So much going on in my life! However, I need to complete at least 3 cards a week to justify my Treasure Box Shuffled Cards membership, so I knocked out the last 3 of the set this week. The background paper is from Fancy Pants designs, and has a nice woven texture to it. I love that I got paper from three different companies in this one kit.
So, what did I need that didn't come in the kit? An ultrafine marker for the pen work, a white pen, adhesives including pop dots and vellum tape, a crop-o-dile (or other eyelet setting gear), a crimper (but any type of dry embossing would work just as well), and inks for edging. I tried both distress inks applied with a sponge, and markers, and both would work equally well. If you are already a card-maker or a scrapbooker, you probably have everything you would need, and if you aren't, the tools you would need to buy are the most common and popular tools that are out there - it would be a good investment if you wanted to make a habit of it.
