How about another October-2015 Paper Pumpkin alternative! I love seeing how many different cards or projects I can make using my Paper Pumpkin kits with just what’s in the kit or by adding a few extra supplies. This kit included 4 Crushed Curry cards so rather than just making the card with that, I cut them in half and then cut that piece into a 4″ square. I used the retired Curvy Corner trio punch to create the added detail on two corners. Doesn’t it look a part of a garden trellis? The I cut an Old Olive 3-1/2″ square, punched with the same corner punch and added it on the top. The print was circle was included in the kit, but I used my new Layered Circle dies to cut out the center. (I used the center I cut out on this card. I used the same dies to cut out a little bit smaller Daffodil Delight scalloped circle (to cover the “hole”). I added a strip of Old Olive with the greeting stamped on it and made it into a banner (there is a banner included in the kit that you can use, but I used it on this card). I placed it on a square card and embossed it with the “Brick Wall” folder. Looks like a garden wall. I added an envelope liner (I was surprised when Stampin’ Up! retired their enveloper liner framelits, I use them all the time!).
Are you wondering what I did with the inner circle I cut out of the flower print? Check back to see the other card I made using that piece! Meanwhile, here’s the supplies for this card.
