This Kit is a Hit

When I saw this kit in the NEW Occasions Catalog, I knew it would be one of my first purchases. Here are my cards (modified a bit from the pictures in the kit), and I LOVE how they turned out!

The Birthday Bright Project Kit came with all the supplies to create 12 cards (with envelopes) and 12 gift tags. I don’t use gift tags too often, so I decided to make them into cards instead 🙂

I created the tags as pictured in the kit, then added 2 layers of cardstock and card base. The black cardstock layer measures 5″x 3-3/4″ and the white/green layer measures 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″. Embossing folders were used to add interest.

The candle card is 3×3. I snailed the silver tag onto a scrap of Emerald Envy cardstock and fussy-cut around the tag to create the outline. The candle (which is left-over pieces from the shaker card) is stamped in Emerald Envy and So Saffron.

The card on the left matches the one in the kit, except I added some texture with the Big Shot and Embossing Folder. And don’t throw away the birthday cake punch-out! It can easily be used to create another quick and easy card!

Once again, I used my Big Shot and embossing folder to add texture to this shaker card. I cut the black cardstock base in half, and trimmed it to make a mat. Then I used a piece of Emerald Envy cardstock to create a new, more colorful, card base.

I used the other half of the black cardstock base (from the shaker card) and trimmed it to make a mat for this fun pennant card, and used an embossing folder for texture. It’s hard to see in the picture, but I added a little Wink of Stella to the “wish big” greeting to make it sparkle.

*Tip – Use your paper trimmer to cut the pennants in half, using the score mark as your guide. Then stick the triangles directly onto the bakers twine/string and whisper white cardstock. This is much faster (and easier) than trying to wrap the pennants around the string.
