The last challenge over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog this month is to be inspired by the word FRIENDS. Well, for this card-making gal, that is a cinch. Here are more cards I churned out with this month’s kit, all to be sent to friends.
First, a card obviously for a friend. The stamp is from Stampin Up’s Notewothy set. The So tag is actually from a piece of clothing. I love this Lily Bee Three Little Birds paper. I added a sliver of the reverse side of that paper covered in decorative tape (this is clear and not removable like washi) and the embellishment cluster nearer the birds.
Here’s another card using the same paper, plus a central banner from Elle’s Studio to which I added the words to you. I put banners of die-cuts and ribbons to each side, then added a star and the linen twine as finishing touches.
By the time you read this post, the rest of my kit will have been dismantled and put away. I have learned that unless the kit was compiled for a particular project, like a trip with pages still to finish, I very rarely go back to a kit and pick it up again. It sits there for 6 months and then I dismantle it, often in the meantime looking for an item that I have forgotten was included there. I have known about this bad habit of mine for awhile but am finally conceding that I will never do any better in that regard.
So onward and upward with the next great kit!
