I just wanted to share with you 2 alternative cards you can make using all of the supplies in the February 2019 Grown with Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit. You do not need anything additional to make these! Unless you want to use your own adhesive.
Card #1: (The one on the left)
Items you will use:
1 Black Card Base
1 Piece of vellum, 1 Sheet of the succulents in the cups, 1 Sheet of the succulents
Let’s start with the first card and the measurements. I’m just keeping this high level, so if you would like the step by step, please check out my You Tube video HERE.
First you’ll cut the top off of the coffee cup succulent paper right at the top of the skinny cactus in the brown cup. Cut the white part off so that piece will be 2″ x 1-7/8″. Save the other pieces with the little bit of green on it for the #2 card. Then turn it and cut it down the middle of that same cactus so that piece will be 3″ tall by 1-3/8″. Next cut the succulent paper into 3 sizes, 1-6/8″ x 1-3/8″, 2″ x 1-1/2″ and 2″ x 1-1/4″. Stamp your sentiment on the white piece in Fresh Fig. Then adhere all of the pieces cut as shown with the adhesive dots or a tape runner to the piece of vellum. Then turn it over and only put adhesive on the backs of where the paper is, so none of the glue will show through the vellum. Then you can adhere the vellum to the black card stock. Add 3 of the clear enamel dots and you are done!
For Card #2:
Items you will use:
1 white card base, 1 piece of gray card stock, plus 1 other piece of gray,
1 Sheet of the succulents in the cups, 1 Sheet of the succulents
Stamp your sentiment on the white square that we set aside from Card #1. Adhere it to the gray card stock and cut around it. Just leave about 1/4″ border around it. Then you will cut 4 pieces of the succulent paper all the same size, 2-1/2″ x 1-3/8″. Adhere those evenly to the larger piece of gray card stock. Then tie the white baker’s twine around the back and adhere. I usually make a separate bow and then adhere that to the front with a glue dot. Adhere 3 clear enamel dots and then you are done!
I hope you enjoyed making these cards as much as I enjoyed making the tutorials!
