March 16 Paper Pumpkin and a Male Birthday

Hi Stampers,

I finally got back to stamping and I'm featuring the March Paper Pumpkin with a few alternates.

First, I want to show you a male birthday card I created. This card followed a sketch from one of my favorite sites, "Stampin' Gals Gone Wild".  She has some great sketches.
Male Birthday
The Sketch

Here is my card. The car is from a set named "Guy Greetings".

The designer series paper (DSP) is a 6 x 6 stack named "Go Wild".

The little dots or gems next to the car are small rhinestones colored with a black sharpie.

This sketch is such a nice, simple, and versatile design.

Now for the March Paper Pumpkin I told you about last month. This month was the 3rd Birthday for Paper Pumpkin, and they shipped their 1 MILLIONTH Kit!!

Here is the card made according to package directions.

This kit made 4 cards, 4 envelopes, 4 gift card holders, and 4 little cards for the holders.

They are just right for birthdays, graduations, or just a thinking of you card.

Here is my first alternate card with this kit. You might have noticed that I used the same sketch above.

The patterned paper is from one of the envelopes.

When you get your kits, don't be afraid of cutting up the paper or envelopes. They usually are decorative and can be incorporated into cards.

Here is one more alternative. Can you see the difference between them?

The left one does not have the 3 little green beads on the center square. I couldn't decide which one I liked better or looked better. What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments.

Next month's paper pumpkin we get a free stamp set in the kit as a birthday present to us. I'm excited to see it.
It will be here soon.
