Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin: 2 Alternate Card Ideas
October 08, 2021
Today I have for you, two alternate card ideas using the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin kit.
First up is my Haunts card...
This card is going out to my husband's sister who is a Halloween baby. She enjoys receiving Halloween cards for her birthday. At least that's what my husband tells me - ha! I hope he's right, as that's what she has been getting from us for many years.
- Cut hexagon shape from one of the treat boxes to use for the pumpkin and decorate.
- Use the Take Your Pick Tool to curl about half of a 2" piece of raffia wire. It cuts off very easily. Adhere the "straight" end behind the pumpkin with several glue dots, along with the leaf.
- Adhere the completed pumpkin to the card with "double stacked" Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Pumpkin Pie 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base, Basic White 4" x 5-1/4", Black Glitter Paper 2-1/2" square
Next is my Harvest card...
The leaf stamps that come with the kit are my favorite and I had to use them! I love the way this card turned out. It's so soft and pretty, and easy to make. Some of my customers will be receiving this Thank You card...are you one of them?
- Stamp detailed leaf image first with Evening Evergreen as shown. Stamp off every other leaf.
- Then repeat with the solid leaf image with Soft Succulent. Stamp off every other leaf.
- For the piece behind the label - trim off a section of a treat box. The trim off the bottom flap and both sides so they are flat. The piece will measure approx. 3/4" x 3-1/2" with the end rounded.
