PPP Blog Hop Joy to the World

Hello friends and WELCOME to our monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop to share alternate design ideas for our monthly subscription craft box.

The October Paper Pumpkin kit Joy to the World is planned for 2 designs and makes 4 cards for each design.  There is beautiful gold foil die cuts and printed die cuts.  This kit is extra special as it includes gold foil die cuts in English, French, and German so that it can be sent to share joy all around the world!

I took one of the card designs started with cutting the card base.
My first alternate design is an ornament.  I cut the card base in half.  Then I cut the card front in half to have 2 rectangles that I glued together to make an identical front and back.

I cut the white embossed piece also in half so that I could make a matching front and back.  Everything for this original card design was a good fit to make a front and back for the ornament.  I hole punched the top and added the twine as a tree hanger.

My next design idea was to use the back piece of the card base and decided to make gift tags.  The card base is a European card base size which is a bit bigger than our US A2 card base.  I cut it into quarters which made 4 nice rectangles.

I used the Just Jade ink to stamp the floral image randomly and pulled out my Cherry Cobbler ink to add the berries.

I also used some small scraps of Whisper White card stock to stamp the word "Joy" with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Pad. 

A hole punch and some loops of Linen Thread  for each tag was the final touch.  I'll write the to & from names on the back of the tag and be ready for attaching to a gift!  I hope you really enjoy this kit and all of the creativity that you can have with your Joy to the World kit!  Now join me to hop over to Cheryl's blog and her adorable project, click on the Pumpkin below:
