Let’s go fly a kite…or two

Good evening!

I am on Easter holidays for 3 weeks…so I hope to have some more time to create and post…but with 2 little kids it can be difficult. I did manage to have a crafty day yesterday and made a few cards. This is one of them… a bright and happy birthday card using Practicing Creativity’s “You’re Dandy” set. It will be great to put into my birthday card stash.

The background started out as a white textured piece of card. I rubbed Broken China distress ink all over it then used the Hero Arts Envelope pattern and stamped that in Broken China over the top. I paper pieced the 2 kites then covered them in Glossy Accents as can be seen below.

Overall a really simple card to make.


Stamps: Practicing Creativity – You’re Dandy, Hero Arts Envelope pattern (S5507)
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Broken China, Tumbled Glass
Card: Regal Craft Card (textured white single fold), white card
Other Supplies: Pink and purple patterned paper (no idea of brand – just some scraps I had), foam dimensionals, Glossy Accents, Cotton cooking twine, thin white ribbon, Kaisercraft pearls – snow

Thanks for looking.



  1. Adore the kites..and the blue background is fabulous!!

  2. Wow, that inked background is fabulous! Just gorgeous. I love the way you’ve framed the kites within the white panel and added the glossy accents. Really great card!

  3. Here I go again… jealous of that envelope background. Love how you use the tone on tone, it’s just fab! Not to mention those nice shiny kites, it’s a wonderful card!
