Say Aloha cards

Hi everyone, it’s Pam here.

This month Chrissy asked us to use the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad and the die cut collectables  to make some cards. I love Kaisercrafts 6.5 x 6.5 paper pads, and often use the paper on my scrapbook pages when I don’t need a large piece of patterned paper. But this size of paper really comes into it’s own for card making. The patterns are scaled down and this makes them perfect for making cards. The papers I am using are from the Say Aloha collection from Kaisercrafts.

My first card is a very feminine birthday card, which is going to go to my mother in law. I chose only the pink papers from the pack, and pink flower and butterfly embellishment from the die cut collectables. I added an adhesive pearl to the centre of the butterfly. 2015-05-18 14.23.20

The crinkle ribbon was dyed using Kaisermists pink spray ink. I just put the ribbon into a plastic pot and spritzed it a few times with the spray until it was all coloured to my liking.2015-05-18 13.41.44My next card is a bit more funky, and I think this would be a great card for teenager. I used the black and white leopard print (a scaled down version of the Flamingo paper) mounted onto black card for the background. I then added a strip of the yellow and black leopard print (a scaled down version of the Island paper) down the left hand side. The sentiment circles are punched from one of the pages in the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pads. And finally the leaf and the heart are from the die cut collectables.
