Chris’ ‘Dash of Sunshine’ Card Kit ideas

Nothing brightens someone’s day like a a handmade card! And nothing makes a card brighter than a dash of sunny yellow! It is amazing how a dash of yellow brightens up any card! I can sometimes get overwhelmed looking at my supplies, trying to choose what paper coordinates with another paper. Using a card kit makes sending sunny greetings so quick and easy! So I have pulled together few of my favorite papers and I am excited to share with you this ‘Dash of Sunshine’ Card Kit I have created!

I build my ‘Dash of Sunshine’ kit using:
Canvas Corp Paper – Spring Sayings on Ivory
Canvas Corp Paper – Black and Ivory Zig Zag
Canvas Corp Paper – Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse
Canvas Corp Paper – Black and Ivory French Script
Canvas Corp Yellow Hemp Rope
Canvas Corp – Mini Natural Clothespins
Canvas Corp – Ivory Greeting Cards
Canvas Corp – Ivory Note Cards

Other supplies you will need include adhesives, pen, Scallop circle punch and coloring tools.

Here are examples of some cards that I created with my kit.
