Small notes to say I’m thinking of you

Wouldn’t it be nice to have small note cards ready to go with a friend or family member needs a little “pick-me-up”? The monthly Paper Pumpkin kits provide the perfect opportunity to do just that! Here’s another alternative card from the October, 2015 “Blissful Bouquet” kit. These darling 3″ x 3″ cards are perfect for letting someone you know that you care.

Rather than cover the entire front with the green leaf paper, I cut a strip, added an Old Olive band behind it to make it pop. I stamped the flower on a scrap of Daffodil Delight paper and the leaves on a scrap of Old Olive paper (with the stamp set from the Paper Pumpkin kit!). I did fussy cut them out, but they are so small it didn’t take that much time. I stamped my greeting on the tag in the kit, popped them all up on dimensional, and viola…a darling “Thinking of You” card for a friend! You don’t need many supplies for this, just a few scraps of the Stampin’ Up! card stock colors and everything else is in the Paper Pumpkin kit!

BTW-I thought I’d share what’s included in the kit:

And here’s what the suggested cards look like when they are finished (and so you can see how I’m altering mine!). So skip to the fun part of crafting with Paper Pumpkin. Everything is precut and ready to go so that you can jump right in and start having fun. Or get creative with new ideas using the Paper Pumpkin pieces.

If you’re my current Paper Pumpkin customer, you can order the kit refills while they are in stock. But if you’re not a subscriber yet, purchase a Paper Pumpkin subscription now (select me, Janice Baranowski, as your demo), and then you can stop over and get the refill on my shop!

QUOTE FOR THE DAY:
No one has made it through life without someone’s help or encouragement.
So, create a card or two to tell someone you care, or to encourage them, or to just say I’m here. If you need help with your ideas and creations, let me know how I can help you!
