Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a couple of super cute takeout boxes I decorated with the papers and stamp set from the Super Host (Collection 1) from the new April Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
I made these for my niece and nephew to celebrate May Day. I filled them with candy.
With my left over scraps I made some matching gift tags.

I hope my project gave you inspiration of other things you can make with this fabulous kit.
This time I wanted to piece the die back together using different papers… just like a puzzle! I don’t know about you, but I love puzzles and piecing these die pieces back together was so much fun! And I have all kinds of pieces leftover to make more cards with!! I started by die cutting Chocolate card stock for my die base. I adhered that to a piece of copy paper and then fussy cut it out.
Then I die cut the Flowery Camera from three different papers in the Country Roads paper pack and adhered all of those pieces to my Chocolate camera. Isn’t it just so pretty?! I love how it turned out! Now if you didn’t snatch up one of these fabulous card kits while you had the chance, be sure to check out the A La Carte section of the website… you can still purchase the gorgeous papers and some of the other products in the kit!!
Did you see the little extra glittery goodness I added to my card? These gorgeous glittery papers by DCWV are available in the A La Carte section of the shop AND they make such a great addition to the card kit!! I really loved the Mojo Monday sketch that the design team used for our hop and reveal so I decided to use it again for this card. You can check out the sketches that the DT used here —> April 2020 Sketch Sheet. I trimmed all of my paper layers and adhered them to a Chocolate card stock card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I wrapped a piece of Natural Twine from the Country Roads Collection around those paper layers and tied off a knot. I then adhered the panel to a white card base from my stash. I popped up the stitched arch that I die cut from the text papers and then adhered the die cut Flowery Camera directly to it.
I think it turned out lovely!! I decided not to add a sentiment at this point because I’m just not sure what occasion I’m going to use it for. Do you ever do that with your cards?
I hope I’ve inspired you to pull out your City Streets and Country Roads card kit and get some inky time in… or maybe some paper piecing time since I didn’t actually get inky with this card! Lol!
Thanks for visiting us today here at SFL. If you aren’t already signed up to get your own Flavor of the Month Card Kit you can take care of that right here. Also take a look at the A La Carte category for great add ons to go with your kit.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a Concertina Popup Card! The card closed will fit in a 5 1/2 inch square envelope, it’s pretty thick so you can get away with using a 6-inch square envelope.
I really wanted to use what was in the kit and all of the Concertina cards I saw like this were 6 inches square so I figured out all of the measurements so you can use an 8 1/2 X 11-inch piece of cardstock.
I am a country/small town girl at heart but oh those city streets and the hustle and bustle of a city is very exciting!

I seriously LOVE each of the collections this month… Gorgeous!! But the Banana Split subscriptionthis month has that extra bit of crafty goodness that just tops the cake!! How absolutely stunning is that camera with the dainty flowers and leaves…?!? I just HAD to use it for my sneak peek! I die cut it from the Neenah 110 lb. Classic Crest Smooth Solar White card stock included in the kit and colored it using copic markers that coordinated with the gorgeous papers included in the Country Roads collection:
Flowers ~ R0000, R14, R56
Leaves ~ Y11, Y13, Y15, E41, YG91, YG93
Camera ~ N0, N2, N4, N6
I colored most of the pieces while keeping the die cuts intact, but some of the camera pieces were so small I took them out and colored them. I then adhered the entire die cut piece to a piece of white copy paper and fussy cut it around the edges.
I trimmed the beautiful patterned papers and adhered them together. I then wrapped a pretty yellow ribbon from another collection around the layers and adhered the panel to a white card base from my stash. I then die cut a piece of white card stock with the Stitched Arch STAX die… adding this piece helped the gorgeous camera to pop on the card. I stamped the empowering sentiment from Your Best Life stamp set in Collection Two with VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink and die cut it with a banner die. I added a tiny piece of patterned paper to the edge of that sentiment and then popped it up on the card. To finish off the card, I added a few of the black sequins included in the Banana Split subscription. So… I used three of the collections and a couple of elements from the Banana Split to make this beautiful card!! I am telling you this kit is A MUST HAVE!!!
