This is the second card that we created at the Essex stamp club gathering last week. I had this Paper Pumpkin kit from last year in my stash, and I thought it would be a perfect easier project for these ladies. Actually, I thought of showing them this kit a few months ago, but I wanted to save it for when we’re closer to Father’s Day. The stamps in this kit are so versatile, and they allow you to customize the greeting to “Dad”, “Uncle”, “Grandpa”, “Friend”, and “My Love”. Also, there is a Birthday greeting so you can go in a totally different direction when you make up these cards.

I also wanted to highlight a Paper Pumpkin kit because there is a special deal on them right now.
