I’m making cards with a card kit from Spellbinders that you can subscribe to on a monthly basis. I’m not an affiliate with Spellbinders, but I love this kit. It is a great value and I’m having so much fun with it. It’s called, “Let Your Heart Soar” and it’s the February 2021 edition. Today’s card is my favorite so far. I love everything about it: the colors, the layout, the whole look really. I decided to create some layers using the patterned paper, tags and stickers from the kit. It has a very sweet, feminine sense about it. The colors also lend themselves nicely to Spring or Easter. The colors and the cute little birdies would work well for this season. You can see the unboxing of the kit on my YouTube channel: Unboxing Spellbinders February 2021 “Let Your Heart Soar” Card Kit.
Feel free to change the placement or layout of the items on the card to suit your preferences. Don’t be afraid to trim down pieces that seem to large for the card, which is what I did with the green ephemera tag. The three little hearts are puffy stickers from the kit. As I say in the video, when you decorate the front of your cards, always be sure to use items in sets of odd numbers. I used 3 hearts instead of 2 or 4 (even number) because our eyes are drawn to things that are arranged in sets of odd numbers. Another detail on this card is the gold foiling on the lettering. It adds a hint of elegance to this lovely card. Many of the pieces from this kit have bits of gold foiling on them.
