I received my May Paper Pumpkin Kit – Exploring in Color, which features our new In Colors…aren’t they pretty? This kit is not centered around Father’s Day, but more Adventure. When I saw the beautiful cards and envelopes in the kit, I thought they would be perfect to make into Father’s Day cards. The completed cards will be given to a local hospital for the chronically ill in my State as part of an ongoing volunteer effort. The residents of this hospital look forward to the handmade cards that volunteers provide!
I pulled out my Gone Fishing Stamp Set which has a great Father’s Day sentiment as well as my 2″ Circle Punch and some white cardstock, plus the contents of the kit. Paper Pumpkin kits provide everything you will need to complete the project. In this kit, all of the below items were included plus 9 cards and 9 envelopes – 3 each of 3 different designs! Some fun stickers were also included!
I followed the instructions that were provided in the kit for the most part, except that each of my cards included a Father’s Day sentiment. I used my circle punch to create sentiment labels where the provided sentiment labels were not large enough for the sentiment.
The imagery on the cards and envelopes is beautiful!
I did change up the position of the labels on some of the cards.
If you haven’t given a Paper Pumpkins subscription a try, I highly recommend it! I love receiving my kit each month! You can read more about the June Paper Pumpkin Kit below!
