Kanban die cut Concept cards, toppers and Egyptian range

Foil Play now offers a gorgeous selection of goodies from Kanban, including Concept cards, die cut toppers, Pyramage sheets and Egyptian themed products.

Concept cards featured as part of a recent TSV on the QVC shopping channel. There is a wide range of cards available, in both foiled and non-foiled finishes, for a variety of occasions.

Each pack makes one finished card, with extra die cut elements to use on other projects. The sheets are die cut, so no scissors are needed - all you need to complete the card is your choice of adhesive.

If you are new to card making, the packs will enable you to make stunning cards quickly and easily. For experienced crafters, the packs can be used with other products, to create cards on a more advanced level.If you'd like to add a little extra sparkle to your cards, why not add a bit of Kanban Bling - mixed colour packs of 3mm or 5mm round self adhesive sparkly gems.

There is a huge selection of die cut foiled toppers to choose from, many of which are particularly suitable for male cards.

The designs available include:

  • sports (football, golf, rugby, cricket, cycling, extreme sports, horse racing);
  • hobbies (music, drinking, playing cards, gardening, rambling, martial arts, snooker, darts); and
  • transport (motorcycles, ships and cars).
The Egyptian range has been launched to co-incide with the return of the Tutankhamun treasures exhibition to the UK, and has also featured on QVC.

There is a choice of die cut toppers featuring Egyptian Icons: Tutankhamun (of course!), Bastet, Queen Nefertiti and Egyptian Goddesses along with a choice of co-ordinating backing papers, card and self adhesive ribbon borders.

I made the card above using the Bastet die cut toppers. One topper is matted and layered on mirri card and toning card. I have decoupaged the cat only from another identical topper, and mounted it on top with self adhesive foam pads.

I embellished the edges of the card with metallic moon confetti, and mounted a gold moon under Bastet's collar with an adhesive foam pad, to add a little extra dimension.

The background of the card features the Egyptian Icons backing paper, whilst the foiled border with gold hieroglyphics is taken from the middle of the Bastet die cut topper sheet.
