Beyond the Horizon

March's Paper Pumpkin kit is simply beautiful. Coordinating with the On the Horizon Suite from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog, this kit has some fabulous features and so many pieces with which to work! The three cards we can make with the contents of the kit are just gorgeous.



When I went to make my alternate project for this kit, I had so many choices of pieces to use, that I didn't have to use much of anything on my card, except the kit's contents. Just one large scrap of Basic White cardstock, my trimmer, and adhesives were needed in addition to the kit contents...and even a need for adhesives other than what's in the kit (glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals) is debatable.


Here are the items from the kit I decided to use for my project:



  • Card base with a chevron front

  • Pale Papaya envelope

  • Floral stamps set

  • Misty Moonlight Stampin' Spot

  • Pale Papaya label

  • White label

  • Leaf

  • Pale Papaya ribbon

  • Iridescent Rhinestones

  • Glue Dots

  • Stampin' Dimensionals

Here is my final product. Beautiful, and it's all because this kit is, well...just that.



First, I stamped my sentiment on the white label and stamped the flowers on a scrap of Basic White cardstock. I stamped both with the Misty Moonlight Stampin' Spot included in the kit. I did fussy cut the flowers, leaving the two together when I cut, and cutting the other little flower out on its own.


I then cut the chevron patterned card in half, so that I had a piece of white cardstock that measured 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" - the size of a card base. I cut the chevron part of the card into a piece measuring 3 1/4" x 5", scoring 3/4" from one of the short ends. This required me to cut 1/2" off of three of the sides.



I adhered just the 3/4" flap from the chevron piece to the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base to create a fun fold. From the envelope, I cut a piece measuring 5 1/4" x 4" so that it would layer perfectly on the card base and covers the attached flap.



Decorating the front of the card was the icing on the cake - my favorite part!
