Thank you for sticking with me for multiple Paper Pumpkin Alternative posts. Tonight will be the final one, although as you will see at the end, I still have a good quantity of supplies left. Enough to make the 3 included cards or 6-7 alternatives. It’s a great value at $22 a kit and includes a stamp set and ink that can continue to be used. Tomorrow is a great time to subscribe (you have to the 10th of the month prior to the kit you want) because Sale-A-Bration begins and there are free, exclusive items for every $50 retail spent. More on that tomorrow!
I started with the 3 kit cards cut in half and then added card bases (Whisper White and Crushed Curry), a little dry embossing (Woodland and Scripty folders), die cutting (Stitched Shapes Dies) the Triple Banner Punch (2″ strips) and a little ink (Old Olive and Shaded Spruce).
The side strips on cards 3 and 4 are just left over 1/4″ strips that were trimmed from the original card front/back. The gold accent pieces on card 6 are the leftover pieces left on the release paper after the gold swirly image was peeled up.
On the insides, additional 1/4″ strips were used. The gold on card 6 was trimmed from the edge of the gold sticker sheet with the Paper Trimmer.
These are the supplies still left. I still have plenty left to make the 3 kit cards or 6-7 alternatives.
So far, that’s 17 cards. A little more than $1. 30 a card. And, I love that I’m stocked and ready to go with birthday, sympathy, and thank you cards. No driving to the store and paying a lot. And they turned out beautiful! I hope it’s inspired you to be creative. That’s what Paper Pumpkin is for me….creativity in a box!
