October 2021 Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternative Christmas Card

Yesterday when my friend was over with her Paper Pumpkin kits we had made a Christmas card using the tree and packages.  The packages were cut from one of the elements in the kit. It was meant to make a card with the hole lot of packages on the one sheet. But we had cut them apart for yesterday's card and there were packages left. So what do we do with them?  Well, we make another card.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Soft Seafoam card stock that was textured with a snowflake background. You can texture it with whatever background you like. I glued it to the front of the card base.

Next I set out the packages on the front to see where they should go and after a bit of moving them around, this came to be the one we liked the best. They were taped in place. Though I would have preferred glue because of the texture but we ended up taping.

The words are from the same set and were stamped on one of the circles in the kit using black Memento ink. Then they were punched out using the 1-3/4" circle punch.  I die cut a 1-7/8" circle using Flirty Flamingo card stock for the layer and I taped the two circles together. 

Dimensionals were added behind the circles and they were set in place in the upper right corner and the card was done.

This was a fun, quick and easy card to make plus it was a great way to use those extra packages.  

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas card,
