Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop, where we show you alternative ideas with your monthly Paper Pumpkin kit by Stampin’ Up!  This month we are playing with the Jolly Gingerbread kit.  The kit made adorable little boxes shaped like gingerbread houses, you can see them in the video below, but I didn’t need those.  I needed cards – so that’s what I made.

My card is a fun fold called a landscape easel card.  This is the fold I used on my card yesterday for my Facebook Live class.  It will be on YouTube soon.  The card base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Early Espresso CS, scored at 4-1/4″ and 6″.  I layered Soft Suede CS and Trimming the Town DSP over that.

This gave me a cute winter scene, in which to set my house.  Don’t you love how the path (on the DSP) leads right up to the door of my house?  All stamps used on this card are from the Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin Kit and I used Early Espresso ink. The house is colored using Stampin’ Blends and the fence is made using scraps of Whisper White CS that I punched out using the Classic Label punch.

Inside the card, I stamped on a Whisper White layer in Early Espresso ink. As a “stop” to hold the card open, I used the two smallest dies in the Stitched Nested Label Dies and die cut an Early Espresso and a Whisper White label.  They are attached with stampin’ dimensionals.

Doesn’t it look cute all propped up?  It was fun – how fast it all came together!

Did you know that Paper Pumpkin provides us with a stamp case insert that fits into the standard size stamp cases?  You can buy them empty to store your stamp sets and these inserts can be super handy!
