I'm still working on using up the pieces in my July 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. I did make one of the boxes but that was all I really needed, so I'm trying to use up the pieces to create cards. I wish Stampin' Up! had a page to go to with alternative ideas for kits you didn't enjoy as much as you thought you would. Or like me, to make cards out of the pieces I didn't want to use. I'd LOVE that job!!! How fun would that be?
Anyway, onto this card. I took one of the boxes and laid it out flat on the paper cutter. I cut a rectangle and a triangle and I layered them with Basic Black card stock. You can still see the score marks in the layered piece but I thought it just gave the piece a little more character.
I used the "Touches of Texture" set for the flowers. I colored them in using markers and a blender pen. I layered it with a piece of Basic Black card stock and I set it in place on the card with Dimensionals.
I played around with the layout until I found one that was pleasing to my eye and this is what I ended up with. I think it worked. I colored in 3 "White Accents" with a Sharpie marker and added them to the left side of the card. I used the birthday greetings from the "Petite Pairs" set.
The base of the card is Basic Black. I added a layer of Daffodil Delight (though I think it would look better if it were the other way around) and I added the Whisper White layer and finished it off from there.
I did have fun playing with these pieces. I still have more pieces, but I think I'll save them for another day.
Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
