Peaceful Christmas Paper Pumpkin

Peaceful Christmas by Paper Pumpkin

When you picture a peaceful Christmas, what comes to mind? Do you see snow outside your window, softly swirling through the sky? A tree trimmed with tinsel, a fire crackling nearby? Maybe you’re dreaming of decorating a holly jolly gingerbread house. Can you catch a whiff of Christmas cookies wafting through the air?

Whatever it is you think about when Christmas comes to town, picture a peaceful Christmas with the Peaceful Christmas Paper Pumpkin Kit! This glimmering and gleaming kit is your creative kickstart to Christmas cardmaking. With sprinkles of snow, shimmering silver skies, and heartwarming holiday wishes, you’ll have enough elements and embellishments to create 10 Christmas cards and coordinating envelopes.

Speaking of coordination, make even more Christmas magic with Peaceful Place products! Our stunning Peaceful Place Suite Collection (item 156277) pairs perfectly with the kit’s components. Brew a cup of cocoa, snuggle up with a soft blanket, and prepare for a cozy craft night in!

Color & Contour Card

I offer a monthly Card Buffet Card Class and this is one of the choices from the August Class.  Click on EVENTS at the top of my blog for class listings.

Color & Contour

I used the Color & Contour Bundle along with the Layering Circle dies.  The Basic Borders dies was used for the beautiful scalloped edge.  I love these dies - when I remember to use them!  The card base is Paly Papaya and the flower is stamped with Early Espresso ink.  I used Pumpkin Pie ink for the centers  of the flower.  I added a strip of the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card to match the front.

Thank you for joining me today for my first (and I hope not my last) video.  I don't know why I've been so afraid of filming a video, but I have bee. Anyway, I managed to muddle my way though the process and anticipate that I'll improved as time goes by.  We all know the old say, practice, practice, practice.  I hope you enjoy my video on this super easy slimline Christmas card.  The card base is Soft Succulent cardstock with a layer of Evening Evergreen.  The stamping is on a 3" x 8" piece of Basic White cardstock.
