ive cards with envelopes all done with different punched shapes. I have used sentiments from Butterfly Bonanza, Itty Bitty Greetings & Peaceful Moments.
Each card has a white card insert and extra punched pieces or patterned paper can be added to the insert or the envelope to make it coordinate. Also included are strips of foam tape to use on the donut and patterned paper tag punch card.
Please read through ALL the instructions for each card or you may end up in strife.
Rip the wood patterned paper in half lengthwise (a little off centre) and glue down to the Early Expresso mat layer leaving a gap of brown showing. Layer this piece onto the Crushed Curry mat and then onto the card base.
Layer daisy punch outs together in pairs, offsetting the petals to give a fuller looking flower, glue on a brown centre to them. Stamp the sentiment on the crumb cake strip of card stock. Optional I sponged the edges of my flower in Soft Suede ink to mute the colour a little. I added glue just to the centre of my flowers when I stuck them onto the card front so that I could slide the leaves beneath the petals, some of the leaves I snipped into singles and doubles before gluing down. NB: for some kits the patterned wood paper may be different to that shown here on my sample
Glue the brick embossed white mat layer to the green layer & then the card base. Stamp the sentiment, add two metal brads and flag the end of the strip before gluing that to the card. Optional I sponged the pizza crust, cheese & pepperoni pieces with Soft Suede ink prior to starting to assemble the pizza slice. Glue the pizza cheese to the pizza crust base, add the pepperoni, optional for extra detail I added some Cajun Craze dots to the pepperoni, glue on the capsicum, olives and onion. Add the pizza slice to your card.
Glue the red piece of card onto the green card base then one of the white layers on top of that. I started with the green circle at its tail and then kept adding them overlapping until it came time to add the red head. Add the eyes and mouth. I drew in the feelers and feet with black Stampin' Write marker. Add a sentiment of your choice, I punched mine out with the Word Window Punch, but flagging it by hand and layering with the extra Real Red card strip would also work.
There are two pieces of black mat card stock - it is important to layer the larger of the two onto your card base first. On the smaller black card mat I started to add the shapes by gluing down the full tag shape on the top right first, then adding in the other shapes in rows above and below that. The sentiment was added using a couple of foam strip pieces. I turn the black piece over and trim the shapes flush to the mat layer from the back as it gives a better finish that trimming from the front. I reused the cut off pieces to fill in the gaps. Glue the black piece down onto the other black mat layer.
The largest white card mat is the insert to write on inside the card, so don't mix that up with the piece at the bottom of the donut box. Glue the Bermuda Bay mat down onto the card base. Glue each donut icing to a base. Using the different punchies or cutting your own e.g. the thin strips decorate the donuts. Glue each of the donuts down onto the small white mat piece. Add the white frame over the donuts using strips of foam tape. Wrap the striped Bakers Twine around the donuts like a parcel, tie securely before tying a bow and trimming off the ends. Stamp the sentiment and either punch it our or trim it down and add it over the donuts with a small piece of foam strip to make it look like it's tied onto the twine, but in reality it isn't. Glue the donut box down onto the card.
