Since fall is in full swing, we are going to make cards with our very first birthday card making kit for Fall, Bountiful Blessings: https://annagriffin.com/product/bountiful-blessings-card-kit/! This lovely kit makes 24 cards, and is packed to the brim with lovely fall and autumn themed card bases, diecuts and stickers. From gold foiled leaves to pretty pumpkins and fall leaf stickers, this kit has everything you need to make and send birthday cards for all the fall birthdays in the near future.
Today, we are going to show you how to use this kit to make pretty cards, and then how to take them a step further and pump them up!
Wish your friends and family the very best with all of the fall imagery in our Bountiful Blessings Card Kit. If you love fall like we do, you’ll adore the color palette, gold foil diecuts and dimensional fall stickers.
Use some of your favorite materials like our vellum sheets to create textured layers. https://annagriffin.com/product/solid-everyday-vellum-bundle/
Add one of the collage card toppers with foam adhesive.
To add extra oomph, layer in some of the fall stickers to add visual interest and color.
A beautiful card is as easy as adding one of the card toppers and a couple fo stickers to the card base of your choice.
To pump up that same topper, add fussy cut frames, die cut layers and embellishments to take your card from simply beautiful to fancy and fabulous!
To give your card bases texture, use your favorite embossing folders to impress a pretty pattern.
Keep the texture going by adding another embossed layer and sanding the design to show off the image.
Using your large dies, create diecuts in fall colors help to accent the special card toppers and pieces in this kit.
Work with the colors in the kit to create lots of texture and movement.
More is more when it comes to card making!
Look around your craft room for inspiration. Don’t the dies from Gentleman’s Study make a wonderful, geometric background?
Finally, embossed vellum is a pretty way to pump up your Bountiful Blessings cards! https://annagriffin.com/product/solid-everyday-vellum-bundle/
So much fun! We will have this tutorial available for you this week only, and then it will move into our extensive library in Charm School. We hope that you have a blast mixing, matching and pumping up your fall birthday cards in this kit! Share your cards with us on social media; we would love to see your interpretations!
Bye for now,
