So, I participated in Trade it Thursday over at my new e-buddies blog, Scrap Me This, Scrap Me That. Check out her blog to see what it's all about. Well I won a few weeks ago and I received a package of goodies a couple days ago. In the package I got a Basic Grey card making kit from their Green at Heart collection. Now I will admit when I first heard of card kits, to me it seemed like cheating, kinda defeated the whole fun of card making. I am not sure if any of you have bought one or read the contents of a card kit but basically it gives you everything you would need to make several cards, in Basic Grey's kits it is 8 cards. If includes the cardbase, pattern paper for layers, chipboard images and then a sheet of rub-ons that would have the sentiment on there. So basically you can make 8 complete cards, even includes the envelopes.
Well I have had the chance to play around with it and it is pretty cool. I made 2 cards, one I will share today and I will share the other one tomorrow. I may share more, if I get a chance to craft this weekend. LOTS of homework to get done by Monday.
So anywho, here is the card......I can't remember what size the card is supposed to be but it is bigger than the standard 4.25x5.5 size. I started with the polka dot card base, and layered the orange paper over it. The flower stems, "you are my" and the squiggles under the "Sunshine" are all rub-ons. The "Sunshine" is card stock letters and the flowers are chipboard. I drew in the dash lines on the edge of the orange paper and the lines on the edge of the polka dot paper. Simple! I think it took me 10 minutes to assemble it. I think I may actually like card kits, now I won't get them to replace my everyday card making, all on my own but I think it is a neat idea. LOL!
Hope y'all have a fabulous Saturday!
