The first thing I did was to use the GORGEOUS Club Scrap ribbon with my Bow-It-All from Zutter to create bows to jazz up the front of the cards:
When I had used up all the CS ribbon, I headed to my stash to find more ribbon. I am having a blast making bows this year. Here's what those look like:
The next thing I did differently was that I didn't use the black panel with the green panel to frame the art. (If you look above at my first two cards, the art is framed with red and black panels; the third and fourth cards have dark green panels only). Although I love the way the black looks with the red, I didn't think it popped with the green. Or maybe I'm just old and can't see worth a darn. Whatever. That left me with 6 black panels which was more than enough to trim down to frame all the sentiments to go inside the cards which made them pop which made me very happy. Take a look:
You get everything you need to make twelve 5x7 cards with this kit. They are beautiful and elegant and a snap to assemble (even when you change or add stuff like I did). Check out the Greetings To Go club at Club Scrap!
