Paper Pumpkin

 Hello, crafty friends. Today, I am sharing the alternative ideas I made using the March Paper Pumpkin Kit called Beyond the Horizon.  The kit makes 9 cards (3 each of 3 designs).  I love the simplicity of the kits and the fact that they always have adorable coordinating envelopes. Hence, they  make for great gift giving and/or gift sets.  Here's my slightly altered versions of each card in the kit.

I cut each of the beautiful water colored cards in half and added my own colored cardstock bases and then used the remaining back half piece to complete the inside.

My first alteration focuses on the beautiful mountain scene which highlights the color Misty Moonlight.  As a result, I decided to pair it with a Misty Moonlight card base.
I added a Early Espresso and Old Olive tree using the Beautiful Trees Dies, and some Old Olive grass in the forefront using the Palm Dies.

For my second altered card, I colored the top part of a greenery piece from the kit with a Early Espresso Marker to create cattails and added an Evening Evergreen die cut for my forefront grass.

My third slightly altered card uses the remaining die cut greenery pieces and layout, but I added some Misty Moonlight flowers using the Bough Punch.
So fun and so easy to do with everything being provided in the kit!  If you are unfamiliar with Paper Pumpkin, check out the March Paper Pumpkin Kit video on YouTube HERE and you can sign up for your fun Paper Pumpkin kit HERE
