I adore the November Scarlet Lime kits and I keep finding projects to make with them! I made an easy set of cards from the November Main kit "Sugar Plum" and I'm going to show you how to make them, too.
First choose any four coordinating papers from the kit.
Then cut one 12 x 3 3/4 inch strip from two of the papers and one 12x 1 1/2 inch strip from the other two papers.
From the the 3 3/4 inch strips cut
three pieces 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches
three pieces 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 inches
From the 1 1/2 inch strips cut
three 1 1/2 x 2 3/4 inch pieces
three 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inch pieces
(Each 12 inch strip should yield six smaller pieces and a teeny scrap left over)
You will need three pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock for the card backgrounds. You can choose any color or a variety of colors. The background will frame and the patterned paper pieces like a window so the color and shade of the background will change the look of the cards which can be fun.
Trim the cardstock in half so you will have six pieces that measure 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. Fold the cardstock to make card backgrounds.
Ink or distress or stamp the pieces of patterned paper if you want and start arranging the pieces onto the cards. You can arrange the papers any way you want to on your cards. I used one of each pattern but you could use two or three of the same pattern if you want. I found it was best to arrange all of the cards before I started glueing them down so I knew I wouldn't end up with all one pattern on the last card and to make sure I liked the arrangements.
Remember that most of the papers are double-sided so you can use both sides of the papers to give you more variety and color.
When you have arranged all six cards the way you like them, glue all the pieces in place.
The last step is to use all those wonderful embellishments in the kit to make your cards pretty and unique. I added some ribbon and flowers from my personal stash but all the other embellishments are from the November main kit.
Did anyone else buy yards and yards of yarn fibers when it was all the rage in scrapbooking years ago? heh- heh - I couldn't resist pulling some out and adding it to one my cards. I can't help it - I still like the whimsy of fluffy fibers - within reason, of course!
So there you are - a set of six coordinated and easy cards to share your sentiments or to package together and give as a set.
And just so you know - you can use more papers or cut more strips from each paper and increase the number of cards you can make!
