Stampin' Up Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card I

I had some extra time to play around with Stampin' Up's November Paper Pumpkin Kit called Mistletoe & Holly.  I designed four alternate cards using the items in the kit and some embossing powder and bling-bling from my personal stash.  Here's a picture of the first card:

The only items I added on this card are all the fabulous Stampin' Up bling-bling and some SU Black Emboss Powder for the sentiment..  I had an awful time with my embossing even with using my SU Emboss Buddy.  It just wanted to stick everywhere and there was so much static.

I partial die cut using the two largest SU Lots of Labels Framelits from the lined envelope (Yes - I said the Envelope) in the kit and adhered them vertically at the top of my card base.  
I punched a scalloped oval, from the leftover die cut paper in the kit, with SU's Scallop Oval Punch, stamped the sentiment from the kit with VersaMark and heat embossed it with my SU Heat Tool and SU Black Emboss Powder.

The about picture shows the two cards that I made going by the instructions that come in the kit.

  1. This card looks just like a tux style card. ADORABLE my friend.

  2. Ooh, very nice Lynn. I like how you used the envelope as well! That made some nice DSP. Thanks for sharing at the My Pumpkin Challenge! :)

  3. So cute! Great use of the framelits for your shapes - and you got me - the bling is always awesome! Thanks so much for playing at My Pumpkin Challenge!
