A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop is back with this months Paper Pumpkin Kit, Pining for Plaid! When Stampin' Up! announced that this kit would coordinate with November's, I couldn't have been more excited. I was even more excited when I opened up my box! I mean, this is me here and we all know that I want to make a shaker out of ANYTHING and I wasn't fast enough to buy an extra kit or two on Monday!
So excited to be showing you this alternative idea for this months kit... I honestly used it the way it was intended although, I added some extra umph to it!
I honestly love this kit! So my alternative for this month is just some tweaking and extra embellishments. Instead of using the shaker background provided I used the Black and White snowflake patter from the Merry Little Christmas DSP pack. The Old Olive Pine sprigs were made using the Pretty Pines Thinlits as well as the Gold Foil and Basic Black Pine cone that I attached to the card using a Stampin' Dimensional. I cut about a 3/4" strip off of another card base from the kit to create the border on the left with the Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon adorned with a cute little bow. I adhered this onto a Basic Black cardstock matte with the dimensional like strips in the kit and then adhered it to the card base. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink which is what was provided in the kit and was just the right festive touch!
