Welcome to another Fabulous Friday! Today’s project is an alternate card using the August Paper Pumpkin Kit. This kit is absolutely gorgeous! Did you get a chance to see today’s video? If not, you can see it on my Youtube Channel and while you’re there, be sure to subscribe to the channel. Here are the measurements for today’s card:
- Card base in Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Card from the kit cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″ and 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″
I took one of the card bases from the kit and cut the printed side at 3 3/4″ x 5″ and the other half of the card base at 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. I adhered the printed side of the card to the Lemon Lime Twist and I wrapped around some of the twine from the kit and then adhered it all to the card base. Next I added Wink of Stella to all the flowers in the print. I stamped the sentiment on one of the little tags that is included in the kit. When I originally created this project I forgot to add some of the vellum leaves, but when I shot the video I remembered to add them. Here’s a look at the one from the video.
I definitely like this one a lot more then the original. After I added the sentiment, I added a bow with a Mini Glue Dot. Next I took some of our pearls and colored them with the Dark Flirty Flamingo and the new Dark Basic Black. That one isn’t available until September 5th when the Holiday Catalog launches, along with some additional colors. I LOVE how cute the black pearls are on the butterfly!!! Here’s a close up look at it:
Isn’t that adorable?!? I love, love, love how we can coordinate all of our embellishments with our projects, all with the swipe of one of the Blends! Then the other half of that card we cut I used for the inside and stamped the flower in Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight to bring the outside of the card inside. The stamp set even has that little center of the flower and I stamped that with the Tuxedo Black ink pad. Here’s a look at the inside:
