Tin of Cards kit

Sunday my hubs and I took some quiet time and went and hung out at Caribou Coffee for a few hours. I decided to bring my Tin of Cards kit with me. I have had it since the catalog release in June and life just got in the way of making it. Life moving, health, death of my mom and more. 



I still might offer this as a class, but in truth I wanted to make this for me. I love tins and the colors in this one are "just so Sandy". 

Here is what I found: 

The instructions are pretty darn good. I put it together in the recommended order. Something I normally do not do. 

One thing not mentioned in the directions, use whatever greetings you want on each set of cards. Except for the first set, when I literally did what was in the directions by stamping all four greetings the same on the multicolor background set. The subsequent sets I did one each of congrats, thank you, happy birthday and hello in whatever the coordinating stamps recommended. 

Use the new finetipped glue pen 138309 for the smaller parts. I had only green Tombo glue with me and a small amount of SNAIL. 

Use SNAIL on the back of foil pieces not glue. Or maybe it's just me. I end up trailing glue onto the foil and it looks messy. Use Dimensionals. Since I did this in a coffee shop and not at home I had to improvise where Dimensionals were suggested. Not a deal breaker but it would have made the "tousle the thread" direction a little easier. I used SNAIL and it worked. 



The cards are very cute in the kit. They use a lot of dimension and nice accessories like woodcuts, foil pieces and more. You sure can add your own ribbon and more to this kit. 

This kit will be available in my shop until May 31st. Buy it today!

Thank you for stopping by! And as always it "needs a ribbon"! -Sandy

Keep being creative, Sandy
