Eeeee! I just love these cards! I love the color combination – Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and Bermuda Bay! I love the Bermuda Bay Sequins and I love that they are shaker cards! Super fun!!!! Stampin’ Up sure wows me every month with the My Paper Pumpkin kits! The month of December was even better because of this FREE GIFT in the box!
Who doesn’t love Free Gifts?!?!?! Click here to check out my video of when I opened this kit! I was excited!
Now lets get started! Here are all the goodies that came in the kit! It was really easy to assemble although I do think this kit took a little longer than 30 minutes but I was watching a show while doing it so I was moving a little slow! 🙂 I love that Stampin’ Up included this little toothpick looking tool for poking out all of the little stars. It was perfect and made that tasks super easy!
Another item that I want to point out is the Dimensionals for the back of your shaker frame. I used 2 of the short ones on the top and bottom. I used 2 of the long ones on the sides….be sure to have them touching so you don’t have any leaks on your shaker card. I would hate to have you shake it and watch it fly out and go everywhere! Although that would be like sending a card and one of those Party Poppers in one to someone! 🙂 I felt that the bottom portion needed a little bit of Dimensional or otherwise it would squish down since nothing was there. I used the border and the extras of the pieces to add some down there. You can see that in the photo below….I couldn’t use the flash because of the clear window sheets.
I still had some of the Dimensional pieces leftover in the end! I loved making these cards and while I was taking the words off their sticky paper, I thought I could use these too! So I took the negative image, cut them apart from each other and placed them on a Note Card & Envelope!
How cute are these little simple cards? As you can see the Thank You greeting was diagonal on the sheet in order to fit so I had to cut diagonally. I thought they came out super cute and oh so simple! So I got 18 cards from this My Paper Pumpkin Kit with just adding in 9 Note Cards & Envelopes. That is fabulous work for say an hours time…..and enjoying a show on TV! 🙂
