Peaceful Christmas

 The October Paper Pumpkin kit is stunning! I do take issue with the title of the kit only because, if you have young kiddos, Christmas can be anything but peaceful. Alas our kiddos, (and even the g'kids) are all grown now so we are back to peaceful.

The kit comes with ink in a rich green, Shaded Spruce,  a stamp set with elegant trees & snowflakes, and sentiments in a great font. The card bases are beautiful images of snow laden forests & can be easily cut down to create many more cards. 



By adding Basic White card bases, Silver Foil mats & Real Red accents I was able to create sixteen cards - and I'm not finished yet!

Using the versatile Basic Border Dies to cut out the edge of one of the card bases, I added a vellum strip stamped and heat embossed with the snowflake stamp to the inside of the card. I think this is my favourite design -  although I do love the crisp green and white cards as well.


The vellum die-cuts included in the kit are lovely on the dark Shaded Spruce checked mats. Some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon adds a subtle accent with the vellum.



Next month's kit continues with a holiday theme so be sure to sign up before November 10th!
