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

This is my last Paper Pumpkin alternative card. I have other cards I want to make or copy!  But I had so many pieces left to my kit that I felt I needed to make one more using that yellowish circle.  I ended up using a half circle, which means I could make a ton of these if I had enough of the other pieces.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I added a 2-1/4" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock that I textured using the "Eyelet Lace" embossing folder.  I taped it in place on top of the card base.

I cut one of the printed circles from the Paper Pumpkin kit and I added half of a doily to the back of it.  I tape that in place on top of the Bermuda Bay piece.  I didn't press the tape down on the upper edge, I needed it lifted so I could add the other elements.

I took two of those colored flowery vellum images and added some glue dots to the back and tucked them in under the Bermuda Bay piece. 

Next I took a few of the leaf sets from the kit and colored the back using the dark Blends Pen.  I cut them from the stem and used a glue dot to set them in place.  

This is when I added the words. I set my card in my Stamparatus and placed the heavy duty magnet on top and stamped the words from the "Here's a Card" set using Bermuda Bay ink.

Then I added a few glue dots in a line along the center edge of the circle and began adding some of the linen thread that came with the kit.  

I took the ribbon from the kit and took two lengths and tied a bow.  I spread the bow a little to make it look wider.  A single piece bow was too thin looking.  I set that bow in place using three glue dots. I wanted to make sure it stuck and also that it would help the threads stick.

And for the final touch, I added some stick on sequins from the kit.  There's SO many in there and SO many left.

And that was it.  I really like the way this card looks.  I had fun making it too!  Plus I made it myself. I didn't copy it from anyone!!!  I still have it (actually, I think I'm getting it back!)  YAY!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
