I have really been focusing lately on making cards that I can ACTUALLY use in real life. I found that, although I did make lots of cute cards - I am ALWAYS hurting for the cards I use the most: Birthday and Thank You!  So, I set out to add another few cards to that category of my stash!

I love the fact that many MKC files have lots of layers - BUT - sometimes that DOES take a little extra time and effort to put together.  I love to work on those type of projects, but not everyone does and even I don't always have the time.  So, I chose a few of the files on the MKC web store that don't require all the layering, but still pack some great visual punch!

I sized them to about 4x4 and cut them with some creamy, shimmer cardstock.  Then, I created little cards in deeper shades of each color and mounted the little cuts on each card.  I then stamped sentiments, trimmed them into banners and matted them with the lighter-colored cardstock.

Here are the files I worked with:

  1. Oh wow, I didn't know the store had those overlays! I love them!!! Those cards would be perfect for any occasion; just a switch in the sentiment and it's done!

  2. I LOVE this idea. I need cards like this all the time too. So cute. What a great idea!!
