“Donut” Miss May Paper Pumpkin

May Paper Pumpkin is delicious – just as it is!  But if you know me, I just can’t resist the urge to add my own spin to this darling kit!  The donut card collection really hit the spot!  I actually put the cards together right out of the box standing at my kitchen island!  It was just too tempting – the donuts were calling my name!  In just minutes the donuts and their coordinating banners were stamped and embellished with the iridescent stick on dots and pearls provided in the kit.  If that weren’t enough, the envelopes are the cutest little striped sacks, complete with gold twine to wrap and tie and a matching label.  They are so stinkin’ cute!  I’ve already written thank you notes inside the cards and addressed them to 9 new customers.  They’ll be mailed tomorrow along with the new 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up Catalog!

Alternative Donut Cards

Look what happensAlternate donut cards for May Paper Pumpkin Kit designed by Lynda Falconer at when you use the donut card  front from the kit to make a 5 x 5 card!  With a few additional embellishments, some cardstock, and a handmade envelope you get larger and even cuter cards for very little extra effort!  Both cards start with a 5 x 5″ card base. Reduce the dimensions of the second and third card stock layers by 1/4″.  That makes the second layer 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and the third (top) layer 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.  Cut the kit donut card in half to make 2 cards and decorate with the same chocolate frosting sticker, Alternate donut card from May Paper Pumpkin Kit using chocolate frosting sticker and gold faceted embellishments by Lynda Falconer, Indepedent Stampin Up Demonstrator at www.crafterinspired.combanner, and stamps you use on the kit cards.  I added some gold faceted embellishments on top and created a coordinating envelope with the envelope punch board using the new Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.
