Paper Pumpkin Possibilities November Blog Hop From The North Pole

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin November Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas using the From The North Pole Kit. Our talented Design Team members will inspire you to think outside the box and help you create your own wonderful alternative projects with this kit.
For my alternative card design, I chose to use supplies from the kit along with Sweet Sorbet and Basic White cardstock. You may notice that this card has No Stamping. Yes, you heard that right. I actually created a card with No Stamping. As strange as they may seem, I really love how this design turned out and the simplicity of this Christmas card. This card design shows how you can take the kit supplies to create a simply beautiful card quickly and simply. The bold color combination and sparkle of the snowflake help make a simply Wow Christmas card.

Creating simple card designs can be a challenge for me, especially when there is no stamping involved. I went through a few different layouts before finally coming up with this winning design. I just love the bold colors and clean layout of this design. The fact that the majority of the supplies were from the kit meant that it was quick and simple to assemble. I used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals from the kit to pop up the tag onto the card front and then Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to add both the snowflake and the sentiment label onto the tag to pop them up. I tied a simple bow using the Mint Macaron Baker's Twine through the hole at the top of the tag and added a Basic Rhinestone to the center of the snowflake to finish off the card design. I hope that this card design will inspire you to experiment with the supplies in this kit to create your own Christmas cards to send to family and friends.
