Create a Beautiful Holiday Christmas Card with Leftover Pieces from October 2021 Paper Pumpkin 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 I am sharing my second alternative card idea using the October 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Peaceful Christmas. This kit comes with everything you need to make 10 beautiful Christmas Cards, 5 in two different designs. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some Basic White Cardbases and make more cards.

Today’s card uses the leftover vellum die cut tree piece to make a beautiful Christmas / Holiday handmade card . 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 I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more as I continue to create with this month’s kit

1- Begin by opening up the envelope and removing the silver foil trees from the bottom – I cut it at 1 ¾”.

2- Then with the leftover Buffalo Check side of the envelope cut 2 - 1 ¼” x 4” pieces. Adhere these to the top and bottom of the cardbase with an even amount of space along the outside edges.

3- From the leftover Shaded Spruce Cardbase from the kit (from Alternative Card #1 - ) cut to 4” x 5 ¼”. Then tear the top and bottom to create a fun edge.

4- With the score line at the top, stamp the Tree Image in Shaded Spruce ink going across the center. Add this to the center of the cardbase so the Buffalo Check pattern peaks out from behind.

5- Round the edges of the Vellum Tree Leftover Piece with the Detailed Trio Punch. Then stamp with VersaMark the snowflake stamp over the top half of the Vellum Tree Piece. Add White Embossing Powder and heat.

6- Add glue dots behind the large snowflakes and adhere over the scored line at the top. The stamped trees should also be see in the tree openings.

7- Add the Noel die cut at an angle to the center of the Gray Woodgrain Rectangle. Then tear the bottom edge of the Real Red Cardstock and add to the back. Add this to the bottom right corner of the Vellum Piece with dimensionals.

8- Tie a bow with 7” of Real Red Twine and add to the bottom right corner of the Gray Rectangle. Then add 3 Gems.

All Done!
