 Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey.

As the air turns crisp and the scent of cinnamon and pine fills our homes, there's no doubt that the holiday season is right around the corner. It's a time for cozy gatherings, twinkling lights, and the joy of giving. What better way to spread that joy than with heartfelt, handmade cards?

This month, I am thrilled to share my alternative handmade cards, crafted with love and imagination using supplies from the October 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Home For The Holidays. Featuring adorable Christmas decorated homes, enchanting outdoor scenes, and bold, festive colors, these cards are sure to capture the magic of the season.

1- Begin by cutting the Row of Houses Die Cut in half at the tip of the center tree. Use the Red & Blue House Half for this card, save the other half for card #5. 

Adhere the Small Tree Die Cut behind the cut tree on the left. This will make it a full looking tree.

2- Stamp the dot pattern in Real Red ink along the edge of the Real Red piece. Add this to the front of the cardbase.

3- Add the Floral Vellum piece to the left of the cardbase with adhesive placed underneath the area that will be covered by the other elements.

4- Add the houses to the right side of the card with the edge of the blue house lining up with the edge of the Real Red piece. I used adhesive on the right side, but dimensionals on the left.

5- Place the ¼” strip of Old Olive along the bottom edge of the houses piece. This will make a nice transition from the bottom of the houses to the cardbase. Angle the ends to match the Glitter Strip.

6- Cut the Wreath from one of the envelopes with the 1 ¾” circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Add it to the left side of the card, in the open area under the tree, with dimensionals.

7- Cut the Glitter Strip in half lengthwise just under ½” so both sides are the same width. Add one over the Old Olive strip with dimensionals.

8- Stamp your greeting in VersaMark on Night of Navy cardstock. Make sure to use an Embossing Buddy before stamping. Cover with White Embossing Powder, remove excess, and heat until shinny with a Heat Tool. Trim down to about ½” and angle the ends to match the Gitter Strip. Add over the Glitter Strip.

9- Outline the bow from the Wreath in Glitter Glue.

All Done!
