P is for Peace on Earth with Pretty Pines and Paper Pumpkin

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series.  Today I am “shaking it up” for P! I used my Paper Pumpkin Pining for Plaid kit  (October 2017) with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and Carols of Christmas Bundle to make this “Peaceful” Christmas card . If you missed out on last month’s kit, don’t worry as you can still create this fun shaker card with products in the Stampin’ Up catalog. I like to make and share alternative ideas with my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and this card is just one example of how you can change it up a bit to make it your own.

My card base is from Paper Pumpkin; however, you can cut a piece of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper for the front of your card. I love the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and have used it a lot to create cards and boxes for the holidays. The Peace on Earth sentiment fit perfectly in the precut card front in the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love how my Paper Pumpkin saves me time! You always have the choice of turning over the prestamped image and stamping your own sentiment on the back or cut a piece of 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 Whisper White to stamp an image or sentiment and another piece 4 x 5 1/4 to cut the circle using the Layering Circles Framelits. The window sheets, dimensionals, and sequins were included in the kit but you can order any of these items from my Stampin Up store. To assemble you attach the window sheet with glue dots to the back of the circle cut out.  Then add the dimensionals around the circle and fill with some sequins.  Remove the backing from the dimensionals and adhere the sentiment so it faces the front.

Then just add dimensionals to the top and bottom and adhere to the card base.

I added the pine branches from the Pretty Pines Thinlits and the trees and deer from the Card Front Builder Dies.  You can purchase the Card Front Builder Dies with the Carols of Christmas stamp set and save 10% on the bundle!

I love the matching envelopes in the Paper Pumpkin kit.  You can always cut the Merry Little Christmas DSP and add to the flap on the back of your envelope to tie it all together if you don’t have the kit.

I am so excited that the November Paper Pumpkin kit is designed to coordinate with the cards in October’s kit.  We’ve been told it is a “gifting project”.  I love having cards and gifts to match; however, you don’t have to have the card kit to make the projects in the November kit.  They can stand alone or be used together. If you want to get that handmade holiday touch without the fuss sign up by Friday, November 10th to get the November Paper Pumpkin kit.  Click HERE to sign up.

  1. P is for pretty and perfect since the other is just a mouth full! I finally caved in and ordered the Carols of Christmas bundle last week. I saw a couple projects that I just have to try. Now, I must add this one too! I have not used my PP kit yet, just sort of hoarding it to see what is coming up in a few days with the next kit. Oh so fun and pretty!

  2. Very Pretty, Jeanie! And I have everything I need to make this except those little gold and silver embellishments! Why didn’t I get those with the other things in this suite? Who knows! Now I want them!!! That’s how it always works 🙂 Will miss you this weekend!

  3. Pretty !! Love the trees and deer . I am using some of my PP (Oct one) for my Thanksgiving cards .
    I was simply delighted with all that the kit contained and excited to see the coordinated one coming soon. Wonder if it will be black and white plaid ???
    Your card is going to bring a smile to someone`s face for sure !!

  4. Great card Jeanie, I’m a real lover of both shaker cards and plaid so this is s win, win for me. I have been really impressed with how Paper Pumpkin has improved over the years since its inception. You did an awesome job.
