Hi, its Kathy back again
Here's a quick card that is simple to put together, You don't need loads of tools, just your guillotine or craft knife, a pair of scissors, a pen and maybe an ink pad to edge the papers with.
And your Quirky Kit, of course
Just cut two squares of paper, one a couple of centimetres bigger than the other and adhere to a square card blank. This is a brilliant starting point for a card design as it immediately draws the eye into the centre you could easily just add a flower, or a verse or an image and have a presentable card in minutes.
To decorate mine, I cut a couple of narrow rectangles, then cut in at one end just with scissors. I scribbled around these with a gel pen and glued down, overlapping the two pieces of paper and tucking a "FUN" metal clip over the upper piece
Next I chose one of the tickets from the kit to put over the top - I just used glue at the end of the ticket because I rather liked the way it curled and I didn't want to flatten it.
I made faux brads by punching circles with my smallest punch and then shaped with a large embossing ball tool - you could use the end of a pen or something similar if you don't have one )I used to use a wooden dolly peg) anything with a rounded end will do the job
The bunting is simply hand-cut, glued down in an arc, and then a piece of Bakers Twine glued over the top.
At this point I thought I'd finished.....but realised it could do with something extra - so I added a third, narrower banner piece and tucked it under the loose end of the ticket.
