Halloween Card, September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

My card today was found on the internet. I wasn't able to find a link to where it came from so (as usual) I winged it with colors and sizes. I think I nailed it!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crushed Curry card stock. This card opens at the bottom and the fold is on the top.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Rich Razzleberry was cut for the layer. I didn't have the spider web embossing folder so I used the "Woodland" one. I taped it to the front of the card.

A 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Crushed Curry was cut and on top of that a 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock was cut.

There's a fun 6" x 6" pack of Designer Series Paper (DSP) called "Plaid Tidings". I have that DSP stack and I found the color used. I cut that piece 4-1/8" x 3/4" and I taped it to the bottom of the Whisper White piece.

The witch hat was taped on next. The original card stamped the hat. I figured I would use one already made. A flower was added to the hat using a glue dot. And I did add a little pumpkin to the hat in the area where the pumpkin is stamped on the hat. That was taped in place.

The features were stamped on the  double pumpkins using black Memento ink. I set the stamps on top of the pumpkins and then set my stamping block on top and pressed down. I inked both up at the same time and stamped them both at the same time.  I set the pumpkins in place using Dimensionals. I didn't press down on them though. I waited because I wanted to see if one of those curly things from the kit would look cute on it. I was going to use the Mossy Meadow color but it kind of got lost on the plaid DSP. The Crushed Curry colored one seemed to look better. It connected the flower in the witch hat to the bottom of the pumpkins. I liked it much better. I slipped it under the Dimensionals that were near it and then I pressed the pumpkins in place. 

I had some purple sequins and I set them in place on the front of the card using small glue dots. I was thrilled that my sequins matched the Rich Razzleberry card stock SO close. If you click on the photo you can see it more up close and personal.  

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.  I thought this alternative card was SO darn cute. Worth of copying and sharing!!

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