July Paper Pumpkin Alternative--Back to School Gift

 When I was thinking about a card perfect for a teacher gift, I was inspired to make an alternate card with the July Paper Pumpkin kit.  The elements from July's kit are the perfect embellishments for a special teacher thank you card with the addition of Real Red cardstock and gold embellishments and a real red ribbon

I used one of the 3" envelopes as a gift card envelope on the top of the card interior.  I cut off the envelope flap and adhered the pocket to the top inside of the card.  This is a perfect pocket for a gift card or special note or small picture created just for the recipient.  

Make sure you head over to the  challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
