A One Print Card Kit & Blog Candy

I'm going to try to keep this post from getting incredibly long. There are 2 things I have to share today the first is a small gift from me to you for paying my blog a visit during the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop and it's something I'm calling a 'One Print Card Kit'. Essentially it's a one page PDF that contains various elements that you can combine into a card design. Here are a few of the cards I made with it.






The sentiment in this is from the Stampers Best - OWH Fundraiser stamp set
called My Hero Sentiments




Most of the elements in all of these are part of the kit though I did use some twine, a couple of toothpicks, ribbon and a few solid papers too.

A few quick tips...

• I printed my sheets on card stock which I think makes it easier to cut.
• I 'thickened' my buttons by gluing together a few layers of card stock.
• The buttons are sized so you can use a 1" and 1.25" punch on them.
• Make sure your printer is set to print the PDF at 100% on  8 1/2 x 11 Paper
• Every printer is different so experiment with different papers and settings.

You can download the file HERE. The file will open in a new window and you can download it by clicking the arrow at the top left corner of the screen. I hope you enjoy using it in your crafting projects and simply ask that you post a link back here if you'd like to share it but please do not sell it, repost it or claim it as your own. You may reproduce this at a local copy shop in large quantities for use at card parties and personal use but not for resale, please. 
 I would LOVE to see what YOU make with it!

Now on to the BLOG CANDY! I am giving away to one randomly drawn winner the  crafting goodies pictured below along with some other surprises AND 2 stamp sets of your choice from my TAG SALE page. Simply include your email address in a comment on THIS post and I will know you want to be included.






Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
