September Deal of the Month ... fresh ideas

Good Morning Everyone Summer here with another look at the September Deal of the month. I don't know if you realized but there are 2 themed deals this month ... BOY & GIRL. I received the boy themed kit to play with. I challenged myself to do something a little unexpected with some of the embellishments. Here are 3 cards with some fresh ideas ...


(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper Cosmo Cricket, Punch/Scissors Fiskars, Alphas American Crafts, It's A Boy Felts/Epoxy Brads Creative Charms, Gem Stickers Creative Charms)


The felt boat accent is from the "It's a Boy" set. I love the idea of taking this from something "baby" to a whole new level. Then I sprinkled some additional gems around the card just like I showed you in my "Bling it Up" post from July.

This card is super simple. I simply added french knots for eyes and pop dotted the ducks on my card. This card follows the rule of 3's I tend to subconsciously follow when I scrapbook or make cards. First I tend to embellish in 3's (or odd numbers) and second I weighted the design elements to the bottom third of the card. This could easily be repeated with any element and greeting.

This is my favorite card from the group. I like the idea of using this card for a 16th birthday or changing out the greeting to say "Congratulations", the card would be perfect for the new driver in your life. Notice how I used the gem stickers in all the sizes this gives the card flow and interest.


I hope you have a great Wednesday. Happy Crafting :)
