LET’S MAKE CARDS | MELANIE BAIER-GOESSL | JANUARY 2022 HIP KITS

Hello everyone!  Today I am sharing some cards with envelopes I created with the January 2022 Hip Kits. I created one card with envelope, and the other one is an all-in-one card that has room for some extra goodies.

 

 

For the first card, I started with the HKC Essentials January 2022 Cardstock Kit to create the card bases and the envelopes. I used the HKC Exclusive stitching template included in the January 2022 Color Add-On Kit to add some stitched fireworks to my card. Next, I added the sentiment using words that I die cut with the Hip Kit Club Kaleidoscope Metal Dies  Then I combined these with a pieces of ephemera & a couple clear phrase stickers from the Embellishment Add-On Kit.  There are so many amazing products in these kits!

 

 

For the second card I created the base of my envelope first.  Then I used one of the Hip Kit Club Nested Circle Metal Dies to cut a large circle to use as the flap for my envelope.  I picked one of the chipboard stickers from the January 2022 Embellishment Add-On Kit  To give it some extra dimension, I added some foam adhesive on the back as well as a long piece of string to create the closure for my envelope.

 

 

Next, I cut a piece of vellum to fit the inside of the envelope.  I used my trusty sewing machine to create a pocket.  I chose two cards from the Pocket Life Kit to put inside the vellum pocket.  One for was for a personal message, and the “a new chapter” card was used as the sentiment.  I thought it worked perfectly for a birthday card. Eventually, I decided to create a little balloon embellishment with a tiny cornflower using the Kaleidoscope Die set once again.  I love these dies so much!  I painted a small popsicle stick with the Shimmerz Inklingz from the Color Add-On Kit so that it would coordinate well.  Next, I added a balloon die cut to both sides of the popcicle stick.  Then I layered the little flowers & a puffy sequin sticker to the balloon.  To finish it off, I looped some thread around the flower to give it a pretty detail and some extra texture.  I love how it turned out and I hope you do too!
