The Peaceful Christmas Paper Pumpkin kit for October is packed full of holiday goodness! The main color is Shaded Spruce. Accents of silver add a beautiful shimmer to the cards.
I chose to make the cards in the kit as directed. They are lovely! My alternative cards use the stamps from the kit. Additionally, I used the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper. But you could substitute any DSP that you have in your craft stash to recreate my cards.
More Peaceful Christmas Cards
The card that is featured at the top of the blog is my favorite. I used our White Craft Ink to stamp a background on Basic Gray cardstock. The small snowflakes around the sentiment were heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder. But getting to use the Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon really made my heart happy! It is just so dreamy to work with.
On this card, I used the tree image stamp to create a border on Basic Gray Cardstock. The silver embossing makes the trees pop right off the page!
I had some leftover paper that I had stamped with the White Craft Ink. So, I cut that down into 1″ strips along with some leftover DSP. I adhered these strips to a Basic White layer of cardstock that measures 3 3/4″ x 5″. Then I added this layer to a piece of Silver Foil Specialty Paper. Before adhering this layer, I added some Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon. I then added this layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
