Home for the Holidays: A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

Hi! I’m Vy with Crafting Daily Dose. Welcome to this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop, featuring alternatives for the October 2023 Home for the Holidays kit.

This kit included supplies for 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. Kits always come with an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives. As of today, refills are still available for this kit.

Today's project is a simple alternative that looks pretty on its own or can be propped up over a battery-powered tea light. You can use just the supplies from the kit, but if you add a piece of vellum, it helps to diffuse the light and gives you a place to add falling glitter "snow" to make it look even more special.

To start, I folded the cardbase so that the original front of the card was now on the inside. From the new front of the card, I cut out a rectangle, leaving a 3/4" border along the top and sides.

I used mini glue dots to discreetly attach a piece of vellum to the inside of the new card front. Next, I adhered the die cut houses to the front. I used glitter glue on the roofs and along the snowy areas at the bottom of the card to add sparkle, and I dotted some on the vellum and "frame" too. Finally, I added a sentiment to the top with the included Dimensionals.
