Edited on 9/26.....The card kit and other new shop items are now available here.
Hey there, a few new items coming to the shop. This week I have a new card kit to share called Mixed Greetings Card Kit. It's a simple kit to assemble that comes with blank punched circles. You can any variety of stamped sentiments or images to create endless card combinations. Or you can purchase my Happy Stamper add-on and receive your circles stamped with the images you see in the photo below. This is a great kit to build up your own personal card stash or it's a great way to add cards to your stash you've been saving up to give as holiday gifts for teachers, family and friends.
You'll receive all the items in the kit unassembled. Simply use your own adhesive to assemble the cards. You'll end up with 5 completed cards with blank envelopes + 5 brown paper sacks with 5 blank tags for gift giving. Tuck the cards inside the sacks along with a small gift. Tuck a gift inside the sack and keep the card on the outside. Or use the cards all by themselves and save the gift sacks for another use. It's all up to you.
The cards in the kit have a pretty floral background paper from Fancy Pants. I topped the card off with a printed hang tag, sentiment circle, a strip of coordinating polka dot patterned paper, Washi tape (you'll receive a full roll in your kit) and a tied vintage button. Feel free to further embellish the cards with stitching, stapling etc to add more detail.
My tip for this kit: Lightly adhere the printed hang tag to the card front. Apply Washi tape over the tag, placing the tag string under the Washi tape. This keeps the string in place and adds visual interest to the card. Add the punched circle piece to the card front using pop dots for added dimension. Then finish up with a tied button.
I'll also have a few more shop items along with the card kit. A favorite of mine are some Vintage Finds packets that will be offered in very limited quantities.
And that wraps up my upcoming shop update. The tags, envelopes and sacks used for this card kit are also available as individual items in the shop. You can view the full shop listings here. The cards from the kit would also be very pretty packaged in the vellum envelopes. For the brown paper sacks, any of my grid labels would be great to run through a vintage typewriter for a personal greeting. Just in time for Fall projects are the Autumn Kraft Packaging Kit, Striped Treat Sacks Kit, Dripping Doilies and Vintage Halloween Buttons.
My shop update with the card kit and other items shown today will happen tomorrow before noon. Look for tweets and Facebook updates. :) I'll have another post soon showing you how you can fancy up the cards in the kits with some of my new shop items + I have a fun idea of how to use those vintage button cards to create gift packaging tags. Stay tuned.
