Creative Cards - June

Hello all! Making this June kit made me so happy. The colors just make me feel joyful and the fun playful elements were an added bonus. Here i've written a few extra tips and tricks to help you put your cards together.

First trim out all the decorative pieces with your scisssors. The clouds, house, flower and tree, so those will be ready when you get to that card. Be careful not to cut to close to the sentiments. *** Use the sentiment "thanks for brightening my day" for the inside of the 3x3 card.

For this first card the cardstock is already folded, attach the patterned paper. Attach the gingham paper and attach the house. Wrap the ribbon around the card and tie in a bow. Ink the edges if desired and attach the sentiment to the bottom of the card and add the pink button with glue.

Card #5 Attach patterned paper to card inside of gate pieces **** Do not add adhesive to the top of the paper so you can slip the tag in behind the paper. Fold gate pieces and attach with some glue (they don't need to open. Attach the tree that you trimmed out. Tie ribbon in a small knot, trim and attach. Mat sentiment and attach. Attach white paper to tag. Add twine to button and attach to tag. Slip tag behind the patterned paper (this is where you can add your signature) *** This card comes with a 6x6 envelope so there is room for the tag!

Card #6 - Fold cardstock to form card base. Attach patterned paper that you trimmed out with pop dots. Tie ribbon in bow, gather and glue up under flower ( I used hot glue). Add glitter to some parts of the flower. Add twine to button and attach. Add the sentiment to the inside of the card. This card comes with a clear envelope.
