I was sent the Carnival King paper collection to design with - and what a huge collection of fun summery goodness that package contained! I sat down and made several cards to share with you today and barely touched all the elements. While I haven't joined the Project Life bandwagon yet, I think I may need to get some photos developed so I can scrapbook with it too, I believe!
(Good news! This pack is part of the giveaway!)
Since I'm not a huge scrapbooker right now, I thought it would be fun to show how wonderful this kit can be to created quick and easy cards using the elements from the kit - stickers, borders, die cuts, 3x4 and 4x6 journaling cards, banners, etc.
So, let's get started with my projects for today!
For my first card, I added some glitter to the white stripes on this fun 'amusing' card and then wrapped some black shimmer twine around it. After rounding the corners, I added it to the card front and embellished with a clip and a couple of stickers also included in the kit.
My next card is pretty busy with lots of elements from the kit. The card itself is a card in the kit (4x6) that I embellished and used as a full card front. I added the twines around the border and the label - Maraschino, solid maraschino, and caribbean.
After I glued the twine down, I sprinkled some glitter over the entire project. It stuck to the glue and twine just the way I wanted it to. Then, I added some die cuts, stickers, and even the 'celebrate' flag, tucking the toothpick behind the ticket die cut.
Next, I embellished a tag to go on a gift bag. Once again, I used one of the 3x4 cards from the kit and just used some stickers and border die cuts to embellish it. Lots of twines for the tag topper - solid maraschino, black shimmer, and marigold.
My last card uses Caribbean twine wrapped around the top of the fabric banner border along with a journaling card that I decorated for a birthday card. I added some glitter to the bottom blue strip for some added sparkle.
Now for the fun stuff - the giveaways from both companies!
