Gifts: Style Watch: Holiday Card Making Kit

Clear and Simple Cardmaking Kit

Welcome to your new Sunday paper! After some thought and discussion, it seemed like Sunday would be a nice new home for Clear and Simple Stamps Style Watch. If you’re like me, Sunday mornings are a great time to laze around for an hour or two – catching up on tasks around the house, and of course, catching up on blogs!

I’d love to know your thoughts on the move to Sunday…does it work for you?

And, how about we make something while we’re lazing around…like a really awesome card kit!

Card kits are a great way to trick your friends…I mean…convince your friends that crafting is an awesomely cool thing to do! Here’s a how this card kit came together:

What-You-Need Holiday Card Making Kit

1) Small glassine bags filled with card kit embellishments including circles embossed with the Clear and Simple Imprint 3 Impression Plate, stamped and die cut apothecary jars, stamped and die cut favor flag ribbbons with sentiments – and last but not least, a bag of stamps!

2) A tape runner and foam adhesive (similar HERE).

3) Cardstock cut and scored into cards, along with one completed card to give as an example.

4) Colored pencils or markers

Once you’ve assembled your kit into a bag, you can finish it off with a tag that includes instructions. This is especially important if you are giving this kit to a beginner.

  2. I like the post on Sundays better. I definitely think it keeps the craft juices flowing! Plus there’s not a lot of competition for my attention since most bloggers don’t post anything new on the weekend, let alone a Sunday. TFS.

  3. Sundays are great for me. Lots of times I am waiting for DH to wake up and I’m on the computer surfing and catching up on blogs (if I have fallen behind during the week). Very nice kit btw. Love your bag.

    Right now I am waiting for DH to get up so we can go out to breakfast šŸ™‚

  4. I like Sundays. I usually have more time to browse online. And, I love this kit! Great idea for my friends who think they are non-crafty.

  5. Brilliant Sunday morning post šŸ™‚ Great idea, love al the little glassine bags. I would love to make “gifts” this year but fear lack of time will get the better of me šŸ™‚

    Love how you stag your photographs too, so very polished šŸ™‚
