Happy Saturday, craft people!
Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards I made with the August card kit, and, I used the first Tres Jolie card sketch designed by owner Kim Heard. Look at how beautiful it is:
I do love to make cards, but I usually get carried away with the bulkiness of embellishments, so I usually just stick them in a box or a gift bag, and these ones are no exception! 🙂 Here are two I made based on the sketch:
Both cards were made using the same design. I started with two layers and added some distressing and chalk ink from my stash. The green is a Tsukinedo Dew Drop ink pad in Ocean Oasis, and the Pink is the Prima Old Rose one. I used both chalk inks on the tickets, banners, and the green on the Kaisercraft wood doilies as well.
I added some a doily and some floral die cuts that I cut from the Prima Havana papers. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard coins (“Smile” on this card, and “Cherish” on the other one.) from my stash. I wanted them to look like pennies so I added some copper wax paste and the green chalk inkl.
To finish off the cards, I added some black and white splatters of India ink.
Here’s the other card- same design, just different papers, and slightly different elements.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. Details here in the Facebook community.
We’d love it if you used the kits to join the challenges, but if you aren’t already a subscriber, you can still play along with your own supplies. However, consider subscribing! http://tresjoliekits.com/services/
We do have a couple of August card kits still available here!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
