For the balance of the cards I dug through my supply of card kits and found this one that would make a great versatile card. You can see the others I made here for my March card making class a while back.
I started by adhering my decorative paper strips to the back of my embossed green strip. I simply applied a strip of double sided tape and placed them neatly in place. I embossed the top portion of my navy layer and applied the decorative paper layer I had just created so that it covered the bottom edge of the embossing. I adhered this large layer to my medium blue card front and then trimmed the strips diagonally so they would end above the bottom of the navy layer. The greeting is a digital one from Desert Diva which I laser printed on white cardstock and trimmed to size. I sponged its edges in green and then mounted it to a blue layer with distressed edges. I mounted it to my card front using 3D foam tape. Using card kits to make cards is so quick and easy when all the pieces are already prepared and ready to go!!!!!!!!!! Therese
