Love me some cards by Kandis Smith

As I have mentioned before--I'm a little obsessed with cards! So I made a couple for you using our fabulous February kit:

 How fantastic is that green polka dot paper? And it perfectly matches sally's dress! So I had to add my little wild card! I added a shortened "Thanks" to the side with my Graphic 45 letters, tied up some peacock seam binding in a cute bow and topped yellow lace and a girl's paperie button.

This one is on the simple side--I let the wild card do the talking. I just covered my card in Flour Sack paper and ran a strip of yellow cardstock down the middle. Then I machine stitched the sides. I thought it needed another chipboard frame--painted in robin's egg blue acrylic paint then sanded. I cut it in half and added it above my wild card and added some seam binding again! Love it!

Grab yourself some scraps from the Feb. kit and get to making some cards!
