MY ALTERNATE PAPER PUMPKIN CARDS
Card #1: You Brighten My Day
I took the gingham card base and cut it on the score line. Then I took the oval piece and cut an 1/8″ off each side (see picture below). I cut the green grass approximately 1/4″ off the bottom (see picture below). I attached the grass to the back of the oval piece with tear and tape, then added Stampin’ Dimensionals (see picture below). I stamped a sun on a scrap piece of basic white and fussy cut. I stamped a frog in Old Olive and fussy cut him out. I used a blender pen and the Mango Melody ink to color his belly. I then used the blender pen and Old Olive ink to fill in the frog. Next, I stamped the kite with Mango Melody and used a glue dot to attach to the rabbit. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to rabbit, kite, and frog. The sentiment is stamped in Balmy Blue and added the dots from the kit. Inside of the card, I used the blender brush and balmy blue ink to add some color around the edges of the basic white piece then stamped the sentiment and the flowers.
Card #2: Friends In Any Kind of Weather
I cut the blue gingham cardbase in half. The front piece I attached the grey matching cut out to the back, then I cut a 1/8″ strip of Flirty Flamingo and attached them to the top and bottom. I then added dimensionals to the back and added it to the Balmy Blue cardbase. I cut the umbrellas out of the Rain or Shine specialty designer series paper, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the duck, umbrella, and a couple of the clouds. One cloud I cut in half to use 2 parts on each side and I added the rain drop embellishments. Inside of the card, I used the Blender Brush and Balmy Blue ink to add some color around the edges of the basic white piece then stamped the sentiment and the flowers.
