April 2007 Kit
Very simple card to make: Cut a rectangle from the vine paper just smaller than the card. Ink edges, adhere to card. Cut square from striped paper (about 1.5 inches square) and ink edges. Adhere to center of card. Cut small pieces of green/white ribbon, cut ends at angle. Bunch of other edge of ribbon and adhere to center of square. Use glue dots to stick flower on top of ribbon.

To make: cut strips of ribbon and adhere with glue dots. Trim the sparkle letter "Q" into an "O" and adhere X and O with glue dots. Adhere small pieces of ric-rac to form a photo corner. All done!

This card was a lot of fun to make! I laid down the glitter rub-ons one at a time. The easiest, least messy way to do these is to put a little glitter on your finger and rub it on, rather than pouring it on. That also allows you to do two-tone flowers without too much cutting on the rub-ons. After adhering the flowers, I embellished with an American Crafts black pen and HS jewels.

I used ModPodge to adhere paper and elements to the can. I also lightly painted the silver "edges" on the can. The chipboard flower was easy to cover by adhering to the paper and cutting out with an exactly knife. The whole flower is stuck to a painted wooden chopstick.

I cut two ovals out of cardstock, then covered them with strips of paper cut with deco edge scissors. I used a piece of floral foam inside the can to hold the flowers in place and two shish kabob skewers (inked with the MM ink) for my stems. I finished the project by adding some easter grass to hide my foam.

I punched out the chipboard flower, then cut the outside of the chipboard for the flower outline. The extra title letters are American Crafts rub-ons from the catalog.

On this layout, I took some of the green glitter and mixed it with green paint, then painted my letter D. The rub-ons are American Crafts & Junkitz from our catalog. The journaling is computer generated.

I drew the chicks freehand, then cut around them. The title was printed on the computer. This layout is designed for two 3 1/2 x 5 pics and the blue block at the top is for journaling.
