Soft Pink Autumn Handmade Card - Alternative September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Subscription Craft Kit

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 is my fourth alternative project using the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hello Pumpkin.

This card has such a simple layout, but really packs a punch with the extra touches like the stitched embossing in the background and the Brushed Gold Cardstock diamonds. I really can’t believe how many die-cut pieces come in this kit! After making most of my alternative projects I still have so many pieces that I can keep playing with.

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- Run the top half of the Petal Pink Cardstock through an embossing folder or use the stitched lines from the Stitched Leaves Dies. I started the embossing/stitching at 2 ¼” from the bottom edge. Adhere to the front of the cardbase.

2- Cut the diamond pattern from the Cracker Box Die Cut by lining up the score line at the top and bottom of each diamond at ¼” from your cut line on your paper trimmer (watching the video below, maybe helpful). Then cut, and repeat on the other side of the diamonds. You can use the leftover pieces to create some of my other alternative projects – see past blog posts.

3- Adhere the Brushed Metallic Cardstock Strip to the back of the diamonds. Then trim each side as close to the edge of the end diamonds as you feel comfortable without cutting the diamond. It should be close to 4” maybe 4 1/8”. Adhere this to the bottom of the card with about ¼” of Petal Pink Cardstock showing.

4- Add the Pumpkin Pie strip at the top of the diamond pattern.

5- Add the Double Pumpkin Die Cut from the kit (or another of your choice) to the left side of the card. I placed it so the small pumpkin is sitting above the Pumpkin Pie strip. Then stamp your greeting on the banner label with the Cajun Craze ink spot and add under the small pumpkin with dimensionals.

6- Place any other die cuts from the kit around the greeting. Tie a bow with 8” of twine and add it to the bottom left corner of the greeting.

All Done!
