Meaningful Flowers #2

Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up's monthly subscription box. August's "Meaningful Flowers” kit contained supplies for 8 cards--4 each of 2 different designs. Kits always include an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives.

The intended projects are always fun, but I love to find different ways to use the kits and show their versatility.

The vellum piece from the kit is really striking, and I wanted to find a different way to use it, so I added a little cardstock to make a box card.

I also used the lotus die cut and decorative panel for the front.

On the back, I kept the lovely explanation of the symbolism that had been printed on the original cardbase. There's space for a message above it, but if you need more room, you could replace this with a piece of Basic White cardstock.


-Starry Sky cardstock

  • 7-1/2" (W) x 4-1/4" (H), scored at 2" and 5-1/2" along the long side and at 2-1/2" from the bottom along the short side: cut off 2 top corners

  • 4-1/2" (W) x 2-1/2" (H), scored at 1/2" and 4" along the long side (1/2" from each end)

-Kit cardbase back

  • Trim 1/4" from bottom, 1" from top, and 3/8" from each side to create piece that is 3-1/2" (W) x 4-1/4" (H)

-Kit decorative panel

  • Trim 1/2" from left and 1" from top to create piece that is 3-1/2" (W) x 4-1/4" (H)

-Kit vellum panel

  • Score at 1/4" from each side along the long side

September 10th is the last day to sign up for next month’s kit, called With Love & Gratitude. This kit makes 8 treat envelopes and 8 matching notecards. A gorgeous coordinating journal is available in the online store while supplies last. If you‘re in the U.S. and would like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me, I’ll send you a handmade thank you card, and I’ll be sure to let you know when I post new ideas!
