Card Kit Make Over Week 1

Today I am excited to share with you my first week on Card Kit Makeover. I will be showing 2 cards a week over the next 3 weeks that I have transformed from a kit. If you are like me I am always looking for a great buy and I came across this card kit awhile back and bought it. This weekend I decided to put them together but when I got out the pieces I decided I really needed to do more with them and so I did. My first card photo is how I tweaked the original card. I used the card base, pink and rose dotted pieces that came in the kit along with the stitching RubOns. I added my Kaisercraft Happy Birthday RubOns along with some banners that I stamped with my Hero Arts Hello Flags and Memento Black Ink.

Here is the original card that you were to make from the kit.

As you can see the Kaisercraft RubOns and Hero Arts Hello Flags really make the card very special. Notice that I placed my flags on pop dots after I cut them and added some tan twine for a streamer.

Here is the second card that I would like to share with you. This is the original and here is what I did with it..

Again I used the card base, scallop edge and Thank You RubOn that came in the kit.

But....before I added the scallop edge and Thank You RubOns I stamped the top right edge and bottom left edge of the card with my Tim Holtz Filigree stamp. (This is one of my favorite stamps and I use it quite often) I then added my scalloped edge, added a piece of light blue twill ribbon. I stamped both ends of my ribbon using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. To finish this card I placed my RubOns just off center of the card and added a fabulous dimensional silk flower to left front of the RubOn.

I hope you have enjoyed my card kit make over and look for the next two that I will be sharing next week from the same kit.
