Paper Pumpkin Alternatives!

Hello Everyone!

Today is the first day in a series of 4!

I subscribe to Stampin’Up! monthly kit, Paper Pumpkin!

November’s Kit was for 24 tags!

I do not really have use for gift tags, especially that many!

So, I did want any Card Maker would do…I made them into cards!

I now have 24 Christmas Cards…6 each of 4 designs!

I will share the Cards over the next 4 days!

Here is what the Kit pictures, for the completed tags!


For all the cards, made from these tags…other items were also added!

Today’s Card is from the first tag on the left, with the red bird!

All are standard A2 Card bases- 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″

folded in half on the score line!


Here is my Card!


The Softly Falling 3d Embossing Folder (EF) got a workout, on all the Cards!

I used the EF on the background panel, Whisper White– 3.75″ x 5″ and

I also die cut, with the Stitched Shapes Dies, the circle, and used the EF on this too!

The Card Base is Poppy Parade. Although the Kit stated Real Red, I thought the

Poppy Parade went better with the red bird!

The Big Shot got a workout with the EF and Dies!

The Paper Pumpkin pieces were:

The Winter Gifts Stamp Set included in the Kit!

I used one of the stamps for the greeting!

the background tag, the ribbon (I made a bow to cover the tag hole)

 the red bird die cut, the die cut, greeting banner (unstamped), and the holly leaves!

I also added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little bling!

A Black Rhinestone Basic Jewel was used for the bird’s eye!


Here is the simple inside!


The Whisper White panel is 4″ x 5.25″ and stamped with the sentiment from

the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set, in Shaded Spruce Ink, as is the greeting.

Plenty of space to write a personal note and signature!


See you tomorrow for the next Card!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Peace to you ALL!


Let me know what you think!
