Paper Pumpking Pop-up Blog Hop - Picnic Paradise


Paper Pumpkin Alternative
Picnic Paradise (July 2018) 

Today I am hoppin’ along with the Paper Pumpkin Pop-up Blog Group to celebrate the 50% OFF New Subscribers promotion from Stampin’ Up! by using code BLOOM0818. If you’ve never tried this awesome monthly crafting delivery subscription before – you’re in luck!  This promotion is made for you! 


This month’s projects are so adorable and are perfect to use with a little Thank You card and/or gift when you go to one of the inevitable barbeques we all get invited to this time of year.  
 
 Add a gift card and they would also make a great gift for the kid down the street who cuts your lawn, the person who cuts your hair, does your mani-pedi, walks your dog….well, the list is endless.



Today, however, is about what else you can do with your Paper Pumpkin Kit this month.  I like the little gift cards; however, I know that we don’t always need a 3” x 3” card so, my alternative takes the pieces in the kit to create this full-size card.

The card base is made with Thick Whisper White card stock.  The Lemon Lime Twist plaid is from the tissue papers that came from the kit. I used the included stamps to decorate the front of the envelope. I had enough of the tissue paper left from the card front sheet to line the top part of the envelope.  I used the die available in the Beautiful Layers Thinlits set.
The Poppy Parade plaid (shown in Lemon Lime Twist) is from the inside of the 3" envelopes that came from the kit.  I took it apart carefully then cut what I needed, 2.75" squared, and then used snips to fussy cut the label from the front of the same envelope.
 
To wrap the Bakers Twine around the card front I needed a small hole to push the twine through (I recommend a beader's needle).  Once you pull a 3 or 4 rows through it the hole will not be visible from the front of the card.

The video below shows a variation on a previous kit.  I hope you enjoy the ideas in this one as well.
