Today I am sharing my third and final set of cards using the July Collections by Kaisercraft.
This time I'm using the Botanica Collection. If I had to choose a favourite from this month’s collections, I really don’t think I could. They are all so beautiful and so easy to use! For this set of cards I started with P1880 Habitat 12x 12 Paper.
I love it when Kaisercraft makes these little 3×4 pictures because they are so perfect for a quick and easy collection of cards. These little botanical illustrations have such a natural feel to them I thought I would coordinate them with a CB 155 Kraft card stock base.
I designed a little card sketch featuring the Botanical illustrations. I chose five pictures and matched them with a background page from the PP973 Botanical 6 1/2 inch Paper Pad.
I layered EM 405 Paper Doilies underneath each picture. A tip is to cut your doily in half, then your doilies can be stretched a little further, which is handy if you love them as much as I do and use them often.
I also layered tags from the EM429 Just For You Tag Pack. I love the texture the string adds to the card and the natural colour really works in with the theme of this little card set.
I chose some sentiment stickers from ST922 Clear Stickers – Happy Birthday and ST926 Clear Stickers – Friends. I adhered these stickers to white card and then layered the white card onto Kraft card. These sentiment stickers are a fantastic way to go as an alternative to stamping your sentiment.
I used CS223 Clear Stamp- Botanica to stamp some leaves onto Kraft card using white ink.
Then I teamed the leaves with some Mini Paper Blooms in five colours: F659 Misty, F645 Honey, F658 Dusty Pink, F651 Sunset and F650 Olive.
