Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

The one great thing about the Paper Pumpkin kit is thinking outside the box. I used the products from the March "Pocketful of Cheer" kit to make this beautiful card for Administrative  Professional's Day.

Triple Time Stamping © STAMPIN’ UP! ENG 2016

This is my take on  a card I CASEd  from "DO Stamping with Dawn". I really like the effect the triple design gives my card.

I decided to create a birthday card with this technique using the 2016-2018 colors. All the instructions and pictures are listed below. I hope you enjoy this project.



Cut all pieces according to sizes listed below.

Flirty Flamingo
2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
3-1/4" x 4-1/2"
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (fold for card base)
Whisper White
2" x 3-1/4"
3" x 4-1/4"
4" x 5-1/4"
Place white cardstock as shown below.
Stamp " Flower Shop" image on white cardstock using Flirty Flamingo ink pad. 
Stamp "Birthday Blossoms" sentiment on 2" x 3-1/4" whisper white cardstock.
Once stamping has been completed separate white cardstock pieces.
Base layer:
Attach 4" x 5-1/4" white cardstock to flirty flamingo card base with adhesive.
Layer 2
Attach 3" x 4-1/4" white cardstock to flirty flamingo piece 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" with adhesive.
Layer 1.
Attach 2" x 3-1/4" white cardstock to flirty flaming piece 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" with adhesive.

Attach layer 2 to base layer with adhesive. To give card the raised look use four dimensionals to attach layer 1 to layer 2.
