Welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop. At the end of my post, I will have a listing of the names of all of my teammates participating this month and you can visit each one of us. This month, our Haunts & Harvest Kit was all about these super adorable pumpkins and apples:
I created one of each to show you the cuteness:
Below you will find my alternative project using some of the layers included in the box this month. I used three leaves and cut up a few of the pumpkins into individual strips to use as a background on top of my layers:
This is called a Side Easel Card Fold. The hexagon shape is glued in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals so that it is raised and holds the folded portion of the card in place. And the card folds flat as you can see in the second photo below:
Here are a few more photos so you can see all of the details:
- Card Base: Shaded Spruce Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score at 2-1/8 & 4-1/4″ and fold on both score lines to create the tent on the front.
- Layer #2: (2) Basic White Cardstock pieces 5-1/4″ x 1-7/8″. Set aside.
- Strips: Cut (4) sections on the score lines off of the green pumpkin and (3) sections off of the yellow pumpkin. Cut one long side straight and turn to the opposite side. Cut so that each strip is 3/4″ wide. Cut (1) strip of scrap cardstock 3/4″ wide to use as a spacer. Start at the top of one white strip and glue the yellow strip. Place the cardstock scrap below the yellow strip as a spacer and glue a green strip next. Continue until you have glued 4 strips of color. Trim the sides even and glue to card front. Repeat with the second white layer but start at the top with the spacer first. Glue to second flap when completed.
- Inside Layer: Basic White Cardstock 5-1/4″ x 4″. Glue to the inside of the card.
- Stopper: Cut the hexagon shape from the yellow pumpkin and stamp the sentiment using Shaded Spruce Ink. Glue to the inside right edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Labels: Cut one each using the two large labels from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies with Basic White Cardstock. Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the smaller label using Shaded Spruce Ink. Glue both labels together using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Cut (2) pieces of Basic White Cardstock 1″ x 1″ and fold in half. Glue to the back of the large diecut label as shown in photo 2 below. Press in place. Add adhesive to the two flaps at the top and glue in place on the card front, aligning the fold on the center to the middle of the two pieces of cardstock on the back of the label. This will allow the labels to move with the card as it is opened and closed.
- Leaves: Stamp the leaf detail using the stamp image with Shaded Spruce Ink on three of the diecut leaves. Fold all three leaves in the center vertically. Add glue to half only of one leaf and press a second leaf (white to white) and repeat for the third leaf. Use Paper Snips to trim excess white showing from each leaf. Add adhesive to the back of the leaves and press in place above the sentiment. The leaves will fold flat when needed.
