South Hill Designs & Stampin' Up! Sunday Beautiful Sponged Kite Card

Oh how cute is this?

A couple of weeks ago, the children and I went to visit my parents at their caravan for the day. There was a whole kite thing going on, the end result, after 4 year old Olive had totally shown the rest of us up, was a kit escaping into the tree. It was rescued eventually by my Dad with the help of a bicycle wrench, rope and a good throwing arm….

However, that prompted me to put a Kite Charm in my South Hill Designs locket of the moment and it hasn’t moved since!

When I was thinking up the dual project for today, I had one project in mind, then South Hills went and announced a massive joining offer worth $250/£240 so I wanted to make that my focus for this week’s video, however, I didn’t want the pretty card I’d made go to waste.

So do head to my video if you want to hear about the joining offer and learn about the new locket design, and my blog here gives full detail on how many hundreds of ££/$$s you’re getting for free in your kit!. If not, hang out here and I’ll show you some more about the card.

It’s super simple. I cut a kite shape from a single piece of Colour Me Irresistible DSP. I masked off the various sections and then sponged in the colours to match the kite charm. Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Watermelon Wonder and Wild Wasabi.

I wanted to create a tail, so that became an extension to hide the ‘join’ of the 4 colours, and with a lot of patience with the Silver Ribbon, I got a bow on there too. Eventually….

So a simple card to remind us of a fun day with a lot of laughter!
