Beautiful Kindness

Every now and then a line of papers comes along that is just so pretty, it doesn't even need stamps to showcase it. Well, K&Co has done just that. The Addison collection is simply luscious! I found a few of the coordinates recently and they have been at the top of my "pile" ever since. When the challenge at OCC came out Saturday, asking us for cards that use a sentiment as the focal point, I knew which papers to pull out. My card also works for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC17) that asks for sponging on cards this week. Let me show you my card so I can tell you more about it...

The 2nd photo is of the inside of the card. I had very little of my paper left so I was limited with what I could use to embellish the inside of the card. I may go back and add to it if I can get more of the papers. I chose a quote that I really love and printed it on my computer since setting up that many letters individually would be impossible. That is 3 days in a row that I have had no stamping on my cards! I did sponge the edges of my focal point panel though.

I used my trusty Coluzzle to cut the ovals after I printed the quote which allows perfect centering every time. The flourishes are cut using the Quick Cutz Revolution die. I only had one of those gorgeous buttons so for my extra cards, I used similar brass buttons but I really love this one in the picture. For the rest of the details, please check my supply list below. Since I have been asked to show photos of the custom album job I just finished, check back tomorrow to see that and hear about my challenges. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh wow Kyla! This card is just beautiful! That DP is heavenly and I love, love, love the flourishes and flower! Can't wait to see the custom album:)))

  2. Very elegant! The die cut swirls give it just the right touch.
