Quick cards

Posted in Kits tagged , , at 12:11 pm by Sue

Well not much time for crafting but I did make a few cards with some of the kits I have sitting in the cupboard.  Why I keep buying them I don’t know.  Well they seemed like a good idea at the time. LOL  Here are a few.

I like this one.  I printed a background from the Artylicious Christmas CD directly onto the card, used a nestabilities curved rectangles die to cut the mirri card and mounted the topper onto it.  I did not have a ribbon to match so I used a dark blue one and placed a white one over the top and it is almost the same colour as the mirri card.

My new Cute Companions Winters Tale kit has arrived so hopefully I will be showing you something made from that soon.

I turned the sketch onto it’s side as I wanted to use the decoupage Lavender Fairy and she looked better this way.  The purple organza ribbon does not show up very well in the scan.

I used the lavender Fairy and Lavender Fairy backing paper from the Crafters Companion Flower Fairy CD.  I think the butterfly card is from Kanban and the wired dragonfly is from Syntego.
