Wedding Card, Sending Love, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

This card is SO totally different from the other cards I've seen using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. Most of them were Christmas cards but this one is more of a wedding, anniversary or even a Valentine's Day card. I found the card here, it's about 20.5 minutes into the video.  You can see that video here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Blushing Bride card stock.  The card stock was stamped using Calypso Coral ink and the flower stamp from the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. You don't need to stamp the flowers all the way to the top, though I don't think it would matter if you did.

The Calypso Coral strip of card stock was cut 4-`/4" x 1-1/2".  Before you tape the strip in place, set the "love" words on the right so you can see where you need to stamp the "sending" words. They were stamped using Calypso Coral ink.

The flower was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock  using Calypso Coral ink and then fussy cut. I used my Wink of Stella pen to color in the flower. It picks up a bit of the ink too and gives it a soft colored look.

The "love" is from the Paper Pumpkin kit and was set in place using a little bit of glue. Then the panel was set in place on top of the card using double sided tape.

The flower was set in place using a few small Dimensionals.

A 3/8" x 4-1/4" strip of one of the cards from the kit was taped in place just under the Calypso Coral piece and the card was done.

It's a quick, easy and pretty card. I wanted to make this card because I knew I wouldn't be using the "love" from the kit. But when I saw this card I thought it was a perfect opportunity to use "love".  And I have a wedding coming up so it was perfect timing too.

This was a fun card to make and super quick.

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