Simple Card Trio

Hello friends!

Happy Tuesday and welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog. Today I’d like to share with with a very simple card trio using the August Cards, Tags & More kit. This is such a fun, versatile kit and can be easily mixed with elements from our companion Scrapbooking and Mixed Media kits.

The first card I’d like to share is based on this month’s sketch for our challenge at the Tres Jolie Cafe. I thought it would be fun to show how easily you can create a card from a layout sketch.

Here’s the sketch…it’s a beauty!

And here’s my card…

This card was so simple to make. I cut an inch off one of the white album pages (basically removing the binding holes) that are included in the kit and used it as my card base. I then applied crackle paste (my favorite medium!) randomly to the entire base and began layering my elements. I just LOVE the colors in this kit. The Craft O’ Clock papers are so stunning and Kim chose the perfect coordinating embellishments!

For my second card I tore a strip of the blue script patterned paper , layered tags and Prima leaves from the scrapbooking kit, floral cut outs, and flowers. For a cohesive look on all three cards I added seam binding as a final element.


I also used a torn strip of patterned paper as the base for my last card. I literally took a hodge podge of elements that were on my desk and adhered them in layers to create my composition. For a final touch I mixed a bit of the Bundled Sage distress oxide spray with water and brushed it lightly into a few nooks and crannies.


That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed these quick, simple cards. Notice they have no sentiments – I decided to leave them blank for now. I will add personalization when I’ve decided who I am sending them to.

Enjoy the rest of your week friends – and be sure to visit our blog again soon- it’s updated often with gorgeous creations and inspiration from my other design teammates.
