August 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Children's Card

I thought I should play with the August 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit before the next one rolls in.  It seems like these things come so quickly. I haven't finished the last months one. I haven't finished the last few months worth. I need to get busy and get them done and get the boxes out of my workroom. They are starting to stack up. Some of the kits I find not as fun as other kits. It's kind of hit or miss but I can always find something on Pinterest that is made using the kit. I have even come with stuff on my own too!  I know, hard to believe!  LOL  Today's card is right from the kit. There's also a shaker card in the kit, you can make three of them and the other card is a ribbon image with a foil circle with words in the middle. It's my least favorite. I may end up coming up with something different for that one.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. Not in the kit. I cut the green plaid card in half. It was printed on both sides and I figured if I cut it to 4" x 5-1/4" I could make two cards from the one. So I will be coming up with something on my own because I will have lots of half cards left!!!

The rectangle piece was added, it's a die cut from the kit. It was set in place using Dimensionals.

I cut the ribbon from the kit to fit across the rectangle piece. 

I taped the vellum leaves in place. I taped them where they wouldn't show because tape shows through vellum. 

I punched out the trophy and stamped the words on it using the Pacific Point ink that came in the kit. 

There's labels in the kit and I took the smallest one and stamped the word "kid" on it and set it in place using Dimensionals. 

Dimensionals were added to the trophy and set in place on top of the ribbon and vellum pieces. 

Star sequins came with the kit and I glued them in place. There's glue dots in the kit but I prefer to use glue. And that was it. The card was done.  I'm not so thrilled with it but it's not that bad either. I want to look for the word "father" and make up the other two for Father's Day. There's also "friend", "teacher", and "coach" stamps too. There's a "You're the Best" stamp too that would be great with the ribbon looking card.  I will be playing with those this weekend so I can use up the stuff in the kit and have an empty box.  First time in many months!!!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by,                                                                                      Wanda
