Here's a Card, August 2019 Paper Pumpkin, Birthday Card

I found a GREAT card on Pinterest using the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I think this is the most prettiest card I've seen using parts from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  The original card used different Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the bottom part and I think Cherry Cobbler was used on the strip.  I found the card and I went to look to see if I had the DSP and when I came back to my computer, I hit the back button on the Pinterest page and it refreshed my page, telling me it found some new pins for me.  NO!  I was still looking at the old one.  SO, fortunately I had set the loose pieces on my worktable the way they were in the card before I went to look for the DSP.  I do recall the card not having any name or link with it.  That was how I hit the back arrow and lost the page.

So here's how I made the card.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On the bottom I taped a 2" x 4-1/4" piece of DSP from the 6" x 6" Regals pack, with a 1" strip of Cajun Craze taped behind it. I did leave 3/8" of the Cajun Craze card stock exposed.  You could cut a strip 5/8" and tape it to the top edge of the DSP.  I was still working on figuring things out at the time.  Though I think for future cards I will still tape the strip to the back of the DSP.  

I did not press the top part of the DSP pieces to the card base. I needed to be able to slip the other pieces in place.  I taped the colored dotted vellum piece.

The top leaves had a little bit of Shaded Spruce ink sponged on them.  Let it dry for a bit, it takes a little while on that paper.  I glued the vellum leaf in place.  DO NOT glue them.  The vellum warps and doesn't like to lay back down.  I ended up using a glue dot to get it to stay down some.  It is still sticking up in spots.  The glue dot does not show, so use them!

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set. I used Early Espresso ink to stamp them.  And I used the Stamparatus to help with the words since everything was already in place on the card front.  And for the final touch, the sequins were added.

Now looking at the card, the bottom is so open looking.  So I think when I make another one (which I will as soon as I'm done posting this), I will cut the DSP to 1-1/2" and keep the strip the same 5/8" and that will bring the die cut pieces down a bit too.  And I'll move the words so they are still 5/8" from the top edge of the Cajun Craze strip.

It's SO pretty and I LOVE the looks of it. And I can use up more of the pieces in my Paper Pumpkin kit!

If you know who the designer of this card is, please let me know so I can give them credit.  Thanks.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
