Teeny Tiny Wishes, July 2017 Paper Pumpkin Additional Card

Today I'm going to share with you an "additional" card I made using the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I am saying "additional" card because I did not make an alternative card with this kit. I liked the projects in the kit, though note cards are not one of my favorites but for those all I did was added the note card to a folded half-sheet of card stock.  I'll share those finished cards with you in a few day. 

For this card I used a folded half-sheet of Berry Burst card stock.  On top of that I added a 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock.  The top two layers need to be created together to get the perfect layered effect.  I took a piece of Daffodil Delight cut 3-1/8" x 4-1/8" and a piece of Decorative Series Paper (DSP) from the Delightful Daisy pack. I just can't seem to put that pack of paper down!!!  The DSP is cut 3" x 4".  Place a small amount of double-sided tape to the area where you think the hole will be punched. You don't need to measure, you can just eye the spot. I took the 1-1/2" circle punch and dropped the piece all the way in. I eyed the edges to make sure they were as close to being equal as possible.  Then I punched the hole. I separated the two pieces and took the DSP and the 1-5/8" die and lined it up equally all around and die cut the circle out.  I taped the two layers together.

Here is where you want to tie a ribbon around.  If you forget and add it to the top of the card, it will be very difficult to get that ribbon around the panel.  You can always just place a piece of ribbon and add a separate bow, so all is not lost if you forget.

I took a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock and stamped my images.  You want smaller images, they need to fit in the opening.  I used the sun and the tulip from the "2017 July Paper Pumpkin Kit". I stamped the sun using Daffodil Delight, the tulips using Berry Burst and the leaves using Pear Pizzazz.  Once you are done with your image piece, set it in place over the opening using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  There are some in the Paper Pumpkin kit but I wanted to make a Thinking of You card.  They were just taped in place.  

The focal panel is attached using Dimensionals on the open ares on the back and tape on the flat raised area (the image piece).  And that's it.  Very fun and easy to make.  It's a great way to highlight those smaller images.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
