Forever Fern, Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card

I'm hoping this is the last card I post using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. I'm sure you are too!! LOL It's been a fun kit and I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of the November kit. I have heard some people have gotten theirs. I received an email stating that it was shipped but I have not looked to see when it will be arriving. I usually count about 10 days and it's here.  So here's today's card. I think of all the cards I've made from the kit, this one is my favorite.  I can't find the site where I copied this card from but it's pretty close.  Except for the ribbon, the edges of the word piece, the leaves and Wink of Stella. I had shut my computer down before I saved the image so I don't have a link for you to see it.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece off the front of one of the cards from the kit.  And I cut a 2-3/8" x 5-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) that was sitting on my worktable. I do not recall what package it was from. It's got gold dashes on it so I thought it would work with this piece. You can always use just a plain piece of Whisper White or you can texture a piece too.  And there's always the option of gold embossing on it. So there's several ways to fill in that side. I taped those two pieces to the front of the card. 

I had some thin gold ribbon so I taped it on the spot where the two pieces of DSP/card stock met.

I die cut a Cherry Cobbler rectangle piece using the "Ornate Layers" dies.  I taped it on top of the piece on the left side of the card. I added some Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, and white glitter paper leaves from the "Forever Fern" bundle and I taped them down on the upper part of the "Ornate Layers" rectangle piece.  The original card used some other dies for the leaves. I didn't have those dies so I used the ones from the "Forever Fern" bundle and it worked, it looks good to me.

I added the die cut flower from the Paper Pumpkin kit using Dimensionals.  

Then I stamped the words from the kit using Cherry Cobbler ink. I stamped them on one of the stitched rectangles that came in the kit. I die cut a gold label from the left over gold sheet. I had to cut the ends of it separately because there wasn't enough gold to make a whole label. But I only needed the ends and if I had cut a whole label I'd be cutting it in half to tape to the ends.

I taped the gold pieces to the ends of the word piece and that was set in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.  And the card was finished.

This was the most fun I had making the cards from this kit. I had fun with all of them but this one was the most fun. I love the colors here and how rich looking it is.

The original card used some other dies for the leaves. I didn't have those dies so I used the ones from the "Forever Fern" bundle.  

My November Paper Pumpkin kit arrived today so this is probably the last card from the October set that I will be making.  Maybe!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today and have a look,
