Notes of Kindness Card Kit

So things are pretty strange right now.  New Zealand is in lockdown with the Coronavirus and everyone (who is not an essential worker) is at home.  

Yesterday was supposed to be my monthly card class but of course that couldn't happen.  I decided to do a video instead on the project we were going to be completing.  

This is the Notes of Kindness Card Kit and in the video I show you what's in the kit, how to make the four beautiful cards that are in the kit - there are 5 each of 4 designs so you actually make 20 in total - and at the end I show you some alternative cards I made using the stamp set from the kit. 

On page 63 of the 2020 Mini Catalogue is a page called "Maximise Your Kit Sets".  It gives you great ideas on how you can use the stamp set that comes in the kit, to make other projects after you've made all the cards from the kit.  That's where I got the inspiration for this full sized masculine card from:

I've used the Golden Honey Speciality Designer Series Paper which was free with Sale-a-bration, however it has now sold out.  You can use any Designer Series Paper that you have, or you can do as the sample did and use cardstock and emboss it with an embossing folder.  

I have switched mine around and embossed the top part using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and used the Designer Series Paper on the bottom. 
For these two notecards I used the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  With the vanilla card I matted an orange card from the pack onto Basic Black cardstock before adhering it to the card.  Then I stamped the Thank You stamp in Versamark ink on a scrap of black card and heat embossed it with Gold Emboss Powder then adhered it where I liked it.

The white notecard is a card from the pack directly adhered to the notecard without any matting.  This time the Thank You is stamping in Terracotta Tile ink.
