I have been impatiently waiting for the Manly May Paper Pumpkin kit to arrive this month! Demonstrators had the opportunity to see it and use it last month. It's a pretty fun kit! I've already broken into my second kit in under 24 hours and made 9 cards (so far) with many more alternate ideas floating around my head!
Here are some of the cards I made using only the supplies that came in the box. The kit contained supplies to make 8 cards.
Today's card is one of the alternate projects you can make with the kit. I wish I could take credit for this one, but it was a Stampin' Up! designed alternate. I took the corrugated Pumpkin Pie sheet and cut the butterfly using the largest butterfly in the Butterfly Thinlits collection. The corrugated layer is actually supposed to get adhered to the inside of the front of the card so it shows through the geometric design. I swapped it out with a sheet of Whisper White. I added a strip of Pool Party Cardstock (with corners rounded) over the solid white piece on the card base.
The sentiment is stamped on a 1/2" x 4" strip of Whisper White. I used two of the stamps that came in the kit to make up the greeting.
The Manly May kit came with a TWENTY piece Photopolymer Stamp Set that pretty much covers birthdays for the men in your life and Father's Day. But, obviously (as shown above), they can also be used to make not-so-manly cards, too!
