Creative Cards - September

Looks like fall is upon us... almost time for those chilly days where we all want to stay in by the fire and do some crafts. Perfect time to do all your card kits. Just wanted to say thank you to each one of you and I hope you enjoy this months polka dot theme. I just ordered paper for the October kit and am pretty excited to start work on them. Here are a few tips for anything beyond just sticking it down like in the photos.

Card #2 - Trim Cupcake stand card front and attach to patterned paper and white card. Add glitter to cherries on top of cupcakes. Add twine bow. This card has a white envelope.

Card #7 -in  Fold cardstock in half to form card base. Attach patterned paper. Trim sentiment and attach with pop dots. Fold scallop circle in half and cut in to center with scissors to form petals.
