Bling Bling Merry Everything!


I am loving the Merry Everything card kit!  The kit includes materials for ten cards. I rarely make duplicates of the same card, so you will see a variety of cards from my kit contents. This is another card that I have added layers and a little bling. I added the gold foil layers and gold sequins to set this card apart from the basic  kit.  In case you missed my earlier posts, here is a look at the kit contents-


There is also a coordinating Merry Everything Tag Kit available for your holiday gifts!

Merry Everything Thanks


The Merry Everything card kit is not just for Christmas cards....they work great for Thank You cards as well!  The card  kit comes with blank gold embossed die cuts...so you can add any sentiment that you wish.  I am always in need of thank you cards and love the bold sentiment against the pine bough wreath. This is another blinged up version of the card kit, as I did cut up the base and add a layer of gold foil.  The gold foil is hard to photograph, but looks great in person!  In case you missed it, I did a intro post to the Merry Everything kit HERE.  I have entered my card in the Holiday Pines Challenge at The Paper Players-

Poppies Sympathy


I am still on my learning curve with the Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.  I love the bright vivid colors, so I am determined to master them!  I struggle with watercoloring......mostly because I am an in the lines type. This card was actually take 2.  I had colored in my poppies on take 1....and then attempted to add in the color wash on the background. Did not go as planned....and I could not handle the bleed of the poppy colors into my background.  On the second attempt....I colorwashed my background first.  I let the background dry and then went back in and colored the flowers.  The first panel did not go to waste though....I cut out the flowers and popped them up onto the second panel for added dimension.  I love the effect.  Here is a close up of the dimension-


The added dimension adds so much to the card.  Had it not been for my coloring issues on the first panel, I am not certain I would have taken the time to color the poppies twice.

Merry Everything


Need Christmas cards in a hurry?  The Merry Everything Card Kit is just the ticket! Thinking card kits might not be your thing???  You can always add to the kit to give it your own personal touch. I love the versatility of the Close To My Heart card kits.  I admit, I do often cut them up and add on some layers.  I always complete a few cards just as the kit intended, to have cards for you to compare to.  The choice is yours....quick and simple or add a few extra steps to make them uniquely yours.  My first card is step up from the basic card kit.  I cut the card apart and layered with a gold foil background.  I heat embossed the Merry Christmas image in gold.  I then added some gold glitter gems to my wreath background for a little bling.  We all have different crafting styles, and if you are in the non-bling fan club, here is a look at the original card.


This card was created as the kit was intended.  I did heat emboss my image in gold.  You could always stamp in a coordinating ink color to save the time of embossing.  The kit contains ten card bases, envelopes and die cuts.  The stamp sentiments are sold separately.  Here is a look at the kit contents-
