Simple Stories Heart Eyes Card Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club
Hello, Friends! I’m popping in today to share the first look at this adorable Simple Stories Heart Eyes Card Kit with you. It’s my Button Farm Club Quarterly Subscription kit for December 2022. Sometimes we can hit what I call the “post-holiday crafting slump”. Does that ever happen to you? Our crafty mojo drops down with the winter temperatures, and we need some fun, inspirational ideas to get us back into the creative swing of things. Well, I designed this vibrant kit with that in mind, and I think you are really going to love it. Let’s take a closer look at the fun projects in this kit, shall we?
Dimensional Loaded Envelope Tutorial
I love loaded envelopes, and I’ve been making them since I was about 6 years old. Of course, I didn’t call them that back then, but that’s what they were. Mom and Dad kept an office for our small town credit union in our home when I was growing up. The office trash can was always filled with manila envelopes (remember those?) and I used to fish them out, dress them up with cut out hearts or snowflakes or whatever the theme of the moment happened to be. Then I would fill them to the brim with little notes and drawings and my version of cards.
So when I entered the world of crafting, I fell in love with this concept all over again. Some time ago, I figured out how to make the envelopes in 3-D. You all fell in love with those projects and asked for a tutorial. But because the process was complicated and unpredictable, I never felt comfortable sharing it with you. I kept working on the paper engineering, and earlier this year, I came up with such a simple way to make these delightful box-style envelopes, that I decided to include the design in one of my card kits.
Y’all, you are going to LOVE how easy it is to make the envelope base! So that is why I made this the very first project in our December kit. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to share the design with you!
Shaker Envelope Easel Cards
No card kit is complete without a couple of cute shaker cards! And y’all never seem to grow tired of making them!
Can you see the super cute sprinkles and candy hearts in the shaker window? This view of the closed card makes it a bit easier to see, but the card actually does stand up like an easel for display. What a bright spot of color to add to your desk!
Slimline Card Folios
Slimline cards continue to be very popular, so I included a very pretty pair inside this card kit. They are so easy to make, and the folio design inside the card is fun to open!
Loaded Front Pocket and Tag Cards
OK, y’all. I do love a good pocket! And if you can tuck a super cute lollipop rosette into the front pocket of a greeting card, I’m all in!
I’ll show you how easy it is to make these festive lollipop rosettes in the card kit tutorial. They are such a great addition to a pocket card. Each of these top fold A2 cards has a fun tag and 3×4 card insert. You’ll see how cute the inside is, too, when you make the kit!
Twist and Pop!
Some of you may have already seen this cutie on my Facebook or Instagram page. Because I love pop-up cards, I try to include one in each card kit that we make. You’ll also learn how to make the really cute butterfly clothespin embellishments in this kit.
Fun Flip Folio
And because I know you love to make them, I’ve designed a brand new fun flip folio card for this sweet kit.
You will love how easy it is to create this folio base!
I predict it will become a staple in your crafty toolbox!
