Thank You Card, Friendship Card, Congratulations Card, August 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

I was sitting at my worktable looking at the August 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit thinking that I've only made two cards from it.  Well, if you think about it, I have only used supplies for 1-1/2 cards.  UGH, I'll never get through the box at this rate!  I would REALLY like to use up all the cards in one kit before the next one arrives.  That's my goal anyway.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. Then I took a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Pacific Point card stock and I took my 1-3/8" circle punch and I slipped the corners inside the punch and punched them so I had rounded corners. I don't have the latest corner rounder. I have several retied ones and I decided I'm not going to buy any more corner punches. I'll just use circle punches. I taped the Pacific Point piece to the card base.

I cut  a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White and rounded the top right and bottom left corners. 

I cut one of the cards from the August 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit at 2-1/2" x 3-3/4". I also rounded the top right and bottom left corners. I taped this piece to the Whisper White piece, making sure I had the rounded corners on the same side. 

A 2" x 3" piece of Whisper White was cut for the small layer on the left of the card. I took a piece of the Pacific Point ribbon that was in the kit and I taped the ends to the back of this piece. Then I glued this piece to the last two layers I had made. Make sure you don't glue on the left side or you will have issues you don't want to deal with right now.  And no, I did not do that. I didn't get my corners matched!!  LOL  

The kit has some fun vellum leaves/branches, so I took one of those and stuck it to the ribbon using a glue dot.

The round ribbon image was stamped using Pacific Point ink. I fussy cut it out. Then I die cut a small stitched circle from some Pacific Point. I had some scrap but if you don't have any, you can die cut it from the layer before you tape it to the card base.

I stamped the words from the kit using Pacific Point ink and taped them to the circle. Then I set the circle layers in place using Dimensionals. 

Dimensionals were added to the back of the round ribbon piece and it was set in place on top of the vellum branch. 

Then that whole piece was taped to the Pacific Point piece.  And the card was done.

It was a fun way to use the kit pieces to make an alternative card. And I do like how it turned out. This is a fun layout to play with too.

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