Hi Peeps! Look another non Saturday Post! I loved making the Donut Box so much this week that I decided I would give actually making the cards in the May Kit. Oops! I have made 8 cards and not one of them is card the way it was designed.
I started my day making a few cards I found on Pinterest. I love to CASE cards because it inspires me to try to make my own originals!
The first card was CASED from Rachel Tessman I pretty much made it exactly how she did except I changed the “I” to “we” because my cards are sent from me AND my husband!
The next card was cased from Debbie Henderson with the addition of the other mice Rachel created.
This final card was really CASED/Inspired by a card made by Rick Adkins. I used his format and changed it up just a bit.
So, after I felt confident enough to make my own version, I was on a roll!
For some reason when I saw the “envelope” that came with the kit, I saw a pull card! I just adhered it to a card base as an extra surprise. I loved the outcome!
Next I made a Penny Slider. Whenever I see a round image my brain thinks it has to be a penny slider LOL.
I have a short video on my Facebook page. Sadly WordPress doesn’t have a video feature on its free site, I hope you hop on over to see the coffee cup in action!
My final (for now) alternate is an easel card. Honestly I didn’t really understand the cardbase in the kit, you get 3, so it makes 2 of this style card quite nicely!
So there you have it, 8 alternate ideas with a lot of product left for more creativity. I may even make one of each card in the way it was intended, LOL
