I had the opportunity to create with the "Melodies" boxed card kit, and I was really happy about how quick and easy it was to create all of these cards.  The perfectly coordinating kit comes with 12 cards and envelopes; assorted sentiment, shape, and border stickers; and gems in a matching box.

A great thing about these card kits, aside from how easy they are to assemble, is that all of the pieces are there for you, pre-cut and ready to be mixed and matched however your creativity desires.

I decided to add some twine from my stash to each card for added detail and dimension, but the cards would be just as lovely (and more mail-friendly) without it.

Notice the fun bracket-shaped edge on the envelope flaps?  I love that fun detail.

You don't even need your own adhesive, because all of the embellishments are stickers.  You could choose to add foam squares behind the sentiment stickers, as I did, for added dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Your next stop is Linda Abadie :)
