The thing about the Stampin Up! Paper Pumpkin Kits is that you can design alternate projects with the materials or even with the extra materials in the kit! This kit had such cute and clever Christmas cards and Christmas tags to make, that I didn’t think I could do much better on my own! But I did want to play around a little bit, so these are the extra tags I came up with. The top Happy Holidays tag just has a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper adhered behind the letters. I love the glittery look it gives to the tag! Otherwise, everything else comes from the kit, including the glue dots!
Here is the punched-out snowflake for the designed card, but I put the two halves together and put the greeting across the line where they meet up. You can barely notice at the ends under the greeting where the two halves go together, I could have made the greeting a bit longer, but only a “professional stamper” will notice! I inked the snowflake with Versamark ink and embossed with the Heat Tool and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I did adhere a little Dazzling Diamonds Glitter in a few spots where the Iridescent Ice didn’t stick or emboss well, but it is barely noticeable. The silver foil snowflake in the center comes in the kit, and since I didn’t add it until later, I just cut it in half and adhered both sides slightly underneath the greeting. I also added a few rhinestones from the kit around on the card. Of course the snowflake would have looked just as good just plain!
Look at all the Christmas cards and tags I made with the November 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! And I still have some materials left over!
