A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Winter Woods October Kit 2019

Hello and welcome back to my blog today; this is my second post for today, but I am back with you to share my alternative projects for this month's Paper Pumpkin Kit (Winter Woods).  I had so much fun playing with this month's kit.  Here's a look at my Projects.
For my alternative projects this month I created a bag/box with a card and alternative card that's just super simple to do.  So we are going to jump into the card first.  Let's have a closer look at the card shall we.
For my alternative card I used a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock for my card base.  I simply scored it in half at 5 1/2".   Next, I took the left over part of the tree die cut that came in this month's kit and laid it onto my card base.  I taped it down to my desk and started doing some ink blending.  I started with Balmy Blue ink.  I untaped it and then shifted it over just a little and retaped it back to the desk and did a little more ink blending for a second row of trees with Night of Navy Ink.  I then removed the home made makeshift stencil and took the original die cut piece that came out from the opening and stamped my sentiment at the bottom and added it to the card base to create my third layer of trees.  With the ink blending I also got a second mound of snow in the background.  Bonus!  I finished off the card by adding just a single cardinal die cut to the front.
For my 3d project I created a smaller version of the Bag/box & Card combo that I made last year.  I wanted to create a smaller version of that project and the items in this months Paper Pumpkin Kit was just perfect.  I started out with two pieces of 6 x 6 cardstock and scored each piece on three sides at 1" on my New Stampin' Up! Trimmer.  Once I had all the scoring down I cut up the scorelines for the two smaller squares and notched them in just a little, glued everything up.  Once dried I glued both parts together using a liquid glue (you could use tear & tape but I wanted a little more wiggle room with the glue).
For the card on the front of the box/bag I used a piece of 3 1/2 x 8 Night of Navy cardstock and scored it in half at 4".  I added a piece of whisper white cardstock to the front and inside of the card that measures 3 1/4 x 3 3/4".  I took one of the cards from this month's kit and cut it down to 3 x 3 1/2" for the front of the card.  I added my sentiment to one of the banners from the kit with dimensionals.  I fished it off with one of the cardinals.  I did stamp my sentiment and some of the large snowflakes from this months Paper Pumpkin exclusive stamp set on the piece of whisper white that went on the inside of the card.  Before adding it to the bag/box I took some Poppy Parade texture ribbon wrapped it around the box and tied it into a pretty knot on one side.  I then took the card and added it to the front of the bag/box with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  The final measurements of the bag/box once complete is 4" w x 5" h x 1" d.
