4 Quick & Easy Hunkydory Cards

I've been running low on all occasion cards and have a long list of people I want to send cards to, so decided to use a kit to make some quick cards using the Floral Shimmer card kit from Hunkydory. 

The first card (above) is an interlocking gate fold card.  These cards are SO quick and easy to make with Hunkydory kits because they usually have die cut focals that are nested within several frames - that all come apart.  That makes it easy to pick a focal with a frame that's slightly larger than it, but the same shape.  I use these for the "interlocking" part - gluing the focal only to the left side of the gate fold and the frame only to the right.  For this particular card I added a sentiment piece - also glued only to the left.

This particular kit was designed to make a set of note cards and a little holder for them.   I didn't have a need for that, so took the note card bases and did my own thing.  Above is a sympathy card, below is a "thinking of you" card.

For the 4th card, I wanted to use a coordinating printed card stock piece.  I ended up making a long sideways card from it.  The outside has a bit of velvet glittery ribbon and a die cut.  

The inside is another piece of the paper with another piece of ribbon - no die cut.
