July Paper Pumpkin-Alternative Card

  Hi everyone!  Today I’m featuring a card I made with the July paper pumpkin kit.  The stamps are cute and feature a “sparkle theme”.  The bottom of the card was material from the kit and I used some shinney copper paper I had.  I also used the shinney copper paper and used the swirly bird thinlet for a backround to the greeting paper.  I used some copper tinsel type material to divide the two papers and used the diamond stamp on the shinney copper stamped in an old color, dusty durango.  I embossed the “brilliant” word in copper which is available in this years catalog.  Stampin Up also offers copper thread this year which would also look nice with this card.  The greeting and the bling on the tag are both stamps in the set included in this months kit.  As a final touch, I took a pearl and colored it with a copper sharpie.  This was a fun card to make and I love the copper.  Besides the intended projects, it is so fun to think of alternative ideas each month that can be made from the kits.
