Expressions in Color, Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards

The Expressions in Color Kit was bursting with fun inky colors! The stamp set contained sentiments for any season. You can pair this kit with the Expressions in Ink Suite (item #155459) from the 2021 Annual Catalog for even more creative crafting! I have made 4 alternate cards using this kit and I love the bright colors, vellum accents and leafy embellishments.
