A little over a month ago SU! was having a sale on their Paper Pumpkin boxes, I thought it would be the perfect thing for Miss B in the mail and since they were so discounted I thought I’d order myself one too. I’m not sure why I do that because I am never happy with kits. I want to do my own thing so mine set unopened until Wednesday evening.
The kit came with all the things to make birthday cards and bags and a page of instructions. This first picture is how the card should look… cute but simply boring!
Then the AHSC #112 popped into my head. What could I do to dress up this card? Lucky for me nothing was glued down in that first photo (I knew I wanted a better card). I moved the band, added a couple of card stock strips in yellow and orange and then reached for a packet of Project Life accessories that was close by. The middle strip is Washi Tape over a piece of white paper cut to size and the “so happy” is a sticker. The balloon was in my kit to be used on the envelope and gift bags, but it worked perfectly for this card.
I know the sentiment is in the wrong place, but the sketch is supposed to be a jumping off point for creativity and mostly I wanted to challenge myself to use the stuff that came in the kit in a new way – sort of like two challenges in one, if you will.
I’m glad you decided to stop by and hope you’ll leave me a comment. I take the time to read them all 🙂
