Authentique Endless Summer Card Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends! Spend some time during the lazy, hazy days of summer creating vibrant all occasion greeting cards with the Button Farm Club Authentique Endless Summer Card Kit.  If you’re like me, you never seem to have enough cards on hand.

The Authentique Endless Summer Card Kit from The Button Farm Club will help you to create an amazing variety of beautiful handmade cards quickly and easily. Just follow the full color step by step tutorial that comes with the kit.

Vibrant summer patterns and images from Authentique Paper’s Endless Collection will be used to make 10 projects from this one kit:  an interactive 5” x 7” card folio with pockets, flip page and waterfall feature; a fanciful mason jar shaker card, 6” x 6” easel card that is suitable for home decor, a delightful fun fold card with a pocket, (3) 4” x 6” easy to mail cards, (2) dimensional gift tags, and a clever gift card wallet.

Project #1: Lazy Days Card Folio

Project #2: Mason Jar Shaker Card

Projects #5, #6 and #7: Easy to mail cards

Remember when we all got dressed in our Easter best for Easter Sunday?
