This month’s card kit is one where I felt like it was good value – lots of options for a mix of cards – even a few Christmas ones too! I had lots of 6×6 paper left and it’s a neutral pad so I know I’ll use it for layouts and other cards and tags.
Here are my cards:
For this one I used my cloud punches and the patterned paper to create few cloud clusters by popping some off with foam adhesive – I also inked the edges of the cloud with Distress Ink in broken china. I ‘stitched’ on the outside of the card using my white Uniball pen. Love the labels that came with this kit – I’m terrible at making coordinating envelopes and this makes it easy.
This one is my favourite – I layered some patterned paper on top of the yellow polka dot card base, used a label and adhered a die-cut ‘hello’. I embellished with the burlap stickers.
For this one I added some of the twin and stamped sentiments both on a piece of patterned paper and on some burlap embellishments – love the chocolate brown envelope and the label means I can address it with any colour pen.
I stamped the sentiment repeatedly in Unicorn Hero Arts white ink and then die-cut the balloons using a Little B die and added some twine as the string for this card.
I created some strips with some patterned paper and layered on a piece of white from my stash and stuck the burlap heart down to peek out from behind it. I added some enamel dots from my stash to finish it off.
Super simple Christmas card – I gold heat embossed the sentiment, die-cut the tree and decorated it with twine and the burlap star.
Another basic card featuring die-cut ornaments and heat embossed sentiment – it doesn’t show up well in the photo but its the Zing Embossing powder with glitter – gorgeous!
I struggle with sympathy cards so I think simple is best and die-cut the trees and stamped the sentiment directly onto the neutral card base for this one.
I layered a white embossed piece onto a piece of patterned paper and stamped the sentiment. I coloured the dots with my glitter pen.
I pulled some white card stock from my stash and created these two card fronts using my heart punch and the letter stickers that came with the kit.
I always use kit leftovers to create journalling and filler cards for my project life album – the scalloped edge piece is the stamp set packaging – I thought it was too pretty to throw out.
I plan to use kraft paper and twine/washi to wrap my Christmas gifts this year so these tags will be useful. The stamps set include in this kit is so versatile and I enjoyed keeping my cards simple this month.
Happy card making!
