Oh, the November 2020 Paper Pumpkin “Jolly Gingerbread” was such a fun kit to make alternate projects! Although it was meant to make gift card holders, I had a feeling those houses would be used on cards! I will be sharing some more fun cards and projects in the next few days.
I played Tic-Tac-Toe with The Papers Players 519 this week. I went diagonal from the left top corner- Patterned Paper, Fun/Fancy Fold, and Green- Shaded Spruce to be exact.
I loved all the components of the kit- the puffy candies, the white icing die cut overlays that could be stamped on, and the gingerbread houses. I wanted to show off the sweet gingerbread house stamp in the kit so I put it on the inside of the card. The image has only one chimney so I drew an extra one on so it looked similar to the die cut one in the kit. There is also a cute little curly swirl stamp that can come up from the chimney for smoke or for making some icing swirls. The Daffodil Delight door is so cheerful.
I used a Calypso Coral colored Patterned Paper from the Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper that coordinated with the Calypso Coral and Shaded Spruce puffy candies that made the easel mechanism. The Shaded Spruce was a perfect green to stand out against the subtle colors in the Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
