My favorite day of the month is the day my Paper Pumpkin arrives from Stampin’ Up. This is the coolest, most affordable kit ever and you can purchase the kit on a month to month basis so you don’t have to worry about a long term commitment. This month I loved the examples that came with my kit so much I didn’t want to make alternatives until I saw some darling samples on Pinterest.

For this example I made the small card from the instructions, cut off the back part of the card and used the amazing Delicate Lace Edgelits on the gingham paper. I embossed the Soft Suede with the Basket Weave embossing folder to add more texture.
