A Card Kit Freebie & a Fab Birthday card in under 15 minutes!

Today's post is extra fun! My friend Lindsay over at The Frugal Crafter is offering a free card kit! All you have to do is download, print and cut! Then you've got a quick and easy kit to make up to 3 cards from! Lindsay's Card Kit Freebie

Lindsay is also offering a deal in her store! Try a card kit and a digital stamp for free, you can download them from Lindsay's blog. You can also still get a free stamp for every $5 you spend in her store! Most of her stamps are just $1.00 each! So that's quite a bargain!

Ok, now for the card. This card was created using everything from Lindsay's Birthday Card kit. And I mean everything! The kit is designed to make up to 3 cards, however, me being the type of person who thinks the opposite of "less is more" decided that "more is more". haha. I wanted to use it all on ONE card! I love how it turned out!

All I had to do was print it out on my computer. It took about 15 minutes to cut everything out. I then put it all together on the card in under 15 minutes! I added some bling by using some a thrift store button and some rainbow colored seed beads for added interest. I used pop dots to pop the scallopped border on the inside and ouside of the card.

These also look great with a digital stamp added to them. Be sure to check out Lindsay's blog for more ways to use these card kits!

In order to make a card like this one, all you need is:
-One piece of cardstock 5.5"x8.5" (for card base)
-Card Kit Freebie
-Any extra bling you'd like to add
