Happy Monday!!! Today, I thought I would share the amazing May 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Manly Moments! This kit has me covered for Father’s Day! Thank you, Paper Pumpkin!!!! I was wondering what I could whip up quickly before Ziggy arrived and this came in the mail in May at the perfect time!
These cards are very basic and were easy to assemble. I love the fun fold with it. They aren’t just a regular card but instead the plaid part folds down and then top part folds up. That’s super fun and makes them different. I found that I really liked the starburst image below the greeting. It really makes it stand out and look cool. Do you prefer that or putting “To You” or another greeting like Dad, Son, Brother?? Let me know in the comments below!
Here is an up closer photo of this style. I placed the banner across the badge for stamping placement. I felt this was better than winging it and hoping I got it in the right spot. Some of the bursts are up higher than others but that’s okay! 🙂 Also, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the entire back of the badge and added the banner to the badge with just Snail Adhesive in the middle. The instructions said to put the banner on with dimensionals as well. I thought that might be too high and this way the swag of the banner falls on either side with that dimensional holding it up.
These are my absolute favorite. I love that mountain scene and those trees. I will say the bottom of the card is rather thick with all of the layers but it’s amazing! Super easy to assemble since those pieces were all stickers. I did the greetings the same as the cards above!
Isn’t that texture and dimension of the card just amazing? I love it!!!! Now I am all set for Father’s Day and don’t have to scramble! I love Paper Pumpkin for that. It always sets you up for future holidays/events!
If you would like to try out Paper Pumpkin, click here to sign up for the June Kit before the 10th! You can try it for a month and cancel or enjoy it for many months. It’s all up to you. Either way, I think $20 for stamps, ink, supplies, and a clear block is TOTALLY worth a try! Also, the June Kit will coordinate with the Broadway Bound Suite in the New Catalog so that’s even more fun!!! Who doesn’t love black and white with a pop of color?!?!?!
