Hi FJ Friends!
Do you like making cards? They are the perfect way to use up bits and pieces that you might have leftover in your kit…and they’re also the perfect way to brighten up someone’s day! Who doesn’t love receiving a handmade card in the mail? Today I have two fun ideas to share with you featuring the beautiful Taylor Kit.
The first card makes use of the packaging strip that comes in the paper pack each month. I love to keep this piece and use it on projects whenever I can as I love that it has a strip of each of the papers in a smaller scale all in one place.
I cut the patterned strip out, then cut it in half and positioned it down the middle of a plain white 6 x 4 inch piece of Essentials White Cardstock. I then added stitching using my sewing machine to add lots of texture.
I punched a small hole at the top of the scalloped oval die cut and threaded some white twine into it. I then adhered the die cut to the centre of the card and stapled the twine to the top of the card front.
The mustard die cut bow was attached to the top of the scalloped oval with foam dots then I added the word “thankful” using the Essentials Puffy Alphabet Stickers in gold. I typed the words “for you” onto a scrap piece of cardstock, added it under the “thankful” sentiment and stitched across it to finish off the card front. The finished piece was then adhered to the front of a plain white card.
For the second card I added a 5.5 x 3.5 inch piece of the green swiss dot paper to the centre of a 6 x 4 inch piece of white cardstock and stitched around the edge.
I then cut a floral panel from the floral paper and layered it on top of a scrunched piece of vellum from my stash and a Taylor journaling card then stitched across the top. I threaded a Denise charm and a white tassel onto some white twine and attached the twine to a mustard miniwide paper clip at the top right of the journaling card.
I stamped the phrase “you’ve got this” from the Hope stamp set onto a mustard label, adhered it under the journaling card then stitched across it to finish it off. The card front was then adhered onto a plain white card.
Now I have two cards on hand ready for when I need them. I hope I’ve inspired you to create some Taylor Kit cards too.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
