I’ve been playing around with another new kit that debuted on June 4th in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog – the Gorgeous Posies Project Kit. This kit is not all-inclusive which means it doesn’t include the recommended stamps, inks and adhesives. Those are all sold separately. But that sometimes is a good thing especially for those who already have adhesives and inks. It’s also a good thing for those that love the project (in this case 16 gorgeous cards). Because without including the stamp set in the cost of the kit, it’s easier to buy multiple kits to make more! (No one wants multiples of the same stamp set.)
Here is the kit.
And here are the cards the kit instructs how to make.
Well…I altered these cards slightly, added some extra cardstock and envelopes, threw in a few embellishments and doubled the cards that this kit can make. So (not counting the stamps, inks, adhesives, and shipping & tax) instead of the cost of the consumables being $2 US per card, it turns out to be only $1.18 US per card.
I just shared live on YouTube how to make twice as many cards from the Gorgeous Posies kit by adding Whisper White Cardstock, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, and a few extra Whisper White Envelopes to the suggested additional supplies. And then I shared that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for these cards I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Measurements for 32 cards…
- Whisper White Cardstock
- Eight pieces that are 4-1/4” x 11” scored parallel to the short end at 5-1/2”
- Eight pieces that are 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored parallel to the short end at 4-1/4”
- Twine from the kit
- Four pieces that are 8”
- Four pieces that are 10” (or more)
- Ribbon from the kit
- Four pieces that are 12”
Here are close-up photos of the 8 cards I demonstrated. You would make 4 of each of these to get your 32 total cards. And don’t forget (as I shared in the video) you’ll probably be able to make a few more with the left over pieces.
You can find the current kits in my online store by clicking here. (And then there are Paper Pumpkin kits that come month-to-month as a subscription. These are all-inclusive. I blog about them quite often since they are amazing!)
