Welcome to our team July, A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop. The kit for July is called Picnic Paradise and oh how cute and adorable! If you are not a subscriber, you sure missed a good one! As always, our team creates Alternative Projects using the kit. We all create a card and a 3D item. Take a peek at the two projects I created for this month:
First off is my card. I used our Stampin' Up! Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes to create this cute card with coordinating flap on my envelope:
All I added to the card was a strip of the gingham tissue paper that came with the kit and a few other layers. The tissue paper measures 3-1/4" high and the width of the pre-scored card. I also added a starburst layer that I cut using the card base that came with the kit and the Starburst Punch:
For the sentiment, I used one from the kit and then cut above and below the sentiment to make it skinnier. I added one of the large strawberries and a sticky leaf.
For the envelope I glued some of the tissue paper to the flap and fussy-cut around the flap with my Paper Snips.
Next is my 3D project, I created a smaller treat holder by using the picnic basket layer that came with the kit:
I cut off the two smaller side flaps and then scored in the center and folded the center like you see in Photo 1:
I then added the sticky strips from the kit around the front and back flaps and overlapped the two small scored ends. I also cut one of the smaller strips in half to glue to the inside so the two smaller sections wouldn't be sticky. Here's a side view:
