March 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit No Matter the Weather - Beautiful Spring Time Alternative Card Ideas

This tutorial is part of my Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card ideas for March 2020 – No Matter the Weather Kit. This tutorial shows you how to use the supplies for one card to create two new cards with just a little more cardstock. I love how these cards have that spring time feeling. I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more tutorials as I continue to create with this month’s kit.

Before starting:
1- Begin by cutting the blue sky card base from the kit in half to remove the front from the back at 3.5” for card #1. Cut the back piece in half so you have two pieces that are 2.5” x 3.5” for card #2.
2- Trim about 1/16” from the right, left, and bottom of the Petal Pink envelope to separate the stripe pattern from the back. Remove the top part of the envelope so you have a piece about 3 ½” x 4 ½” for card #2. Then trim the envelope flap to about 1 ¼” x 4 ¼” card #1.

Card #1
1- Stamp the large cloud image a couple times in Balmy Blue ink over the Blue Sky card front from the kit. You can get a lighter shade by stamping off then on your cardstock without reinking.
2- Stamp your greeting on the 2 1/8” strip of So Saffron in Basic Gray ink. I used “Your capable of amazing things”
3- Add the blue sky card front to the right side of the Whisper White cardbase. Then add the Petal Pink strip from the envelope flap to the left.
4- Add the rain boot die cuts with dimensionals so the left boot covers the pink. Wrap 15” of twine and adhere it to the back of the greeting. Then add the greeting to the right of the rain boots with dimensionals.
5- Add some epoxy raindrops from the kit in the sky and some iridescent sequins around the greeting.

All Done!
Card #2
1- Stamp the large could image two times in Balmy Blue in top half of one white rectangle. You can do the same stamp off stamp on technique if you want.
2- Use Shaded Spruce and stamp the grass along the bottom. You can also to the stamp off, stamp on to get a lighter shade between the groups.
3- On the other white rectangle stamp the single flower image 3 times in each – So Saffron and Petal Pink ink. Then use the stamp off, stamp on with the Calypso Coral to get a lighter shade of that color. Fussy cut out all 9 flowers.
4- Stamp your greeting in Basic Gray ink on the 2 ½” strip of So Saffron. I used “Let Love Grow”
5- Add the Petal Pink stripe piece to the center of the Petal Pink cardbase. Then place the stamped sky and grass cardstock in the center.
6- Arrange the 9 flowers along the top of the grass. You can use both glue dots and dimensionals to give it some interest.
7- Add the bunny die cut to the bottom right corner and the greeting over the clouds with a dimensionals.
8- Add some epoxy circles from the kit to the center of each flower, add some iridescent sequins, then tie a bow with the 8” of twine and adhere it under the greeting on the left.

All Done!
