Making a Card Kit

Hello, Diana here; today I would like to share a bunch of cards I made.

What do you do when you buy a very nice paper collection for a project and when you are done you still have a 3rd part of it left over?  Well, because of situations like this is why I started making cards.

I gathered all the leftover papers and embellishments, in this case it is the My Minds Eye’s Stella& Rose Mabel line, since all the papers have matching colors it makes the job easier and faster.

I also matched ribbon, twine, flowers and other assorted embellishments. And to get even more inspired I took an online class at Big Pictures called Cooking Up Cards and made 9 cards using their recipes.

Here are the cards I made:

So Happy.
 Thank You.
 One Special Day.
Happy Birthday.
 Thank you.


I still had a few chip shapes to use, so I made these three small cards.

There was even enough paper to make a double page layout.

So next time you have a lot of leftovers from one paper collection, make a Card Kit :)

Hope you all have a great day.
