August 2013 - Creative Cards

I'm so excited to bring this kit to you this month. The chalkboard kits back in june were so well recieved I wanted to do it again. This time I thought since school is starting back across the county I would use the old school green chalkboards for the sentiments and pair them with bright playful colors. This month all the dies are my newest designs for Sizzix. The banner, the embossed phrase, the 3-d House card and the flowers are all now available in my A Little Bit of This and That collection.

I used a dark gray ink to ink all the edges of the cards so feel free to add ink where ever you feel its needed.

I provided a strip of sentiments for the insides of the cards. You can trim them, ink the edges and add to the insides of the cards.

Let's get started putting these cards together. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you out.

Card #1 - Fold card along the perf line making sure the chimney pops up. Attach patterend paper to roof. Ink chimney heavily to darken. Wrap twine around house and tie in a bow. Attach large flower and alphabet bead. Using the small strip of tan paper cut two squares for windows, use marker to add details and attach. Cut the small strip of green paper in half and snip all along the top of the two pieces to form grass, attach to the bottom of the card and attach the door die cut to the center to cover the seperation of grass. Attach two small flowers and add stem details with marker. Trim sentiment and attach. This card has a white envelope and sentiments are provided for the inside.
