This month's kit is fun and bright.  I love the colors, but it's just a little too busy for me.  That's why I like to create alternative cards, so they represent my style a little better.

Here's three alternative ideas  using the A Kit In Color Paper Pumpkin kit...

How'd She DO That? Oh Happy Day Rainbow card:

  • This card elements are all from the kit.
  • The card base is 11" x 4-1/4" Whisper White Thick cardstock.

How'd She DO That? Hey Fun Fold Card:

  • Trim off 1-1/2" from right edge of rainbow striped card.
  • Trim off 3/4" from patterned edge of Just Jade card and adhere to flap of striped card.
  • Fold the cloud die cut on the right edge.  Stamp sentiment on larger left side.  Adhere the smaller folded edge to back of card. 
  • Wrap twine around cloud and tie in a bow.
  • Add Puffy stickers

How'd She DO That? Quick & Cute Happy Day card:

  • Trim off strips from printed cards (1/2" x 4-1/2" striped, 5/8" x 4-1/2" Just Jade).  Trim left edges at a diagonal and adhere to Purple Posy card (from kit)
  • Stamp sentiment on back side of yellow banner from the kit.  Adhere to card with Dimensionals.
  • Cut flower from Magenta Madness cardstock (new In Color coming June 3), with Small Bloom Punch.  Adhere with glue dot to sentiment banner.  Add Puffy stick to center.
