National Papercrafting Month - Welcome Home Wreath Kit

Yeah! it's a thing.....  and I'm all over it.... For the entire month of January get your hands on this beautiful succulent wreath.  It's so easy to put together. Want it for FREE contact me for more details.


So let's think outside the wreath, the wreath is beautiful but what about a beautiful set of cards?
CTMH Welcome Home Kit
Additional  materials used to create these cards are:

 Love Thin Cuts
Hello & Thanks Thin Cuts
Hearts Thin Cuts
Happy Birthday Thin Cuts
XOXO Thin Cuts
White Daisy Cardstock
White Daisy Ink
Black Cardstock
Black Ink
Watercolour Paints
Watercolour Brushes
Gold Shimmer Brush
Sponge Daubers

The beauty is by selecting just a few of these items you can actually get the wreath kit for FREE.

Here are the basic instructions:
  • Ink distress the dark green succulents with black
  • Ink distress the two tone green with white
  • Ink distress two tone blue with white
  • Ink distress the card based and embossed pieces with black
  • Using watercolour paint added splatters of black and white 

Now how did I get so many succulents.  Well, since these are cards I separated the blue ones light with light and dark with dark.  You get 4 instead of  2.  When I was making the white roses, I used the negative part of the rosette and made two more white roses, you can actually make three but the larger one didn't turn out so good for me.  I also used the banner piece on two of the cards then cut sections of the wood grain pattern paper and made two more.  All and all you end up with 7 beautiful cards.  Not the mailing kind, these will need to be hand delivered with love.
