CupCards {to go} Summer Kit: Boutique

I had so much fun making cards using CupCards {to go} first ever SUMMER KIT! Like WAY TOO MUCH FUN. There was Girls Paperie, Melissa Frances, Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey... tags, ribbons, rub-ons, roly rosies. Oh my! It was like a box of inspiration. I had six cards made before I even paused to think about what to make. Which for me is unusual. Sonda is just that good :-)

Kites add a playful element to cards and they are such a summery image. To make them freehand cut the basic kite shape and then trace the first one to make three more. Don't worry about the lines being perfectly straight or symmetrical because kites bend and twist in flight. It makes them look real.

Cut two of your kites in quarters and glue two pieces on top of the base kite in alternate colors. Put your kite on a scrap piece of paper and outline your kite with a black pen (like Micron). Attach baker's twine to the back with tape and secure to your card using dimensional foam dots so the kites really look like they're flying.

Kits purchased today (July 1st) will receive a FREE floral goodie bag in their kit box, while supplies last. (includes doilie)  These are very limited and will go fast. So don't wait...get your kit now before they are gone! Kits will begin shipping on Tuesday, July 5th.
