April 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

This months Paper Pumpkin Alternatives were so much fun to make. I'm so excited to share this with you all. Quick note, don't forget to sign up for May's Paper Pumpkin so you can receive your free gift from me. 

See my previous blog post here for the details. 

Card #1

This card came out so cute. I loved that I decided to do a smaller card instead of your standard sized card. I went with a 4x4 size and it worked perfectly. 

Card Base is 8 x 4 and scored a 4 inches. 
The strips used are 1 x 4 inches. 
I used the largest layering circle dies and the largest scalloped circles for the tree. 
I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and Crumb Cake for the tree. 
I used Mint Macaron for the sentiment. 
Added a bird and enamel dots as well as linen thread for a bow. 

Card #2

This one is kinda my favorite. It's a masculine card that I wouldn't normally do but am so glad I did. 

Card Base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. 
I cut the Shades Spruce strips at 3/4 x 4. The Crush Curry ones are already cut but if you need more they are 1/2 x 4. 
I stamped the sentiment with Shaded Spruce and Crushed Curry. 

Card #3

The perfect Mother's Day Card. I loved how this came out. I would match so nicely to some flowers for mom too. 

Card Base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
Soft Sea foam is cut at 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 and embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. 
The colors I used are Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather. 
I attached the leaves together but only at the bottom so that when you add your flowers you can move the leaves around. 
I made a bow using the Melon Mambo ribbon provided and added the enamel dots. 

Hope you enjoyed my alternatives.
Don't forget to sign up for next months.
