March Paper Pumpkin!!!! Oh my goodness. I’m having “sew” much fun with this kit! I was so excited to see my little red box in the mailbox that I tossed aside all grand plans for that afternoon and ripped into my Paper Pumpkin box instead.
I followed the directions to make the first card as shown next. I sewed it (which took about 10-12 minutes) and assembled as directed. Super cute! I love the epoxy stickers in this kit. They add such a special detail!
Mount on Colored Cardstock:
Place the punched card on top of colored cardstock and let the holes of the card fill in with that underlying color.
Here’s another version using black cardstock as a backer. I like how this more formal black, white and red card resembles a tuxedo with a red bow tie. Love, love!
Create Stitch Lines with a Marker:
Use the fine point of a marker to connect the dots to resemble stitching. Here I used our Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker. If you pick up the pen after connecting each dot, as opposed to simply tracing over the letters, you will create more of a sewn look.
