My Paper Pumpkin June 2016 Banner Surprise Kit: Another Alternate Card

Hey Guys!  Are you loving this month's Paper Pumpkin kit!? 
I thought they were such a creative card idea!  A whole banner that wraps around a card is such a fun, original idea!  I think this card would be perfect to send to a crafty friend to really wow them!  You can watch the video below to see how to create the cards as they were designed.

I wanted to create a card wit a different design that would use the envelope/bag in some way.  I just love that Mint Macaron color!


I started with a Thick Whisper White card base measuring 5.5"x8.5" and scored at 4.25".  I cut a strip off of the printed card bases from the kit that measures 5.5"x2".  I cut a piece of the Mint Macaron envelope/bag that measures 5.25"x2.5".  I stamped the die cut circles that came in the kit and I pulled a couple doilies from my stash.  I just love the new In Color doilies!  I embellished the card with the sequins from the kit and added a few rhinestones from my stash, too.


In the video above you can see the whole process of creating this card from start to finish.

My Paper Pumpkin June 2016 Banner Surprise Kit Reveal and Alternate Card Ideas


Hey Guys!  Are you loving this month's Paper Pumpkin kit!? 
I thought they were such a creative card idea!  A whole banner that wraps around a card is such a fun, original idea!  I think this card would be perfect to send to a crafty friend to really wow them!  You can watch the video below to see how to create the cards as they were designed.


I wanted to create a simplified version of the card that just used one of the pennants.  The original design is really cool, but it is pretty intense!  I wanted to tone it down just a bit.



This is what I came up with.  I used just one of the pennants and I stamped the sentiment using the stamps from the kit rather than the stickers.  I also added a sprinkle of sequins.  Those were my favorite thing from the kit!  So, so pretty!



Here's a closer look.  I love those sequins!  You can really see the shine on the iridescent sequins in this photo.


In my video above you can see me unbox the kit and watch how I created the next card.


I just loved the stamp set included in this kit.  I have a thing for circles :)  I created my own background on a Whisper White card base using the two circle stamps included in this month's kit.  Along with the card base, I also used a gold metallic doily from my stash, but everything else I used was from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love coming up with alternate card designs using the contents of the kit!


I love the washi tape that we got in the kit this month.  The gold foil and peach stripes are so fun!
