October 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative - New Layout Idea for Handmade Christmas Greeting Cards

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 third alternative idea using the October 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Ho Ho Ho.

This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Christmas Cards, 3 in three different designs. This kit is so fun. I love the fun color combination, the cute die cuts & stamp images. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative projects.

Today I am sharing with you a fun layout for any handmade greeting card. I was inspired by this card which was created for the Stampin’ Through The Catalog Instagram Account. What I loved from this card were the 6 sections used for the background.

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

It is Paper Pumpkin Week here on Creative Chelsey. This is the third alternative this week. If you would like to see all my alternatives check out the playlist here:

1- Open the Crumb Cake Envelope and cut six 1 ½” squares.

2- From the Crumb Cake Cardbase cut six 1 5/8” squares. Use the Crumb Cake side.

3- The leftover back piece from the Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake Cardbase cut 3 5/8” x 5 ½”

4- Layer the six envelope squares with the pinstripe side up on top of the Crumb Cake 1 5/8” squares.

5- Add all six in a grid to the Cherry Cobbler piece with dimensionals.

6- Wrap 11” of Glitter Ribbon around the bottom gap and tie with 10” of Linen Thread. Tie a bow and trim the ends of the ribbon to an angle.

7- Add your elements. I placed the medium and small snowflake on the right side and the Santa die cut on the left. Flag the ends of the green strip and add below the ribbon. 

8- Add Merry between the Santa and ribbon. Then Stamp Christmas in Early Espresso ink on a small white label. Adhere below Merry.

9- Adhere this to the front of the cardbase with about ¼” on the left side. Add three Vanilla Pearls.

All Done!
