Great patterned paper, die cut numbers, velvet ribbon, buttons and even some cute balloons and birthday candles. I have to admit, I had no idea what I would do with those balloons!
Here is my first card:
Joyce likes to say that her cards make themselves and I found that to be true for me this month with all three cards. I especially love the number impression plate embossed cardstock Kim sent us. With the exception of the cardstock base, every element on this card is from our kit.
Card Number 2 is going to my best friend who is turning 50 in a few weeks.
I tried not to be too mean with all those "50's", but it isn't my fault there were so many pieces of patterned paper with 5's and 0's printed right next to each other, is it? Again, every single element except the card base is from our kit. See what I mean? The card made itself.
The last card is my favorite because it used those balloons that I had such a hard time deciding how to use. I settled on a birthday card for my niece who is turning 3. What 3 year old wouldn't like a few balloons to play with?
I tucked three balloons and the last three candles into a seed packet diecut envelope from Papertrey Ink. I also added her diecut name, some buttons and pearls. This card weighs about a pound, but I love how it turned out.
Here's a pic of all three cards I made. I used up just about everything in the kit except the velvet ribbon, and I will admit that I am saving that for something special in the future.
Now that you have seen my cards, make sure you check out the great cards the other three ladies in my group have made. Prepare to be blown away with their creativity. I am so fortunate to call all three of these sweet and creative ladies my friends.
