K-Cards: My New Obsession

So after learning how easy it was to make k-cards using my Ultimate Crafter's Companion, I'm now *addicted* to them. It's amazing how easy they are and how impressed the recipient is...it appears so hard to make, but it's *super* simple.

I made this one for a neighbor's birthday. This is my favorite male neighbor who has the *cutest* great danes. We often take nightly walks together (because seriously, no matter how strong you are, it's tough to handle two huge pony-sized dogs solo) and I let his dogs out on the weekends when they work late. We share desserts, dinners, *everything*. He's just a great person, and I felt I had to make a super-special card this year.

I dug into last month's Scraptastic Summer Star kit (I have the September kit but haven't been able to play *at all* with it...waiting on photo paper which I hope to pick up today) which is full of MME Lime Twist Fly a Kite goodness. I adore the patterns on these papers! After making the base of the card using two sheets of cardstock contained in the kit and cutting in the appropriate place with my handy dandy craft knife, all that was left was embellishing the hell out of that star and adding some alpha stickers (*love* these white foam Thickers so much!) The chipboard, twine, and punched stars were all contained in the kit. Love the Scraptastic Club, they just include so many goodies!
So there she is...my recent creation. I'm headed to a friend's house later this afternoon to play with some paper, a much needed little escape, but first I have to finish up my "real" work. Can't buy next month's kit without money! I wonder...will I get stuff done, or will we talk and drink too much mead together? Probably the latter, but I'm okay with that. Hope you all have a great day!

Uggh. This was the first project I tried when I got my tool. And it didn't work! The stars didn't line up or something. And I haven't tried it again since. But you've inspired to give it another go!

BTW- what is mead??
