Oh my goodness! The Stampin' Up! October Paper Pumpkin is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to make more of them. I usually don't make more than one or two of the projects the way they are suppose to be made. I am always changing them or creating something totally different. Not this time! I want to make them just like the kit says to do it.
There are three different layers on this Christmas card that really make this card. You have the base of the card with the two trees and the background colors. Your next layer, popped up with Stampin Dimensionals, is the snow and birch trees. The third layer is the sentiment, also popped up with Stampin Dimensionals.
I had so much fun creating my alternative project, a shadow box. It has been quite a while ago since I created one. I had to go back and read my old blog post to see how to make it. LO If you would like to see it go to Shadow Box.
I started this project with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Night of Navy cardstock.
Mary Ann Rossiter, a fellow demonstrator, had put the directions on Facebook on how to make a shadow box. Here is the picture Mary Ann put on Facebook.
Here is the video I made during my Facebook Live on Monday. I shared how to put the kit together and how to make the frame for the shadow box.
I have a tip for you on how you can get more out of your Paper Pumpkin kit.
If you have the In The Woods dies, you can cut out two more trees from the section that is left over from the birch trees in the kit. You now can make more Christmas cards or cards for other occasions using the trees. I love that they have glitter on them.
In November Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin will have Christmas tags that coordinate with the October kit. Each kit is all inclusive, so you can get one without the other. I have to say, I can't wait to see what the kit is going to be. I bet it is going to be just as beautiful as this one. This kit will have 24 holiday-themed gift tags of 4 various sizes and designs.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!
Happy Stampin and
