Thanksgiving Card, Thank You Card, September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Cards

Today I'm going to share with you two cards from the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. This kit has the most pieces of any kit I have ever gotten. There's SO many possibilities for cards in this kit too. I don't plan on using all the pieces in the kit but I do plan on making at least 10 different cards from it. The pieces are for party favors. I don't need any party favors so I'm designing and finding other cards to make using the pieces.  Here's what I came up with today.  The one with the Whisper White background was found on the internet but I can't find where it originated from. And the one with the  Mossy Meadow background was one I came up with.

To make the one with the Whisper White background you will need to cut a half sheet of Whisper White card stock.  It was cut on the 8-1/2" side so before folding it measures 4-1/4" x 11".  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.  

You will need to cut the scalloped piece from the ends of the party favor. Mine were left over from another card I had made. I haven't thrown anything away (yet).  You will need it to be the length of 4 scored sections. Don't cut the sections apart, keep them as one piece.  

I set the scored piece on top of the card so I could see where to stamp the words. The words are from the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. They were stamped with Cajun Craze ink that came with the kit. After stamping the words I taped the scalloped piece in place.

Then I added some tape to the center of one of the lacy rectangle pieces. And I set that on top of the scalloped piece. Then I added a little tape so I could adhere the curly Mossy Meadow piece. 

The two flowers were added to each side of the lacy piece and the pumpkins piece was set in place using Dimensionals. A white Baker's Twine bow was tied and set in place with a glue dot and the and was done.  This was such a quick and simple card to make. I love all the elements in the card. It's quick and clean.

I had an issue trying to get two photos on the blog at the same time. I could get the photos on there but there was a big gap in the wording so I'm going to have to create two posts.  I'm sure you won't mind the bonus post!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,                                                                                                Wanda

I don't subscribe to the Paper Pumpkin kits, but I love seeing your cards anyway because they can still serve as inspiration from items I do have. I love both of these cards. Keep them coming.
