My Wonderful Family Alternates

I really enjoyed creating alternates of April's Paper Pumpkin "My Wonderful Family."  I was assigned to submit my designs to the Paper Pumpkin department live video in April.

I made a fancy fold card featuring our Nested Labels Dies.  I created cherry blossoms on my tree.

There are triangles at both ends of the single layer card base.  These hold the stamped tree layer in place. One end is glued together the top end is held closed with the ribbon.

Inside is a pink background layer and a greeting layer for a hand-written note.

Next I made card with only the kit supplies but I changed it up for a unique look. I used the branch die cut negative and sponged it into a tree.

I used the tiny butterfly stamp to create a trailing streamer effect in full ink and stamped off for an airy effect.

Every kit has a chipboard layer inside the shrink-wrap.  I used the full piece of chip board as my base for my door hanger.  A sheet of Whisper White card stock was cut and scored to wrap around the chip board.  Then I covered the back with another piece of Whisper White card stock to cover all the wrapped edges and create a clean look.

I stamped the tree image repeatedly into a circle to create a wreathe.  I also stamped multiple extra images that I layered beneath the circle to create more fullness.  You can see I used a Layered Circle die to cut out the center.  But I did fussy cut around the exterior of the stamped image.  I added some butterflies and pearls to step up my design.  The sentiment label and layers were from the kit.   I punched holes with my heavy duty crop-a-dile and threaded the Braided Burlap Twine into the holes to create the hanger and tied the ends into a bow in the front.  I did knot the back so that it doesn't slide around.
