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!
