On July 8th I shared how to add just a few basic supplies and double the cards in the Gorgeous Posies Project Kit. If you didn’t catch that post and video, click here to see the recording of how I did that (or watch the video below if you are already on my website).
At the end of this video, I shared an idea for making 9 more cards using the leftover extras from the kit. Yes, even after turning 16 cards into 32 there ARE extras! It’s an awesome kit. So I assembled those super easy cards, and I’m sharing them with you today. SUPER easy, and still pretty! I think I’ll be gifting these to my mother-in-law. She enjoys getting cards that she can send out to others.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Measurements for these 9 extra cards…
- Whisper White (or Whisper White Thick) Cardstock
- Four pieces that are 4-1/4” x 11” scored parallel to the short end at 5-1/2”
- Five pieces that are 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored parallel to the short end at 4-1/4”
- Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper
- Nine pieces that are 3″ x 5-1/2″
- After cutting and scoring the cardstock, use a Bone Folder to fold and crease all your card bases.
- Adhere the flocked vellum sheets with sponged on Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Get glue in the corners, too. Press down while drying so the glue bonds well.
- Stamp all the sentiments.
- Adhere the other pieces with Dimensionals (all the sentiment pieces and some of the floral/leaf pieces) or Glue Dots.
- There will be leftover ribbon and twine from the kit, too. So either of those could be added to embellish these cards a bit more.
Here are my 9 cards. I made two of these three layouts…
…and one each of these layouts.
