October 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Peaceful Christmas - Fun Gate Fold Handmade Alternative Card Idea

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 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 is a simple Fun Gate Fold Card with a Decorated Belly Band. 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 chelsey@creativechelsey.com. 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

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: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL40dV1oxpkNlYGWDJuIA9OOtm--une6Gw

Here is a list of the supplies I used to make the card:

Thick Basic White Cardstock 159229 $8.25

Paper Trimmer 152392 $25.00

Simply Shammy 147042 $8.00

1- Begin by scoring each side of the cardbase at 2 1/8”. Then fold the sides in so they meet in the center. Use a bone folder to make a nice crease.

2- Trim the cardbases from the kit down to size listed above. Make sure when cutting the Black & White Tree cardbase that the pattern from the two 2” strips match. The easiest way to do this is to cut a 4” x 5 ¼” first then cut it down the center at 2”.

3- Adhere the 2” strips from the Black & White Tree pattern to the sides of the cardbase. They should touch in the center of the card and have an even border along the top, bottom, and side where the card is folded.

4- Wrap the 1 ½” Shaded Spruce strip around the card with the ends meeting in the front. Cover the flaps & opening of the belly band with the 1 ½” x 4 ¼” Buffalo Check piece. Make sure to only add the adhesive to the flaps and not on the back of the Buffalo Check because of the gap between the flaps, you don’t want the adhesive sticking to the cardbase.

5- Remove the Belly Band from the cardbase. Stamp the Tree image from the Stamp Set that came in the Paper Pumpkin Kit in Shaded Spruce across the Buffalo Check.

6- Adhere the Vellum Trees to the center of the Belly Band with a couple glue dots in the center where they will be covered by the Real Red Banner.

7- Add the Noel Die Cut over the Real Red Banner with glue dots. Then add the banner to the center of the Belly Band with dimensionals.

8- Add three Gems on the Belly Band. Stamp or write a message on the inside of the card then slide the Belly Band back onto the cardbase.

All Done!
