August Creative Cards - Wonderful Greetings

Happy Summer to Everyone! I'm so excited to share with you my latest kit... Wonderful Greetings. I had so much fn this month creating with these basic shapes and amazing color palette. I spent a whole mess of time hand dying matching ribbon to get that awesome crinkle effect. I hope you love them as much as I do. And because I forgot to photo the cards individually, and because i've already left on vacation and they are at home, I am only including this one overview photo this month. 

Wonderful greetings  600 400


Here's a few basic tips and tricks that might not be obvious from the photo.

Card #1 - Star Card - Wrap raspberry ribbon around card and tie in a bow. Cut tails off completely. Mat sentiment and attach over ribbon. Add 4 small pearls to the corners of the sentiment.

Card # 2- Flower Card - Punch small hole in the fold of the card and thread ribbon through, wrao around card and tie in a bow. Tip: Attaching the "so Lovely" sentiment first may help you know where to place the ribbon.

Card #3 - Sun Card - Pretty simple here... Just layer up all your pieces.

Card #4 - Scallop Border Card - Attach scallop border and trim off edges. After tying bow attach crochet flower and add a small pearl to the center.

Card #5 - Small Heart Card - Fold the 3x6 piece of cardstock in half to form card base. Layer all the other pieces shown. this card has a clear envelope.

Card #6 - Happy Birthday Card - Layer on banner shapes. Mat sentiment and attach over tops of banner shapes. Tie a bow with blue seam binding and attach. Attach button to center.

Tags- Layer pieces as shown attach black twine for hangers.
