Paper Pumpkin Alternatives May 2023/Exploring In Color

 You can make these beautiful scene cards with the Paper Pumpkin, May 2023 Kit - Exploring In Colors

You can assemble the cards as is, or step outside the box. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.

If you cut the cards in half, you get double the amount, by adding them to a coordinating piece of card stock. Here they are added to Wild Wheat card bases that are 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored, and folded in half at 4 1/4". The top scene is cut down to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8". A strip of Basic White cut at an angle is for the sentiment. The second card scenic layer was not trimmed in size. There is a piece of Basic White inside that measures 5 1/4" x 4".

The Enjoy Your Day sentiment is from the April 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Make a standing calendar by adding it to a card base that measures 4 1/4" x 11", scored, and folded in half at 5 1/2". Use a 4" x 4" coordinating piece of card stock for the stand that is scored at 1/2", 2", and 3 1/2". Add Tear & Tape to the 1/2" parts, and attach to the bottom inside. 

The mini tear off calendar is from Taylored Expressions. If desired layer it on a piece of 3 1/8" x 2 3/8" card stock. The one above is Boho Blue.
