Card Kits – Tips and Techniques

Have you ever made a craft project which included some techniques and/or tips that you wanted to remember?  That has happened to me several times.  I always think I will remember the technique or the tips but of course I don’t.  So I have decided to start collecting all the tips and techniques that I use and post them to my blog.  It will give me a place to refer back to and hopefully it will provide inspiration to you on your creative journey.

I love card kits.  Kits are a great starting point but sometimes I really want to add more to make it my own.  I created cards using the Close To My Heart Let’s Part Cardmaking Workshop Your Way Kit.  Close to My Heart has several scrapbooking and card kits available.  The kits provide you with all the products along with the instructions in order to complete the kits which I really appreciate.  The below cards are the original cards in the kits.

I really wanted to make some variation to the original cards.  There are several different techniques such as using die cuts, fussy cutting and layering, to name a few, that I used to create this cards.  In future blog posts I will discuss each of the techniques.

Happy Crafting.
