Stawberry Slush Happenings

Today is my final post using the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit.  This is a great kit because it includes everything you need to make 15 cards quickly and easily.  You only need to add sentiments (I used the Thanks and Hello Stamp Set) and adhesive.

Even though the product description on my Stampin' Up website states that these cards will finish 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" - I found the notecards included were smaller.  I added my own card bases to allow the cards to finish at the standard A2 size.

The card above can be made with the elements included in the kit and is quick and easy to make.  Then I started mixing some the background papers as well as using some of my Stampin' Up punches to create new elements.  The heart element included in the kit is the same size as Stampin' Up's Full Heart Punch.  So I took one of the Strawberry Slush Circles and cut a heart.  The banner card below was cut using the Triangle Punch from the 2014 Occasions catalog.

For this last card, I added a strip of Smoky Slate embossed with the Scallops TIEF.
Whether you keep the cards simple or add new creative elements, this is a fun card kit and one that I hope you will try.
