rectangle in Pool Party ink at the bottom of the pocket. Then only ink up “holidays” in Flirty Flamingo and stamp right above the rectangle. Clean and ink and stamp “happy” above and to the right.

6- Fold in the side flaps and add Tear & Tape Adhesive. Then fold in the bottom flap and add adhesive. Place inside the card and add money.

7- To decorate the front I stamped the striped rectangle in Pool Party ink and fussy cut out. Add over the large red gift at the bottom of the presents. Stamp your greeting in Flirty Flamingo ink and fussy cut out. Add over the striped rectangle with dimensionals.

8- Tie a bow with 8” of Twine and adhere by the greeting with a glue dot.
