Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit…

As is so often the case I am a little late to the party here, but I can safely say that I am LOVING working with the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit. If you don’t already have this in your Christmas loving hands I seriously recommend that you get it while stocks still last – I don’t think it will be long before this sells out.

I happened to have the kit on my desk when I stumbled across this weeks Global Design Project challenge, #GDP268. The link to the page is at the bottom of this post, but how stunning is this card by Charlet Mallett.

I knew straight away that the Paper Pumpkin kit would be the perfect thing to use to CASE this card, so I got working straight away. There are so many elements in the kit, I played about with several idea until I settled on this, choosing the ‘less is more’ approach this time.

You can just about see in the photo, the Whisper White layer is embossed using the Scripty 3D embossing folder. It adds just enough interest whilst still leaving the focus on the main wreath and greetings. On that note, you may notice the greeting is in French, well that is because the kit comes with sentiments in French, English and German, and I was running out of the English ones I had made so many cards!

The contents of the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit

You get a lot of different elements in this kit, card bases, a stamp set, ink spot, die cut pieces, embossed layers, twine, envelopes and adhesives. It really is an all inclusive kit – and all for £20! You can get yours simply by clicking HERE.

Do you see the ‘patterned paper’? Well, I will let you into a little secret – that comes from one of the envelopes, believe it or not!! The sentiment is heat embossed onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and the Cherry Cobbler twine has been supplemented with some gold twine from the Forever Greenery combo pack. Stunning.
