Itty Bitty Greetings, Life is Beautiful, Thank You Card, September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

I had found this card in an email I received from signing up for emails. I thought this card was a great way to use the lacy pieces in the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. It seems like I've made so many cards from this kit and yet there's a ton of pieces left.  I have a link to the original card. Click here to see it. I pretty much copied it like the original.

The base of my 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. This is the focal piece and I did not tape it on the card base until I was done.

The first thing I did was stamp the splatter images. I didn't have the one used in the original card but I did find this one in the "Life is Beautiful" set. I stamped them several times using Daffodil Delight ink. 

Then I taped two of the lacy piece in place. I only added tape down the center because I knew the twine would cover any that showed through.  The twine was wrapped around the piece three times and the ends were taped on the back with transparent tape. Now it was fine for the focal piece to be taped in place on the card base.

I took some copper thread and wrapped it around my fingers several times and taped the piece to the front of the card. It's taped very close to the top edge of the lacy piece

Next the pumpkins were set in place with Dimensionals. Don't press them down yet, you might need to slip a leaf or curly piece behind them. I glued the leaves and curly pieces behind the pumpkins. Then I pressed the pumpkins down.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on the backside of one of the small label pieces from the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. And that was it.

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make. It's a good card for Thanksgiving or a fall thank you card.

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