KI Memories: 2 cards and a tag


Here’s a word… and awesome projects from KI Memories Design Team Member Gretchen McElveen

I know, I know, the new "Flashback" line is not for Christmas. But I can't get enough of it! AND the "B" side of the "Viewfinder" sheet of patterned paper is that cool gold & white chevron and I thought it could pass for kind of Christmas-y. Combine that patterned paper with some glittery paper and stickers and you've got quite a nice foundation for some pretty Christmas projects! So I thought I would try it. I pulled out some KI Memories Christmas Puffies, a sheet of kraft cardstock, and a couple of large circle punches and I was ready to make some stuff. I made a 5" x 5" card and a 4.25" x 5.5" card out of the kraft cardstock. The KI glitter cardstock and the "Viewfinder"/gold & white chevron patterned paper were used as the background papers for both cards. Then I used the punched circles, glitter stickers, and Puffies to embellish each card. I used lots of foam adhesive here to give the cards lots of dimension.

When I finished the cards I used the scraps I had left over to make a tag. I had forgotten about the red chevron washi tape that goes with the "Flashback" line. Shame on me! But it too is Christmas-y enough to use for Christmas projects! So I made sure to use it on this tag. I really stink at making tags but I thought this one turned out pretty cute!

Merry Christmas y'all and thanks for stopping by the blog today!
