it's cosmolicious!

just sharing the makings of a Cosmo-licious card----Cosmo Cricket & SRM, that is!

a few weeks back, Cosmo Cricket sent each member of the SRM team a package of their products for us to work our magic on. (actually we have more surprises in the works, stay tuned for that.)

i thought i'd share the products i pulled together to design this particular card.

first i started with a pre-folded textured card, in French Vanilla, size A7, from this boxed set by Bazzill Basics.

then pulled out the Garden Variety Crafting Kit that Cosmo Cricket sent to me, along with the coordinating buttons. Garden Variety was just released at CHA and i've seen it trickling into the local and online stores. if you can't find it locally, you can shop at Cosmo Cricket's online store.

aren't those colors the definition of PERFECTION & how much do ya'll love the trend of these crafting kits? personally, i looooooooove them--all the coordinating is done for me, so i don't have to waste time trying to find products that work perfectly together. perfect for someone leading a busy life, who's also short of crafting time. (that's definitely me lately!)

so, i'm guessing that some of you are seeing that crafting kit image full of pictures showing many papers with veggies on them and wondering how i pulled off this card with that kit?

if you're familiar with Cosmo Cricket, you know that their papers are all double sided. so, let me show you exactly which papers i pulled from.

just those 3. obviously, the main flower accents are from the first paper & the crumpled leaves. i'm totally smitten with that green pattern on this one. the second paper, i just used a small 1" x 5" strip of the striped pattern side. and the third paper, i took my 3/4" circle punch to it and created the yellow circle embellishments to accent the flowers.

then, i added in that light blue/red border journaling tag (below the PIG) from this sheet (also included in the crafting kit):

layered it together with the Say It With Stickers - Mother's Day sticker sheet from SRM.

added in some green cardstock & my Scalloped Sentiments border punch from Fiskars that looks like this:

and then finished it off with some buttons in the centers of the flowers, a stacked button embellishment and.........my favorite finishing touch.........
Stickles glitter glue by Ranger. more specifically, Icecicle Stickles glitter glue. i just dabbed on some sparkle randomly in the middle of some of the flowers for the shimmer and let it dry.

and voila! you have a Mother's Day card that looks incredibly complicated, but took just a few minutes from start to finish, thanks to Cosmo Cricket Crafting Kits.

dear Cosmo Cricket:

thank you for making my life easy! i love your crafting kits & want them ALL! every single one of them! i'm a huge fan!
