Sending You Thoughts, August 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card, Thank You Card

I found this card on Pinterest and was SO excited to make it. It was a perfect way to use the images from the August Paper Pumpkin kit. A great alternative card. You can see the original card here but there is no link to who made it or where it came from other than Pinterest. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

The card from the kit was cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and then cut at an angle, but not tip to tip, there was about a 1/2" on the top before the cut started.  Now that I look at this, I should have just followed that yellow line to the bottom instead of to the corner. I didn't look at the original card hard enough.  Now you know so you can make that cut a straight line.  But it is still a cool looking card so I'm leaving it the way it is.

The round ribbon image was stamped on the Whisper White piece using the Pacific Point ink that came with the kit. And I stamped one on a separate piece of card stock for the top image.

The words are from the "Sending you Thoughts" set. They were also stamped on Whisper White card stock using Pacific Point ink. They were trimmed to 1" x 3/8".

The words and the ribbon piece were die cut using the "Layering Circles" dies. I used the smallest for the words, the ribbon was die cut with the 5th smallest, and the Pacific Point piece was die cut using the 6th smallest die.  I taped the ribbon circle to the Pacific Point circle. The word circle was added using Dimensionals.

I cut the Pacific Point ribbon from the kit to 4" long and I clipped both ends. 

A 3-1/4" x 3/4" piece of gold foil card stock was cut and the ends clipped. 

The ribbon was taped to the front of the card and then the gold strip was taped to the top of that. The circle was then set in place on top of the ribbon piece. The "thanks" was taped on top of the stamped round ribbon piece. 

Two gold stars from the kit were glued in place and the card was done.

My card is opposite of the original because I wasn't paying attention (again) to the way I was cutting it. But it still worked out and I like how it looks.

This was a fun card to make and I'm happy the way it turned out.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
