I am huge fan of kits because they take the guess work out of making cards. And, one of my goals was to make four cards a month. (Yeah, that's not many, but more than zero, lol)
I'm finally getting around to photographing and sharing my cards.
At first, I made two cards that were exact copies of samples that Kristina made.
But, then the creative bug hit. In the middle of the night, my brain was wide awake with ideas. The first idea I had was to highlight the zig zags, but at an angle.
I had some heart doilies that I had misted, and one of them matched the green and gray paper perfectly. I also decided to start decorating the inside of the card as well.
Several cardmakers were utilizing watercolors on their cards, and I was smitten. I tried it with a card, but...EPIC FAIL. Never one to waste, I turned it into a distressed card with lots of purple, mint, and brown. I like the color combination, but I'm not sold on the card.
Not too fond of this card, either. I think it's the ribbon that really turns me off. But, I like the design. I'll have to try that again with different colors.
I really love the navy cardstock that was included in the kit. Navy is a very trendy color right now. I definitely need to add more navy to my projects. I also wanted to make a card with a window. This one was huge, lol!
I used some old Martha Stewart lace circle stickers I got on clearance to make flowers. I love the kraft circle stickers included in the kit. I think I will order some more of those!
I made several other cards, some using only stamps. I also used the kit on my Project Life spread for Week one. Definitely will be sharing soon. Stay tuned!
