This tutorial shows you the design for the exclusive card kit I will be sending to my Paper Pumpkin customers who received the May 2020 Kit “A Kit in Color”.

Card #1
1- Trace the 3 cloud sizes on to Whisper White cardstock and cut out.
2- Stamp the asterisks image in Misty Moonlight in the top right corner and along the bottom of the 4” x 5 ¼” Balmy Blue cardstock. 
3- Punch out a circle from So Saffron and stamp the 3 line image (happy lines) along the edge in Daffodil Delight.
4- Stamp all the rainbow arches in Melon Mambo in the top half of the Purple Posy 2” x 2 ¾” rectangle. Stamp the greeting “oh,happy day” 2 times on the ½” strip.
5- Use a sponge dauber and add some Misty Moonlight color along the edges of each cloud and the Balmy Blue card front.
6- Adhere the sun in the top left corner of the card front. Add the largest cloud in the center. Wrap 16” of yellow twine or ribbon and tie a bow on the right side.
7- Add the rainbow with dimensionals on the right side of the large cloud. Add the small cloud under the right side of the rainbow. Add the medium cloud in the bottom left corner. 
8- Cut the greeting into these sections “oh, happy” “happy day” add these to the medium cloud. Add the card front to the card base.
All Done!

Card #2
1- Cut all strips to 4” in length. The width doesn’t matter, but I didn’t want anything larger than 1/2” or so.
2- Adhere each strip to the Whisper White cardbase. Keep them close to each other and leave a border along the edges of the cardbase.
3- Punch out some shapes from leftover Purple Posy cardstock, add them to the rectangle from one of the shaker cards or use any large piece of cardstock you have leftover. Add this to your card in the center.
4- Ink the greeting “hey” and “You’re amazing” in Pumpkin Pie then use a sponge dauber to pick up Melon Mambo ink on the sponge dauber and add color to the stamp to create the ombre look. Stamp on any leftover white paper or white envelope paper. Fussy cut.
5- Add your greetings to your card. You can use dimensionals if you want. Tie a bow with 8” of twine and add any leftover embellishments.
All Done!
