When working with a kit, I always try and come up with something unexpected or different to really maximize the kit and make my projects unique. One easy way to do that is to create a shaped card.
I like to use a large circle die slightly hanging off the fold of a piece of cardstock to create a circular card. With all the little polka dots and circular candies, a circular shaped card seems to work perfectly here! I also added some dimensional white dots to the label with Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops and some shiny dimension to the polka dot paper with Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Glaze.
Another way to create an unexpected look on a card is to create a fun background. Sometimes I like to stamp my own background or use foil or glitter cardstock, but this time, I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to make a background that looked like cotton candy?
I used a thin layer of double sided adhesive to turn my card panel into a piece of adhesive cardstock. Then, I wrapped the fibers from the Candy Land kit over the adhesive. I flipped the panel over and trimmed the edges. I added a touch of liquid adhesive to the edges too to make sure they wouldn’t come off.
Want to see how easy it is to make your own cotton candy background? Check out the quick video I made that walks you through the process and the creation of this card! (Be sure to watch through the end of the video because there is a giveaway!!)
I hope you’ll give it a try for your next sweet card! Thanks for stopping by!
