It has been weeks since I received July's Paper Pumpkin kit, and at the end of last week, I finally cracked it open to look at all the pieces and parts. It was time to come up with my alternate project to use at my Paper Pumpkin Party, which I held tonight (much later than usual, by the way). Typically I open it all up, punch out all the pieces, and lay everything out on the table and stare at it. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and from lots of places. Typically this works. Look at the pieces and the stamp set, and dream up something fabulous to share with my Paper Pumpkin subscribers. Then we meet on Zoom to make the project together.
This time was different, though. This time I was on a time crunch and needed someone else's inspiration to put my mind in the right direction. So off to Pinterest I went. I did a search for July 2020 Paper Pumpkin and found some ideas that in my brain I could meld into a fun project that my attendees would love as much as I would. So here I want to publicly thank demonstrators Melissa Davies, Tricia Butts, and Debbie Henderson for helping me find my Paper Pumpkin mojo.
What I came up with was a 3 1/2" x 5" notecard that fits right into our envelopes from our Notecards & Envelopes pack. It's a fun and unique easel card that will brighten any face of the person who opens that envelope. So here it is...my three-card-melded beauty!
This card uses a 3 1/2" x 10" piece of Thick Whisper White card stock scored at 2 1/2" and 5", a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 1/2" x 3" for just under the rim of the jar, and a piece of 18" or so of Pool Party Ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack. The rest of the supplies all come from the July Paper Pumpkin kit, Summer Nights!
For full instructions, head to my YouTube channel Friday, where I will post a video tutorial. I'll be sharing that video here on my blog, as well, along with information about September's fantastic Paper Pumpkin kit. Have you never tried Paper Pumpkin? Why not start now?
