For my project this week, I wanted to integrate Cricut’s draw capabilities with my stamping. The front of the card was created using the sitting pretty bundle from last year. It features two of the 2018-2020 In Colors (Blueberry Bushel and Call Me Clover). If you look closely, you’ll notice there is a rhinestone acting as a picture hanger (cards can always use a little bling!).
For the inside, I tried out Cricut’s draw feature to help me create the inner sentiment which was a customer request. The hardest choice was definitely trying to figure out which font to use. I really like the way it came out!
After spending the afternoon yesterday cleaning and organizing my craft room, I rediscovered the Notes of Kindness Card Kit that had gotten buried in the “Things To Do” pile. Now that everything is organized, I couldn’t resist opening the box and playing with the pieces in the kit.
I didn’t wander too far from the suggested designs for the first round of cards. I wanted to keep things simple to see how “complete” the kit truly is. The only “extras” that I pulled out to complete the cards were snail adhesive, and a couple of ink pads (Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss).
Overall, I really liked the kit. The card bases are cute and colorful. The envelopes are all lined with the pink and white striped paper. The embellishments are straightforward and easily mixed and matched between the different card bases. The colored pieces are actually stickers and don’t need any adhesive. I think this kit would be a great gift for a beginner stamper. They can choose to follow the directions or branch out as they feel comfortable.
