Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card

I just new I had to make this card when I saw it on Pinterest. It's SO pretty and it's an alternative card using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit.  The cards in the kit are nice but not very colorful. This card is bright and cheery.  There's a video for this card but there are really no instructions with measurements. I will provide them as I describe how I put the card together.

First you will need a folded half-sheet of Cherry Cobbler.  

Take one of the envelopes in the kit and trim off the sides and bottom, very close to the sides and bottom. Cut the larger area 4" x 5-1/4". Save the strip that is left over. I did trim mine so I had an evenly cut rectangle for a future card. The envelope piece was taped to the Cherry Cobbler card base.

There are some Whisper White pieces in the kit that are already embossed. I used the rectangle cut piece and taped it on top of the envelope piece.

I took a 1" x 4-1/2" piece of Just Jade card stock and punched the end with the "Triple Banner" punch. Then I stamped the "Merry Christmas" that was in the kit. I used Just Jade ink.  I taped it on top of the Whisper White piece.

Then I took some of the Cherry Cobbler thread that came in the kit and I wrapped it around my fingers to form three circles. I used glue dots to hold the ends in place so I could set it down while I decided where it needed to go. I did set the die cut flower piece over the area to give me an idea of where to affix the thread.  Once the thread was affixed, I added Dimensionals to the die cut piece and set it in place on the front of the card. 

I took some clear dots that I had left over from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit and I added them to the front of the card.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock was taped to the inside of the card and the card was done.

It's SO pretty. I like it a whole lot better than the ones in the kit.

Thank you ever SO much for taking the time to pop in and have a look,                                                  Wanda
