Kris' Kit


This is the kit that Kris sent. I absolutely love how this card turned out. I love the layers and how such a small image ended up not looking so tiny on a big card. I followed Mojo 72 for the layout. For the little Memory Box penguin, I colored everything in with Koh-i-noor pencils. I then cut out the heart and raised it with a dimensional. I went over the heart and rose with Bubble Gum Shimmerz. I kinda goofed up in a good way on the button. I put too much Crystal Effects on it when I went glue it down, so it was everywhere. The good thing is, to fix it I just covered the entire button with Crystal Effects. Then to make it look like it fit in with the rest of the card, I went over the heart and rose with Crystal Effects too. You can still see the Shimmerz underneath it!! For the sentiment, I cut out some circles with my Nesties. I then inked up one of the hearts from Papertrey Ink's Heart Prints set and stamped it with Fresh Snow. It gave a very faded, but perfectly outlined heart on the pattern paper. To view all of the cards made with this kit, click here.
