Cards created from kits from my last class

I have decided to make up all the card kits I had left over from my last class to augment my stash, to be available for donation to various causes and to make up sets as little gifts which I can use over the year.  I usually prep these gifts at the last minute and I am always in a hurry.  Having them already made up will provide less stress and allow me to provide variety in my cards.
You can check our the cards I made at the class here. 
 I laser printed funky flowers, a leaf, daisies, balloons, a birthday cake, a tulip and a dress. Combined them with decorative paper, a layer of cardstock, some seam binding or ribbon and a strip that was border punched with an eyelet punch (SU). As you can see I varied the papers, the position of the seam binding and even which side the image was placed to vary the cards I made with these identical kits. One is missing the border because I found that card to be better without it.
It is nice to have a few all occasion cards in your stash because they are appropriate for several celebrations and recipients.

These were really fun to make up and makes me really appreciate the speed of cardmaking when a person works with kits rather than starting from scratch.
