What I loved about the Add-On this time, it arrived before my kit because we were able to order it early. So when my kit arrived, the Add-On was here for me to use immediately. 20 printed mini boxes and 24 die-cut decorative pieces and sentiment labels were included in the Add-On. Those little snails are adorable!
I used one of the Add-On boxes and cut it up to use as the bottom layer of my card and I also cut up one of the envelopes to use the designer paper pattern on the inside for an additional layer. This card came together rather quickly:
- Card Base: Thick Basic White Cardstock 11″ x 4-1/4″. Score and fold at 5-1/2″.
- Layer #2: Add-On box cut 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″. Glue to the bottom of the card base.
- Layer #3: Glue a black die-cut strip from the kit at the top of Layer #2.
- Stamp the hearts & flowers cluster image starting at the top left down to the bottom right on the white section using Poppy Parade Ink.
- Wrap the ribbon around the white area and tie into a bow at the left.
- Layer #4: Cut open one of the envelopes and cut a section to measure 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. Glue to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Sentiments: Glue one of the Love diecuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a heart embellishment to the “O”. Stamp the YOU on the small diecut rectangle using Poppy Parade Ink and glue to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Just cut a strip from the envelope to wrap around the box as a belly band and decorate the front with layers to match the card. And here is the Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! video for this month:
