Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop - April 2022

Good morning friends! Are you ready for another dose of Paper Pumpkin?  Today, we're joining the Crafty Collaborations Crew for our monthly Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!

I have another fun alternative project to share with you today! YAY!

This time, I'm taking apart one of the fancy fold card bases.  I'm going to use the biggest section for my card front here.  Of course, I'm not throwing away the other two sections. I'll use those for something else. :-D 

That's the beauty of Paper Pumpkin! If you want to follow the kit instructions, you can and you'll end up with gorgeous projects! If you want to go out on a limb and use the supplies in the kit for something new and unique, you absolutely can! And, you'll end up with a beautiful original project! The choice is yours and the possibilities are endless!!

For this card, I started with a Melon Mambo Card Base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4").  I added a 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" layer of Granny Apple Green Cardstock to the front and then layered the card section (cut to 5 1/4" x 4") on top.  

From here, I grabbed a scrap of Basic White Cardstock and stamped the butterflies and caterpillar. Fussy cutting them out was pretty simple.  

I used the Tasteful Labels Dies to cut the Granny Apple Green Banner.   The sentiment was stamped in Crushed Curry ink and the cut close to the words, so that it would fit on the banner.  I added Stampin' Dimensionals between each layer of the banner.  

The Butterflies were all added with Stampin' Dimensionals as well, after I rolled the wings with my bone folder.  It really adds some nice texture and dimension to the card!
