I’m a huge fan of project kits as many of you know. So I pulled out the You Are Amazing card kit, added some extra cardstock and envelopes, got creative, and doubled the amount of cards intended. Instead of making just 16 cards, I was able to get 32 this way!
This kit coordinates with the You Are Amazing stamp set. And my original plan was to use those sentiment images when making these 32 cards. But then I remembered that during Sale-a-Bration (a great promotional period happening now), a person can earn a free product with a minimum purchase of $50 US. Because I added the white cardstock & envelopes, I wanted to save some money elsewhere and use one of those Sale-a-Bration free stamp sets instead.
And now I’m excited to share with you what I came up with!
I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago step-by-step directions for doubling the cards from this kit by adding Basic White Cardstock & Envelopes, some Gold Faceted Gems, the free Approaching Perfection Stamp Set, and a couple extra tools. And now I’m sharing 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 post), 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.
