A Little Springtime Greeting - February 2024 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card Idea - Stampin' Up!

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here on Creative Chelsey. Over the next week I am going to share with you 9 card ideas you can make with one set of supplies from this month’s kit.

Today I am sharing with you my first alternative card using the February 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Sweet Springtime. The projects from this kit perfect for this time of year, it creates a total of 6 greeting card 3 in two different designs, and 3 gift boxes. If you would like to watch me unbox the kit and create these cards click on the link below.

Each month I take the contents from the paper pumpkin kits and make alternative projects. My cards are easy to follow and can be made by both experienced or new paper crafter. You may need just a couple other products to complete them. You can follow along with me using supplies you already have or purchase any products you see me use from my online store all links are below.

Today’s card uses the cute bunny cardbase as the focal point in this quick and easy card.

1- Cut Rabbit Cardbase in half at 4 ¼”. Trim the off the top area by cutting the Rabbit side to 4”. Cut ¼” off the left side making a 4” x 4” square. Round the top right corner with a Rounded Corner Punch or Circle Punch.

2- Cut the folded edges from the Green Envelope. From the long edge remove 1” (the rest should be about 5 ½”). Cut the strip down to 4”. Round the bottom right corner.

3- On the Cardbase round the top right and bottom right corners. Add the Rabbit Design top the top half of the cardbase with about a ¼” border on the top and right sides. The left side should be placed along the folded edge of the cardbase. Add the Green Strip below, the border along the bottom should also be about ¼”.

4- Add the Berry Burst Strip over the seam.

5- Stamp the Daffodil image in Early Espresso ink on the Daffodil Delight & Garden Green Cardstock pieces. Fussy cut the flowers from the Daffodil Delight & the Leaves/Stem from the Garden Green.

6- Adhere the yellow flowers over the Leaves/Stems. Use the Dark Daffodil Delight marker to add depth to the flowers. I added it to the top oval, a little to the right of the trumpet, and a little on the inside of each petal. Add the flowers to the right of the Berry Burst strip with a glue dot at the base and dimensionals under the flowers.

7- Stamp a greeting in Early Espresso ink on a simple label shape from Very Vanilla Cardstock. I used the one from The Love Of Spring Dies.

8- On the back add a faux bow in the top left corner with 10” of Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine. Add the greeting with dimensionals so the flowers are in the top left corner.

All Done!
