March 2022 Paper Pumpkin - Beyond The Horizon - Simple Alternative Handmade Card Ideas - Stampin' Up

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 first alternative idea using the March 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Beyond The Horizon.

This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Beautiful Cards, 3 in three different designs. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative cards. Today I am sharing a simple card idea that uses the cardbase as the focal point instead of a background element. I love creating alternative projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more as I continue to create with this month’s kit.

If this project inspires you to create something, I would love for you to tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

It is Paper Pumpkin Week here on Creative Chelsey. This is the first alternative this week. If you would like to see all my alternatives check out the playlist here:

1- Remove a center area from the front of the cardbase. I measured ¾” from the edges and cut to ¾” from the top & bottom edges. This gave me a center piece about 2 ¾” x 4”

2- Cut open a coordinating envelopes and trim down to 3” x 4 ¼” (you can get two from one envelope). Use the double-sided side.

3- Layer the envelope over the hole in the cardbase. I used liquid adhesive around the edge of the opening.

4- You can use a ruler to measure that it is evenly spaced. I looked for about 5/8” from the edges.

5- When you open the card you will see the other pattern – so fun!

6- Add the center cardbase piece over the envelope piece with dimensionals. Try to match up the designs. There should be a 1/8" border.

7- Decorate with a greeting, ribbon, and any die cut pieces. Add three Iridescent Rhinestones from the kit.

All Done!
