Are you one of those people who turns up their nose at kits? Well it’s time you took another look! Check out this collection of projects. All were made using the Good as Gold Card Kit (FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a £45 order) as a starting point.
The kit, pictured above, is designed to make eight note cards. It features eight spotty card bases with a hint of gold, plus all the elements you need to complete your cards – in three languages!
Let’s look at each project…
First we have a Thank You card, made using the kit and nothing but the kit, following one of the suggestions on the packet. What I haven’t shown (doh!) is the matching envelope. You get eight Crumb Cake note card sized envelopes with this kit, and each one comes with a gold envelope liner.
Next up is this cute little box. Again, this uses nothing but the kit elements, but I’ve turned the scored card base into a box instead, following the excellent instructions of US demonstrator Dawn Olchefske.
But what if you want to add to the kit? Here are a couple of cards I created using limited supplies, but still with the kit as a base. First I made a standard-sized card (A5 folded in half) and embellished it using the kit elements. I sacrificed the envelope liner to create a gold layer under a section of the spotty card base.
Finally, I made another note card, using another piece of card base as a DSP panel, matting it with Basic Black to give it extra pop. Another strip of the same envelope liner formed the gold strip. If you’re a canny crafter, you could even get a strip like this from an envelope liner and STILL use it to line the envelope, as the flap will still be fully lined. If that makes any sense at all!
And, if you’re crafting with the benefits of all your supplies to hand, which I wasn’t when I made these, you can go as wild as you like, adding stamped images, different cardstock, buttons and more.
If you’d like to show your friends how easy crafting can be, I’d love to come and demonstrate this kit. Please get in touch if you’d like to book a party – Sale-a-Bration is rapidly running out and I don’t have many dates left, so hurry!
