It’s time for the 05-2020 APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Kit In Color, and it features some of the new 2020-2022 In Colors. It comes in a fun, colorful box and makes 12 fun, colorful cards. We are featuring alternate projects made with this kit. I made a card and decorated a Mini Pizza Box. Be sure to hop all the way around to see all the great alternate projects!

Here’s the A Kit In Color kit:
Here’s what I made:
The Misty Moonlight ink looks darker in these photos than in real life.
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:
- the front of one of the multicolor card bases cut into strips 1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (need 7 strips)
- a pink/orange/yellow layer cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
- Just Jade card stock (CS) cut to 3-1/3″ x 3-1/4″
- trimmed excess strips from around the card base (see below)*
Stamped with the A Kit In Color stamp set:
- “hey” in Misty Moonlight ink onto the white side of a ticket shaped piece
- “you’re amazing” in Misty Moonlight ink onto a precut label
Assembled the card:
- burnished the fold in a small Purple Posy card base with a Bone Folder
- 1/2″ strips glued onto the front of the card base, staggering them, then trimmed excess from edges*
- adhered one of the larger vellum layers onto the strips
- wrapped a piece of twine around the top of the sentiment piece and tied in a bow
- adhered the sentiment piece onto the vellum
- applied 3 enamel shapes onto the card front
Assembled the box:
- burnished the folds in the pizza box and folded to assemble
- pink/orange/yellow layer glued onto the Just Jade CS layer
- top of a vellum tag folded over the top of the Just Jade CS layer, so the notched end comes just to the bottom of the front, and adhered in place on the back and in the center of the front
- Just Jade CS layer glued onto the top of the box
- sentiment label adhered over vellum layer
- 3 enamel shapes applied onto the box top
