Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!
Today I’m bringing you a couple of quick and simple autumn cards using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. I used a couple of pre-made card bases and envelopes from Recollection’s (stash) and just added my own touch using the papers, ephemera, and chipboard from this month’s kit, as well as some other items from my stash.
Need some quick cards? Check out my video to see how I put these together!
Simple, yes? Not all projects need hours of work to come out fabulous! And really, the Prima papers and Tres Jolie chipboard does most of the work here!
My card bases are 6.5” x 5”, so I cut out 6.25” x 4.75” rectangles. Then I measured in 1/2” all the way around and, using my craft knife, I cut out my center rectangle! Two layers out of one rectangle!
I also just grabbed up a leaf stencil and some fluid chalk inks to add some decoration and color to the card bases and envelopes.
I have had that flocking in my stash for – a very long time! I would have to say over 10 years! I just never knew what to do with it. I finally decided it was time to pull it out and see if I could make it work! I used some fluid chalk ink and sticky embossing powder to start, but the flocking didn’t really stick down heavily—it came out more like fuzz—so I added some collage medium and added more flocking. I do like the “unevenness” of the flocking though! Some places are have a thinner layer which makes it look lighter, and some areas are nice and thick, which makes a darker area!
Here is a close-up to really show the flocking. I added some clear beads as raindrops to this umbrella and just a few clear sequins on the pear card.
Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed these cards and they gave you some ideas of what you can make using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!
