Today I'm sharing a few cards I made using the last few sheets of cardstock & patterned paper from my August Counterfeit kit. I created a 6th one and forgot to photograph it before mailing it... which is actually a good thing because it means I didn't wait until the last minute to mail it! LOL Sorry about the shadows, it was so cloudy when I photographed these cards. If you click on the photos you can enlarge them for a more detailed view.
First up, a slightly shabby thank you card, perfect for teachers & school administrators. I added a lot of kraft ink to distress the edges of the card, the focal image panel, & the doily. I also added kraft twine & a mini button to embellish the card.
I created this card for my son who's b-day is in a couple of months. I'm still trying to figure out where the time went. I will be a Mother to a teenager... craziness! LOL I let the patterned paper take center stage as I usually do when I create masculine cards. I added foam tape, distress ink, and a mini paper clip to embellish this card.
The concept of creating a kit really helped me to reduce how much time I spent trying to decide which products to use. I ended up creating 4 layouts & 6 cards and I still have some paper scraps left over.
Did you create a kit this month? I'm looking forward to creating again using September's kit, maybe you'll participate too?
