May 2024 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: The Best There Is

For this kit, we created a "dad" picture frame and a coordinating card! We really embraced the wood effect with the provided patterned paper while also adding some cardstock from the Country Woods Designer Series Paper. On both the card and picture frame, we used the Alphabet à la Mode Dies with Basic White Cardstock and Pool Party Cardstock.

Looking at the frame, we used the So Swirly Embossing Folder to add texture to the Night of Navy Cardstock for the base. Then we cut the provided patterned paper from the kit down for the next layer. The circles on the far right were cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies and the Spotlight in Nature Dies.

To decorate both the frame and card, we used the Opal Rounds Assortment embellishments.
