Paper Pumpkin April 2017 Alternative

three cards from the Paper Pumkin April 2017 kit

I always love when my monthly Paper Pumpkin arrives in the mail.  This month was even more exciting because  Sara Douglass our CEO had created the kit with a promise of a free gift. I was NOT disappointed!  Most of all, I love the bright new 2017-2019 In Colors with the black card base and free watercolor pencils gift.

After making the cards that the kit instructions described( see picture at top) I started to wonder how  I could change it up a bit.  You know, get a little creative!  I got to thinking that cutting out the stars would be fun and I ended up with 4.  Because the new Lemon Lime Twist color is prominent in this kit and it is also include in the Easter Palace Suite, I decide to use this Lemon Lime Twist designer series paper.

Finally, after moving things around a bit I came up with design.  The steps to make it are listed below.

Steps for creating this Paper Pumpkin Alternative

  1. color the star embossed watercolor paper in color of your choice and blend with water and paint brush.
  2. after the color has dried cut out 4 stars
  3. cut a strip of designer paper 1.75 inch by 4.25 inch and adhere to bottom of landscape card base.
  4. cut a flag from the same designer paper 1.25 inch by 2.5 inch and a flag 1.25 by 3.75 inches from a coordinating cardstock. I picked Berry Burst.
  5. adhere washi tape included in the kit to the end of a white flag also included in the kit.
  6. stamp sentiment on white flag
  7. adhere the 4 cut out stars along the edge of the designer paper and the layer the 3 flags
  8. glue green sequins in a scattered pattered all over the exposed black card base

Ta-da! a beautiful card to give to someone special in your life.
