Yes, August 2022 is the Paper Pumpkin kit that just keeps giving. The envelopes are pretty, the card bases are pretty – you really have to use it all!
One of the card bases raised it’s hand and told me that it wanted to be put to another use – so I obliged:
I took one of these beautiful card bases and cut it into four – along the crease (4 1/4″) and then those pieces in half at 2 3/4″. Now I had some pieces to work with.
Here are the four cards I made – they all used the same basic design:
I used a card base of Basic White – 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ along the long side and a matte of 3″ x 4 1/2″ of Blackberry Bliss card stock. I stamped the sentiment of Thank You in Blackberry Bliss ink on Basic White cardstock and cut those out using my favorite little banner from the Stylish Shapes dies.
Then is was just a matter of modifying each one a little (but I do love all of the designs). I added a linen thread bow to one. I added Solid Faceted Gems to another. I stamped a background of flowers and leaves on a third. I used the free gifted honeycomb piece as a mask to make a cool background on the fourth.
