Card Set part 4
Today I have the final installment of my card set I made as a Christmas gift. I will be showing you three lots of three cards today - so relatively photo heavy today.
The first lot is made with the 6.5" paper pad from the Kaisercraft 'Rock Pool' collection.
The Kaisercraft paper pads always come with a few sheets of tear-out ephemera - tags, shapes and border pieces - which I tried to use up this time. The angled designs seemed to be the go to for this group.
This whale on the specialty paper was adorable so I wanted to make it the feature. I added a little whale up in the top left corner to accentuate the fact that the whale was the feature of this card.
A bit of bling always tops it off and makes any project a bit special.
The second lot is made using my absolute favourite 6.5" paper pad from the Kaisercraft 'Sweet Pea' collection. I loved it so much I also bought the ephemera pack which I also used on two of these cards.
This card is so simple yet so gorgeous. A background splattered with pink inks, topped with punched hearts, a patterned paper strip, a wee journaling card and some bling. Honestly it isn't difficult at all.
The colours on this card are probably my most favourite combination I've ever done. Mint and gold. Hmm hmm hmm. Again the design is pretty simple - patterned paper strip, banner strips, the negative of a punched heart and some sequins. Just choose an awesome colour combo and stick to two or three colours for your main design.
And the final group of Christmas gift card set is made from the 6" paper pad from the Kaisercraft 'Seaside' collection.
This really isn't my favourite collection, but when I take the paper and make it into smaller pieces, use a nice and simple design, stick to only two or three colors for each card, and finish them off with sequins, I am impressed with how they turn out and I like the end result.
Again is used the tear out ephemera that comes in the paper pad, along with patterned paper strips, punched shapes and sequins. Yip, the same formula as all the other cards.
I really enjoyed making the cards with the little flowers. I replicated this design with another paper pad here. Adding a sequin to the centre of a few was a cute touch and really helped to make the card look finished. The larger flower is simply two larger punched flowers with a smaller punched plower in the middle, topped with a sequin. So easy so really effective.
Well that is it for my card set. I hope you have inspired to try out a few of these designs for yourself, or even to create a card set for someone you love - even simple designs are time consuming so it really is a gift from the heart. If you do, please give me the link in the comments below as I'd love to see what you have done.
Until next time,
