Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop The Adventure Begins

Hello friends and welcome to the July Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  The Adventure Begins was the July Paper Pumpkin Kit and it included amazing tri-fold cards with outdoor adventure themes.  The photo below shows the cards following the kit's design.

Tonight we are featuring many possible alternate designs for your "The Adventure Begins" kit.  Our team wants to inspire you and help you create "outside of the box" (pun intended).

I wanted to make my mountain scene into a shaker card and the window seemed the natural layout to take this into a technique card.  And I sponged the interior with a special stencil!

I've included some tips on how how I created my card:
