Guest Designing for The Card Kitchen-Day Four

Hey friends!! Thanks so much for joining me all week as I share the cards I created guest designing with the The Card Kitchen's December kit. If you missed any of my posts from this week, just click below for inspiration.
Now, onto today's final cards from this fantabulous kit that comes with enough patterned paper, pre-folded cards, envelopes, embellishments, trims and stamps to make eight cards!!
I love that you get two each of four cardstock bases. This kit came with cream, green, yellow and this great kraft cardstock. I knew I wanted to use some bright patterns and some gingham ribbon, and I think they look striking on the neutral kraft background. 
I "strung" the tags on a star stick pin and then stapled it to the card. To complete the look, I added some left over sparkle gems and the sentiment miss you.  A cute little decorative edge border at the bottom of the card was made by simply punching the bottom edge, and placing a strip of patterned paper at the bottom.
My final cards takes advantage of all the fun and happy colors in this kit.  The yellows warm up the turquouise, green and navy blue stickers and die cuts in this card.
I added a simple XO scalloped die cut to the center with some hearts and even a little bit of string to soften up the layered elements. 

Thank you so much for joining me while I shared my creations. I had such a blast designing with the kit. There are so many creative goodies in this month's kit, and the The Card Kitchen Kit club provides amazing inspiration. Thanks to Kimber McGray for having me this month!!
