Hey everyone! I just had to share my very last alternate card from the July Paper Pumpkin kit. I was putting away all the cards I created last month and realized I forgot to share this one. It really was one of the simplest alternates to create! The only thing not from the kit are the 3 squares of Mossy Meadow cut at 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ each and the ink. Everything else is from the kit! I cut one of the layers in the kit in half so each half measured 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and then glued them all together adding the Mossy Meadow squares in between and added them with dimensionals to one of the card bases in the kit. I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink and then glued the two layers together and wrapped some of the Linen Thread around it.  Next I added two of the die cuts with Mini Glue Dots behind the tags and also added a double bow of the Linen Thread with a Mini Glue Dot. I then attached it all to the card front with dimensionals and sprinkled on some of the sequins from the kit and voila! Done!! This kit was so much fun!

Now if you like fall as much as I do, then next month’s kit is for you! The kit is actually going to be kraft colored gift bags that we will decorate with all the fall embellishments that will be included along with gift tags.

Then if you want, you can purchase an add-on kit of 24 cards and envelopes to coordinate with the gift bags. We’ve never done an add-on kit before, so this is going to be a first. As a subscriber, you can order your kits, Item Number 152885, at my online store here. You know all those co-workers and loved ones you like to give little gifts to? These will be perfect for you! If you aren’t a subscriber, you only have until Saturday to start your subscription and get the kit. It’s only $22.00 plus tax and shipping is included! Then each month you’ll get a fun box in the mail all ready for you to play with.

I hope I have inspired you with another alternate project. It’s so much fun to challenge myself to see what I can come up with for those projects. It really makes me “step outside the box”.  😉 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing rest of your day!
