I love making fun fold cards! And this one is no exception. It actually looks very complicated. However, it is very simple to make. The first thing I love about this card is that I can showcase three different DSP patterns. Secondly, there is a lot of space for stamping. Lastly, the cute little cut out detail on the spine.

Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin Alternative

I cannot believe it is Paper Pumpkin week already. It was so much fun making this Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin alternative. I usually do an alternative card with items in the kit, but I am obsessed with the snail stamp!

Another Sweet Snail Card

Both of the cards feature layers that I created using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. They both begin with a Gray Granite layer adhered directly to the Basic White Thick card base. The first card features a smaller Petal Pink layer and the second card was made with a Misty Moonlight cardstock layer. I stamped random images from the stamp set on Basic White cardstock in the same color ink.

Next, I stamped both greetings using Basic Gray ink. I felt like black ink would be too harsh. Then, I glued the stamped and colored layers together. I wrapped it with the white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack. I tied a small bow then added this layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

After making the second card, I realized that I must have grabbed a Night of Navy piece of cardstock instead of Misty Moonlight. But either one works. Add both the sentiments using your favorite adhesive.

The snail image was stamped on Basic White Thick Cardstock using Basic Gray ink and colored using the blends. I used Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight, and Seaside Spray blends to color it. I used a 1 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut it out. It was adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Would the snail not look adorable if you adhered “googlie” eyes?!!

Paper Pumpkin kits are so versatile. The cards in this month’s kit are great as is. I didn’t want to change them. But once the kit is used up, you still own the stamp set. And look at the kinds of cards you can create!

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!
