Kiwi Lane Recommendations For Card Makers
Which Designer Templates are right for me?
So, we know that it can be difficult to decide which Designer Templates to Purchase. There are a lot of them to choose from! Whether you are just getting started with the Play-to-Create system, or are adding to your collection, we’ve found that a little bit of advice can be extremely useful! In this post, we want to give you some information and some recommendations that we think will help.
First, all of our Designer Templates for Card Making fall into a few categories. Each category gives you new options for adding layers to your hand-made cards. Let’s take a quick look at each category.
Our Card Border sets are the foundation of a great card! They are the thing that makes a Kiwi-Style card recognizable. We use them to create a unique and exciting background on which we can place additional layers and embellishments.
Our Tiny Accessories are designed to act as embellishments for your card. We have created a variety of designs for all occasions! And the best thing about them is that they will be cut right from your paper scraps! Not only is this an inexpensive way to dress up your creation, but it adds layers of color and texture that are sure to coordinate perfectly every time!
The Fun Card Borders
Our Fun Card Border are like the A/B Card Borders but give you more designs to dress up the frame of your card. Add these on top of, or between your traditional Card Borders for that little something extra. Or use them alone to create a simpler background for your embellishments.
What we recommend for Card Makers!
Each of these categories contains a variety of different sets, but to get started we recommend that you pick up a few sets from different categories.
Which sets you choose is up to you, but no matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong!
All of our Designer Templates are created to work hand-in-hand with each other, and as soon as you change the paper that you are working with you will change the feel of your card completely! So just a few sets goes a long way! Adding to your collection later on will simply provide you with new design combinations that will inspire you creatively.
We know that a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s take a look at what we mean, and what it will cost!
1 Card Border & 1 Tiny Accessory
One Card Border and one Tiny Accessory will allow you to create a variety of simple, beautiful cards! You might choose a set that gives you a creative place to add a sentiment to your card, like Tiny Brackets, or Tiny Tags.
1 Card Border & 2 Tiny Accessory
Why not get them both? A second Tiny Accessory will allow you to add layers and try new combinations! You might choose a set that will fit your current or upcoming card project…holidays? Birthdays? You’ll find sets for all occasions!
2 Card Border & 2 Tiny Accessory
You may want to add a Fun Card Border instead of a second accessory. You can use it to dress up your Card Borders, or create a simple card by using the Fun Card Border alone with your Tiny Accessories!
You can’t go wrong with this combination of card templates! It will provide you with an inspiring variety of options when designing your cards!
We absolutely love cards!
We love cards, because they are created specifically to brighten and bless the lives of others. Because of this, they also bring a special kind of joy to those of us that create them.
Whether you are a seasoned card-maker or are just getting started, we believe that the Play-to-Create system will contribute to that joy! We hope these recommendations will help you as you add Designer Templates to your card-making toolbox.
