October 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Idea Number Two: Add Some Texture


I like to make projects that are out-of-the-box, especially when I can use my creativity to come up with alternative uses for the contents that come in each month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit.  However, for one of this month’s cards, I didn’t need to go too crazy.  All I did was add some texture to the background of the “Thanks” card.  Take a look:

I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Background Folder and then assembled the card according to the wonderful instruction brochure that is included with every Paper Pumpkin Kit.

The Paper Pumpkin Kit for October 2015 also includes envelopes that are specially sized to fit the three different sizes of cards that are included in the kit.  I used the Envelopes Liners Framelits Dies to cut fun coordinating envelope liners from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack available in the Annual Catalog.
