Card Making Kit Fun!


Isn't this a cute stamped image?  I'm not sure who makes it since I got it in a card making kit from PJMeeMaw on the Paper Wishes Message Board.  I colored it with gel pens and a Dove Blender pen, and really like the way it turned out.  I cut it out and embossed it using a die set I got recently - Spellbinders Tile Works.  I wasn't sure how much I'd like that set, but I REALLY like how it turned out on this card!  I highlighted a bit of the embossing with one of my gel pens and it really frames it nicely.  I added it to the front of the card with foam tape for a bit of dimension.  I think I'll probably add a greeting to the front of the card, but we were not supposed to add anything that wasn't already in the kit, (though fortunately, we didn't have to use everything in the kit) so I'm posting it without. :)  

There were several other pretty papers and decorative elements, but I chose to go fairly simple.  I used dies from the same Spellbinder's set to cut out the center of the patterned paper before gluing the card topper on.  And then decided to make it into  frame for the stamped sentiment inside.  The frame is embossed, though you can't really tell that in the picture, and adhered with foam tape.
