Kaleidoscope Cards

I had a couple of pieces of ultra-cheery Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper that I've been eager to use, and these six cards are what transpired. I think they're pretty self-explanatory except for one thing: On all but one of the cards, I used Crystal Effects to "pop out" part of the DSP design, usually circles. You can see a little bit of the reflection of the dried CEs in the photos.

If you have any questions about these fun cards, leave a comment and I'll post an answer for you!

Great cards. I got this paper out of curiosity, not my normal colors or patterns - and I love it. Your cards really balance all the components.
