Soft and Pretty Cards

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers, including rice paper from Ciao bella.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with a pad of 12×12 paper to create plenty of elegant/vintage cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. I am still getting better and better each month with cards and I have a nice supply of them now:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. I used flowers from the kit. The vellum is from the flower pack in the kit. I embossed one of the mini chipboard frames in the kit with a vintage embossing powder.

The clock is from my stash, I added some alcohol ink to it to color it. The sentiment is from my stash, it’s from a Tim Holtz pack. I also embossed the leafy chipboard piece with a soft green color. I also inked the edges of my papers.

Today’s tip: If something isn’t the right color, make it so. Try using alcohol inks, distress inks, or embossing powder to alter elements to fit your project.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.
