I had a couple of cards I needed to make for some upcoming birthdays so I got out my stash and got together the bits I was wanting to make the cards with when some things caught my eye, first an ultimate card pack of Tilly Daydream by Docrafts Papermania which I completely forget I had bought, and second some dies for my die cut machine I haven’t yet had a chance to use. I decided since I was already doing a few cards already a couple more would do no harm.
I opted to start first on the Tilly Daydream ultimate card pack, so will stick on that in this post, I will focus on my use of the dies in another one so the details of the accessories used don’t get mixed up.
The card pack contained a very good amount of card making accessories including:
- 32 patterned cards in 8 different designs and envelopes.
- Cream ribbon.
- 20 decoupage sheets with 5 different designs.
- 56 adhesive pearl gems of varying sizes.
Apart from using some Docrafts Papermania Bakers twine in spots and stripes pastels on a few of the cards I only used what was contained within the kit to make all of these cards.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this as usually I end up having to dig into my stash to find a lot more extra bits for embellishments when I get a card pack. I also still have plenty of papers and decoupage card toppers to make a lot more cards. Often I find in card packs there just isn’t enough contained within them to make the number of cards they indicate – clearly not the case for this.
As you can tell I am very happy with this card pack, I love the Tilly Daydream range, and I am pleased with the cards I have made from it, I think the recipients will be happy too, how can they not be – they are just so cute!
