August Paper Pumpkin Extension

august paper pumpkin extension 1

How is your child's teacher coping with school start up amid COVID regulations? I'm sure that it's been crazy for him or her, trying to figure out the physical distancing and sanitizing and keeping kids from doing what they do that would spread the virus, along with all the regular hard work of starting a new class and establishing expectations and managing curriculum! How much do they get in the way of PPE, with kids coughing and sneezing on them? They probably deserve an award! You can show your appreciation to them with a card like this one that I made with the remnants of my August 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit!

  • I started with a card base of Rich Razzleberry and added a piece of  Rich Razzleberry plaid DSP from the Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper over a matte of Gold Foil Sheet.
  • On one of the large rectangular panels from the kit, I stamped the ribbon for the medal in Rich Razzleberry ink. It's a DistINKtive stamp so you get all the texture and shadow from just one stamping.
  • I used one of the vellum sprigs of foliage to add to the right of this panel, using glue dots from the kit to attach it as they are slimmer than our regular glue dots and less likely to show.
  • I stamped the #1 from the "World's Greatest" stamp set that comes with the Paper Pumpkin kit, in Rich Razzleberry ink on one of the smaller circle die cuts from the kit and adhered it to a Gold Foil Circle die cut from the Tasteful Label Dies. These were added to the bottom of the ribbon.
  • Lastly, I stamped the TEACHER sentiment from the World's Greatest stamp set on to one of the small rectangle die cuts from the kit, in Rich Razzleberry ink again and mount it on a Gold Foil flag die cut using one of the Tasteful Labels dies. This is added to the card front at the bottom right.
You end up with an elegant looking card good enough to express your appreciation to the teacher charged with looking after your child's health, welfare and education at school this crazy year - and you know how hard that is after trying to do it for 7 months!
