Hi Stamping Friends!
I love the Stampin' Up! All-Inclusive Kits, like the popular Simply Citrus Card Kit!  It's perfect for new stampers who are just starting to create projects! If you're an avid stamper, kits may not typically be your speed, but I encourage you to check out this week's LIVE Class! I showed how, with just a few additional card bases, die-cuts and accents, you can DOUBLE the amount of cards from the kit, and step them up with a little extra layering and textures!  Stampers of all levels will love this one!
Today, I'm sharing a pair of cards from my Simply Citrus Double The Card Kit Class, so you can see just how easy it is to stretch the kit and maximize it's value!  If you want a Tutorial PDF or the Add-On Card Kit to double your kit from 15 to 30 cards…I have all the details below!

Simply Citrus Navy Lemons & Leaves Card Pair
For the first altered Double The Card Kit pair, I selected the card base with the pre-printed lemons & leaves. I trimmed off 2" from the card front and will be using that piece on a second card.

Navy Lemons & Leaves Card #1—After trimming away 2" of the card front, I stamped the Simply Citrus leaves image in Night of Navy ink onto a 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered it to the card front, positioning the edge of the cardstock flush with the edge of the card base, to create a lovely new card front.

Decorating Card #1—I used the die-cut pieces from the kit that were intended for this card. I adhered the Garden Green banner die-cut, then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy on the Whisper White label and popped it up with Dimensionals. I finished by adding a Calypso Coral Baker's Twine bow and a few flowers around the sentiment.

Lemons & Leaves Card #2—For the second card, I trimmed about 1/8" off the end of the extra lemons & leaves card base piece to use on my gate-fold card.  This card starts with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Just Jade card base, scored at the 2-1/8" and 6-3/8" marks. I adhered the lemons & leaves strip on one side, then embossed a 2" x 5-3/8" piece of Just Jade with the new Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder and adhered it to the other side.

Focal Point—I stamped the Simply Citrus sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly die-cut. Next, I stamped the lemons and leaves images onto the piece, too. I colored the lemons with Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Markers, and colored in the leaves with Dark Mint Macaron Blends. It's layered onto a 3-1/8" x 4-1/4" piece of Night of Navy cardstock, then popped up onto the left gate-fold with Dimensionals. I finished with another double bow in Calypso Coral Baker's Twine, attached with a Glue Dot. Optional: Add some Wink of Stella Glimmer for a little extra sparkle!
