Hey everyone, if you are not a kit fan like I was not then you NEED to check out the kit, Precious Parcel. OH MY!!!! I so fell in love with this kit. It is so gorgeous! Talk about being super easy too!!! No inking so no inky fingers. I did use ink on my 1st card alternative but my 2nd card I did not.
Don’t skip over my 2nd card alternative. I use a piece from the kit that I think most people will toss in the trash. Did you toss it or did you use it?
I have three alternatives, two cards and one 3D project. Make sure to check out the last three images as that is my 3D alternative and a bit about Amanda at Scrimpingmommy. I also have the 3D measurements listed below with an image.
This is my 1st card alternative 🙂
This is my 2nd card alternative 🙂
The decorative part on the inside of this card is from the opening from the front where the paper you write your note on goes. You can have a secret note there and a note on the inside as well 🙂
I love these envelopes 🙂
This is my 3D alternative 🙂
Amanda at Scrimpingmommy created this 3D project and it turned out so cute that I wanted to make one. She has the measurements for A4 or if you have 12 x 12 cardstock you can use her measurements. I worked the measurements for our 8.5 x 11 cardstock because I didn’t have any 12 x 12 in the color I wanted.
See my measurements and image below.
Cut a 6 x 11 color of your choice cardstock.
Score on the 11 inch side at:
- 3 1/2
- 5 3/4
- 8 3/4
Turn on the 6 inch side (where it says 8 3/4 on the image, you want that side at the top of the scoreboard) and score at 3 3/4.
After you get everything cut you put it together the same way Amanda has done in her video.
Make sure to head over to Marcee’s blog to check out her other alternative project! It’s super cute!
Thank you for stopping by!
