Simple Elegance: Creating An Alternative Card with the September 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Stampin’ Up!

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey.

In this blog series, I have been sharing with you some simple and easy card designs you can create with the contents of this kit. Let's infuse a little magic of fall into this next card and create an elegant design with the Gold Branch Die Cuts. Handmade cards are such a wonderful way to warm the hearts of those who receive them.

1- Open the cardbase and remove ¾” from the right front edge. Then stamp the Branch Image in Lost Lagoon ink Randomly on the top & bottom. Use the Stamp Off and Stamp On technique to get a faint image.

2- Cut the Lost Lagoon Cardbase in half on the score line. Save one for card #6.

3- Add the Gold Branch Die Cuts along the edges of the Lost Lagoon card front with dimensionals. Add the smaller of the two in the top left corner. Add the Larger along the right edge with about half on – half off. Trim off the hanging areas. Then add the second half of the Larger piece to the bottom of the Lost Lagoon card front. Add this to the center of the cardbase front.

4- Add one of the Gold Foil Strips to the inside of the front of the card along the right edge with about 1/8” showing.

5- For the inside, add the second Gold Foil Strip to the left side of the small strip from the Box Template, with about 1/8” showing. Add this to the right side on the inside of the cardbase.

6- Double wrap 32” of White Bakers Twine around the right edge. Hold it in place with a small glue dots where you want to tie a bow. Tie a bow.

7- Stamp your greeting on one of the Banners with Lost Lagoon ink. Add it to the front of the cardbase with dimensionals. Add white sequins.

All Done!
