Birthday CardSew You Birthday Card is designed using Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin supplies.

My challenge today was to use the Mojo Monday card sketch and one of three Paper Pumpkin kits I have with me while traveling.

Paper Pumpkin is perfect for traveling.  Each kit includes paper, ink, stamps, accessories and instructions to make several projects.  The supplies I used today are from the Sew You Paper Pumpkin kit.

Along with the kit I brought some very basic stamping supplies:  paper snips, bone folder, and adhesive.

The black and white patterned  paper is part of the card bases from the kit.  The blue paper is cut from an envelope included in the kit.  The yellow embroidery thread and the blue star accents are also included in the kit.

It was a challenge  to cut circles and rounded corners without my trusted punches and framelits, but I finally discovered I could use my stacked measuring cups to trace the circles.  I cut them out with paper snips and smoothed them as needed with an emery board.
