To You & Yours is the Paper Pumpkin kit for November 2018. The plaid vintage feel papers in the kit certainly hit the spot for me. The die cuts and Baker’s twine included in the kit created a perfect marriage with the printed papers and thus it was super easy to create not just the 10 cards included in the kit but also alternate projects such as those I am sharing today.
This one is the favorite alternate card I created with the To You and Yours kit. The Cherry Cobbler diagonal piece on the left edge is actually the lining of the coordinating lined envelopes included in the kit. Check out the woodgrain circular die cut – a nice touch. And if you were seeing this card in person, you would note that one of the smaller stripes in the printed paper is gold foil.
Another striking alternate. The vellum circles are also part of the kit as are the gold accented banners for the greetings. In fact the greetings in the kit are some of my favorite greeting stamp sets of recent Paper Pumpkins.
- Happy Holidays
- Merry & Bright
- It’s the most wonderful time of the year
- Here’s to a Christmas filled with love, laughter, and all you wish for
- For You
- Merry Christmas to you & Yours
Can I just point out the Cherry Cobbler Baker’s twine? I love that it is a little thicker and doesn’t get lost on the card. It makes a subtle statement on it’s own.
I would LOVE for you to be one of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers. This graphic depicts snippets of tutorials I sent to my Paper Pumpkin customers this month. Yes, they received 8 alternate project tutorials! Most of them were cards but there is one banner that I really enjoyed making!
So simple and easy with the kit! An easy gift that I will be giving.
