I used the Boutique Boxes Designer Printed Kit (pg 25 from the Spring Catalog $7.95 plus S&H)  to make some fun cards for my next card class.  This kit includes notecards, gift card holders, buttons, bakers twine, dimensionals, and die cutes like borders, feathers, buttons, scallops, tags and so much more.  It is a fun kit and it can make so many more things than the gift card holders.

 I designed this one from the feather inspiration.  I cut the border die cut in half and used that at the top.  Then I poked out the feather die cuts and used the negative image as a stencil and used crumb cake ink and sponged inside the negative image.  You see a little bit of white on the top stenciled image - that is because I thought I would craft vanilla ink and it did not look good.  So I switched to crumb cake and thought I covered it all, but it "bled" through a little bit.  I will keep this for my "template" and make another one to send out.  Do you do that too?  If it has a small mistake, smudge, etc, keep it as a "template" to remember how to make another one to give away?

I put a score line down the two solid feathers and glued only one side of them down. The printed feather is totally glued down.  I used the die circle and the button and bakers twine.  I used my Itty Bitty Banners stamp set for the sentiment and stamped it on summer starfruit cs with gray ink.  I cut out the banner and glued it in a wave" for some added height and texture. Also tied twine on that banner.

Hope you enjoyed this card from the Boutique Boxes Kit in the Summer Catalog.  Stay tuned tomorrow for another card made from this kit.  This was so fun to have almost all the supplies in front of me before I started creating with them.  I AM LOVING THESE KITS.
