Add Ruffles With The Gold Tissue Paper From The March 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Alternative Card Ideas - Stampin' Up!

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 March 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Ten Years Of Growth.

This beautiful kit creates 9 handmade cards. There are enough supplies to make three of each card. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative projects. I love the gold accents from the die cuts and the Gold Tissue Paper that was also inside. These elements inspired my design I am sharing with you today.

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:
