It would be fair to say there has been a card making frenzy going on around here lately :)
With the arrival of (yet another) Studio Calico card kit this week, I counted up three that I had barely even looked at...eeek! Wasn't the deal that I was supposed to make 5 cards per kit, per month? Anyhoo, rather than dwell on that, I combined all three kits, set them out on my desk, and started creating.
The first thing I reached for was the pack of woodgrain feathers...love them, but what to do with them?
A coating of Mr Huey's Colour Mist in Sunshine turned them a beautiful rust colour, so I found paper, added faux stitching and made a Sympathy Card...just for the stash ;)
Loved this zig zag paper, but there were no embellishments that I loved to match. I'm finding the colours that SC use are a bit muted for my taste...i like BRIGHT!
Studio Calico always provide a sheet of kraft cardstock, and I always struggle to use it...so that was my challenge :)
The pink chevron paper was a must use, combined with floral washi tape across the centre, and an embossed flower with bling in the centre.
A boy card is always handy to have, so that was my next challenge.
While all this flurry of cardmaking activity was going on, my youngest decided to join in and totally show me up by creating 5 cards of her own...and in record time too ;)
