A Triptych is a picture or a carving on three panels, and these panels are usually hung up side by side to show the full image. They can be used as a beautiful statement piece in your house as well, so why not for a card?

I knew I wanted to create a triptych using a gorgeous scene in this kit, but couldn’t decide which one of the three to use — so of course I made triptych cards with each of them!

Changing up the kits is never necessary, which makes Paper Pumpkin a great option for new crafters and busy crafters. But putting ones own style and spin on these kits is one of my favorite ways to create fun new projects! Reverse Gatefold and Triptych cards were an easy and great way to take this kit to the next level.

This Triptych technique is a great for paper or DSP with a pretty scene. See below for how to create this Triptych Paper Pumpkin Alternative:


How to make a Triptych Paper Pumpkin Alternative:

Cut your cardstock:

  • White cardstock: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4”
  • Mossy Meadow: (3) panels 5-1/4” x 1-5/16”
  • Nature scene from card front in kit: (3) panels 5-1/8” x 1-3/16”

Create Triptych Panels:

  • Adhere each of the nature strips to a Mossy Meadow strip.
  • Ensuring your strips are “in order,” glue them down to your white card front.

TIP: To evenly line up multiple pieces, first place them where you want each, then adhere the pieces on the edge before the center pieces.

Stamp and finish card:

  • Using the included Copper Clay ink spot, stamp your sentiment and make the banner as suggested in the guide. Wrap twine around the top and tie a bow.
  • Lastly, use dimensionals to pop up the banner on your card.
