Quick and Easy Alternative Card Idea Using The April 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Change Is Beautiful

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 fourth alternative idea using the April 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Change Is Beautiful.

This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Beautiful Cards, 3 in three different designs. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative cards. Today I am sharing a simple card idea using the Butterfly Cardbase. I love creating alternative projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more as I continue to create with this month’s kit.

If this project inspires you to create something, I would love for you to tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

1- Cut the Butterfly Cardbase in half at 5 ½”. Trim the left panel down to 3 ¾” x 5” and the back panel to 5 7/16” x 4 3/16”.

2- Add the Back Panel to the cardbase with the Melon Mambo side on the left and Crushed Curry on the right.

3- Emboss the Front Panel with any embossing folder. I used Painted Texture. This helps hide the previous scored and folded line. Add to the center of the cardbase with dimensionals.

4- Add the Caterpillar and Butterfly Die Cuts with dimensionals.

5- Stamp the greeting on the Basic White piece. Flag the bottom and attach at the top of the center panel with strong adhesive at the top and dimensionals at the bottom.

6- Add some embellishments to flowers or around the elements.

All Done!
