Back to Vintage for Paper Pumpkin March 2018

My March Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived late last week and I just got around to putting it together yesterday! It was a special kit, celebrating Paper Pumpkin's 5th Birthday, and it came with a special commemorative box and a free gift to say thank you! The gift was a couple of sheets of cool laser cut wooden embellishments!

It was a bit surprising to me, because it was totally a vintage style of papercrafting in this month's kit! It's been so long since I've done any vintage cards, but I still love the style! So much effort went into making every element look aged! And minimalist it was not! If you take a look at these lovely cards and envelopes you'll get the idea!

  • Although I followed directions for the basic layouts, I did add a little of my own design to the cards, mostly in the form of different sentiments, since I need thank you cards for all the orders coming in the next few days. I also added some Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim to both card design, since it hasn't been getting much love lately and it is so perfect for any vintage project.
  • Since the thank you cards are for customers for orders, I used the Crafting Forever stamp set for one of the sentiments.
  • This kit contains the most unique envelopes ever! One has a vintage rose image on the front with Flower Seeds imprinted as well. The other has an old fashioned frame and script:
It was a lot of fun to do and I sure hope you didn't cancel your subscription before you were able to take advantage of March's kit.
