Creative Cards - June

The summer crafting season is here. I hope you'll be making some time for yourself and your crafting this summer. I know I love to grab a big glass of iced tea or lemonade and sit down to get creative on a warm afternoon.

* I would recommend that you cut the top sentiments (the ones arranged in a block at the top of the page) with your scissors. They are a little close together and I did have a bit of trouble with my paper trimmer. :)

Card #1 - Fold one piece of the white cardstock in half (opening to the side) and attach the patterned paper. Attach the burlap lace trim, I use white glue, and then trim off edges. Trim the bird from the sentiments page and attach. Trim the small sentiments in three pieces and attach. Tie a small bow with the aqua seam binding and attach to corner of card. This bird is my personal art created for this kit :)

Card #2 - Fold the aqua cardstock in half to form a small 3x3 card. Attach patterned paper to the outside and one of the white squares to the inside. Attach the blue velvet trim, I used white glue, and then trim deges. Attach sentiment with pop dots and add the small clear rhinestone to the flower on the sentiment. Tie a small bow with the yellow seam binding and attach.

Card #3 - Fold the grey cardstock to form a small 3x3 card. Attach patterned paper to the outside and a white piece to the inside. Trim sentiment and attach. Tie a bow with the white seam binding and attach. Add a pearl to embellish, I attached mine with white glue, but hot glue or glue dots work great.

Card #4 - Fold white cardstock in half with opening on the bottom. Trim the card front from the sentiments page and attach. Trim sentiment from sentiment from page in three pieces.
