An alternative card to the April Paper Pumpkin 2019 utilizing kit contents and other supplies

Cut Whisper White thick card stock 5" by 7", score at 3.5" to create a note card base 3.5 x 5

Center a rectangle stitched die on the card front and cut out a window, save the stitched piece that is cut out to use for another card, set it aside for now.

Use one of the 3 x 4.25 pieces provided in the kit that has mint macaron and so saffron coloring on it and attach it to the inside of the card front creating a background. I used Zig two way glue pen to run a thin bead of glue around the edge of the opening as there is only 1/8" clearance all around to attach to.

Stamp the rose with So Saffron and two leaves with Mint Macaron onto Whisper White card stock and cut out with scissors.

Attach these to the card front the rose with regular dimensionals and the leaves with mini dimensionals - one on each leaf.

Use one of the labels included with the kit that has the So Saffron edge and stamp the sentiment of your choice, attach with dimensionals.

HINT: When stamping with Distinctive stamps use a bone folder or spoon to push the ink to one end of the ink pad. This keeps the stamp from getting too much ink and leaves a crisper design.
