Paper Pumpkin – April 2022 – Change is Beautiful

The April Paper Pumpkin is all about celebrating change – whether that is graduation, new baby, new job, weight loss etc… We have all those awkward and exciting moments of change in our lives that deserve some recognition or maybe even some encouraging words to get through the tough parts. These cards are perfect for these occasions. Check out my video below and see my 3 (and a half) alternatives below.

Here are the 3 original kit cards – 2 of them pull open in a fun Z fold.

My first two alternatives use one of the kit card bases added onto some Thick Basic White Cardstock to create two new cards. I cut the front layers using the largest Stitched Rectangle shape – but you can also just trim it down to 4 X 5-1/4″.

My last alternative card(s) also use a Thick Basic White cardstock base and some fun repetitive stamping to create a black and white background.

This card uses the colourful butterfly from the kit.
When you run out of big butterflies – you can stamp the butterfly from the kit stamp set onto a circle and sponge the edges to make it pop.

I hope you enjoyed those cards – I’d love to see your alternative creations. Feel free to post them in the comments of this blog or in the video comments. Don’t forget to subscribe to my You Tube channel so you can catch me live next month.
