Artful Delight: sweet.



Hello!

Today is my day over on the Artful Delight blog!

I've been having so much fun with the January Card kit!

I was determined to use the Studio Calico envelopes that came in the kit.  They are constructed out of heavy duty kraft cardstock and I just love the pops of colors they have.


I'm a big fan of gift cards, I love to give them AND receive them!

I was going to originally pop the gift cards in, the traditional way, but then thought about slicing one of the sides off of the envelope with my pinking shears.

On my first card, I decided to replace the thread that bound the flaps together with twine that I had in my stash:


I used a die cut from the kit and BAM, it was done.

For card number 2, I kept the thread in place and rather than use a die cut, I stamped a sentiment from the Paper Smooches set, We Totally Click:


Super duper easy smeasy!

I was inspired by 



This is my last post using the January kit so I thought that I'd go ahead and post my other projects that I designed using this month's kit:




Such an awesome card kit:
