Collage Card Kit from Etsy

I thought it would be a good idea to show you the sort of card you can make from one of my Collage Card Kits available on.etsy.com/shop/pootlingwithpaper  They are such fun to make and all you need to add is some double sided tape and a glue stick.  It would be useful to have a paper cutter or just use scissors if you prefer.  The only additional thing I used was a stapler to staple the ribbon to the stamped message.  A card and envelope is included to get you started!

The kits include parts of original book pages from reclaimed children's and sometimes adults books.  Decorative papers and embellishments complete the look.


I signed and dated the back of the card and added a torn strip of a book page in the bottom corner for added interest.
 I tore a small piece of a page to add decoration to the front of the envelope.

I had all this left over!  These other elements can be used to make more cards or used in other craft projects.
