Hello friends! Today I’m sharing 4 handmade cards that I made using the February 2019 Hip Kits. I used bits and pieces from all the kits: Main kit, Embellishment kit, Project Life kit, Color kit, & cardstock kit. I love making handmade cards, so I was especially excited to dig into these kits. There are so many goodies here that are perfect for both scrapbooking and card making.
I made all the card bases using the cardstock from the kit. I made them A2 sized, so folded, they measure 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
For my first card, I made a XOXO shaker card.
I used one of the February subscriber cut files called candy hearts, and I cut it from white cardstock. I used the Prima opal magic paints from the color kits to color the jar and hearts. I used some sequins (from a past kit), acetate, and foam tape to make my shaker. I backed it with one of the pattern papers from theMain kit. To embellish the front of the card, I used a Crate Paper shaker heart, a wood flair button and enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio.
For my next card, I made a happy card that works for any occasion.
I used the cut apart pattern paper from Carta Bella for the background floral piece, as well as the flower pot sentiment piece, which I cut into a tag. I embellished it with Pinkfresh Studio flowers and a Carta Bella brad. This card was the easiest and fasted to make, but I might love it the most because of those gorgeous painted flowers!
For my third card, I made a Valentines card.
I used a February freebie cut file called Hearts Background 2, and I cut it from white cardstock. I adhered the cut file with foam squares to one of the pattern papers in the kit. I added the Crate Paper stickers, the Valentine’s heart and the So Sweet banner, as well as the wreath and enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio.
For my last card, I made a card that would be perfect to send encouragement.
I used one of the exclusive PL cards, and I die cut a large circle. I adhered it with foam tape to add dimension. For the main focus, I used this cute truck chipboard sticker from Carta Bella. I added some florals and banners from Pinkfresh Studio, as well as some brads from Carta Bella. To finish off the card, I added some Prima opal magic paint splatters.
I love how my cards turned out, and I really hope you like my cards as well. Don’t forget to check out the awesome February kits, as well as the free cut files!
