Last week, while I was home caring for my sick little guy, a surprise arrived in the mail… My Paper Pumpkin! It is always fun to see what’s in the box. And, it was nice to have a simple project that I could work on while he was napping!
I have to say I love this month’s kit. It came with enough supplies to create four large cards and four small cards plus some super cute envelopes to match. There were also extra die cut sheets and banners that I can use for another project (also nice in case you make a mistake).
The kit includes everything you need… card bases, banners, stamps, ink, adhesive, envelopes, embellishments. The only thing I had to provide was a pair of scissors. Another nice thing about this kit is that it covered many different occasions: friendship, congratulations, birthday, and thank you! 🙂
The kit includes a cute little circle stamp perfect for making the small polka dots on the white die cut panel. However, after stamping small polka dots on three of the cards, I decided to pull out my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and play with it instead. I love the effect, and I have to admit it went much faster than the individual polka-dots.
Check out the cute envelopes that came with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. The large cards came with pink and yellow solid envelopes, but the smaller cards had cute polka-dots and stars on them! The small cards are just the perfect size to put on top of a gift too! For the smaller cards, I used the And Many More stamp set to change up the greetings.
