June 2012 Hip Kit… A great card by Kimberly Hutchison…

Hi Everyone…

It is Kimberly here with you today, and I have a great card to share with you today that I created with our June Hip Kit.  I made this card for my husband for Father’s Day and I love the way it turned out.

2012-06-18 11.09.16Everything with the exception of the chipboard button on the top of the tag is included in our main kit for June.  There are so many fun products to choose from and there are so many color combinations.  The kraft cardstock gave my card a neutral background and enabled me to add bold patterns and colors without overpowering it. 

The inspiration for my card was the “You Make the World Go Round” border from the “This & That” border paper.  I also knew that I wanted to used one of the globes from the Studio Calico Destination paper.  (I punched it out with a circle punch). 

With all of the blue and green, I needed some contrast and a way to make my sentiment stand out. The red tag from the Crate Paper Tag Cuts paper and the polaroid from the Studio Calico Numerical paper worked perfectly.  I cut the center of the polaroid which created a frame so that some of the color and details below would show through.  I used the Amy Tangerine Thickers and the mini alphabet from Jillibean-Soup to create my sentiment along with the portion of the border  that I needed.  I outlined the alphabet to make them stand out a bit more and I added pop dots behind the border to give some extra interest and dimension.  I finished it off by adding some machine stitching  and a couple of buttons.

I think that my card design could easily be used on a layout as a cluster of embellishments.  I hope by showing you some fun ways to use the products included in your June Hip Kit  that you are inspired to create something wonderful of your own.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure to visit again tomorrow to see the next great project created with our June kit!

xo- Kimberly 😀
