I am really excited about this one. The Wild at Heart and Woodland Wonders kit is filled with wonderful animal imagery. These cards are perfect for nature lovers, kids, and anyone that loves animals. These make great masculine cards too! The men in my life think this is one of the best kits to date!
Wild at Heart is fun, fast and easy to complete. Because of the layering, they just don't need a lot of extra embellishments.
I used five sizes of cards in the video. If you have them all (or want them all,) that's great. They are listed below. However, it is important to note that I could easily have gotten by with just three sizes:
- Larger (5x7 cards) These can be trimmed slightly for for 5x6.5 cards and you can use the same envelopes. You could also create the 5x5" card using one of these or conver that card to a 5x7 by adding a sentiment and border.
- Smaller (Quarter Fold size cards) We are used to using A2 (4.25x5.5 ") cards here in the US. The Brittish equivalent is a European A6 (approximetely 4x6)
- Longer: To take full advantage of the Hunkydory Border art and larger images, you really need some longer cards. We use Hunkydory DL cards. They are 4x8" and they work perfectly!
Whether you are an experienced card maker of fairly new to the craft, you will enjoy this kit. Those of you that make LOTS of cards for hospitals, cancer society, soldiers, bazaars, and other purposes that need lots of cards will love this kit because it goes together so fast. I sat here one evening and did all of the layering while I watched TV. Then I assembed all 34 cards in just a few hours over two days! Using the ideas presented in the video, you can get 64 cards from One Full Size Deco Large kit and two papers and inserts packs..
Even if you think that animals cards are not for you don't miss this video. We presented some fun new ideas for using throw away pieces. I think you will agree that the results were great!
