ARToptions Rouge Cards by Nancy Wethington

Hi Everyone.
It’s Nancy with you today to showcase 49 & Market’s latest card kit, ArtOptions Rouge. There are so many possibilities with this kit and so very easy to put together. Need a beautifully designed card in minutes? Then this is the kit for you!

The kit includes 8 beautifully designed base cards and envelopes, a sticker sheet to seal the envelopes, and two sheets of Transfer Rub-Ons to decorate the cards including gorgeous flowers and sentiments. Whew! There are so many possibilities! Here’s how I decorated my cards.

I chose a Rub-On Transfer that had the same type of flowers and tones as the base card and placed it in the opposite corner of the base. Then added a Transfer to the lower right corner as well as a butterfly.

For the inside of the card, I added a small sentiment and a green butterfly. Deciding to fold this envelope in a vertical format, I left the inside of the card blank and added Transfers only to the bottom right of the card front. “Keeping you in my heart” and a simple leaf can be used for many occasions. I’ll be able to add a sentiment later and a personal note.

Card #3:

This card can be used for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, graduations, bridal shower or any celebration you choose! Keeping it simple, I added a Transfer sentiment to the outside of the card and a red Transfer xoxo with a beautiful leaf on the inside. Once I finish my cards, I place the card inside the envelope along with the round envelope seal and they’re ready to go whenever I need them.

Card #4:

Adding a “you are loved” and butterfly Transfer will cover a myriad of moments. The inside of the card is left with a simple sentiment and a place for a note.

Card #5:

Adding just a simple transfer adds so much. This card used a sentiment in the lower right corner along with a butterfly and a rose in the upper right corner. And in a couple of minutes, a finished card! I left the inside of the card blank for a personal note.

Card #6:
A Transfer “xoxo” in green and a red leaf spray decorate the lower right corner of card #6. On the inside, a simple flower Transfer in the right corner.

Card #7:
I can’t resist using some of the 49 & Market packaging. The outside of this card uses a sentiment Transfer and a fussy cut leaf and butterfly from the packaging. On the inside, you’ll find a sentiment and leaf Transfer with a large flower, again fussy cut from the packaging.

Card #8:

How many of us have said this to someone we love. Say it again with this beautiful Transfer of the saying as well as the green leaf spray to the right of it. Everything else is on the original card front. Inside the card I wrote “and back” with a fussy cut leaf spray from the 49 & Market packaging. If this is your first time using Rub-On Transfers or hasn’t used them in a while, I have a quick video that shows you how I transfer these amazing designs.
