Hello Everyone... While I can say that we never really had a winter here in California I know some of you had really long cold winters. I think spring has arrived across the country so to honor the new blooms I created this beautiful kit Garden of Greetings!
Following are a few tips and tricks to getting your cards put together. This month there are three small 3x3 cards they all have a clear envelope. The rest of the cards all have white envelopes. I used a grey ink to the edges of most of my white pieces and a yellow ink on the edges of the yellow pieces... totally optional!
Card #1 - Attach patterned paper to the front of the green card base. Mat the embossed blue cardstock with the white piece of slightly bigger size. Wrap the yellow gingham ribbon around that piece and tie in a bow. Attach to the card. Trim sentiment and attach. Layer flower die cuts and button with twine and attach. This card has a white insert.
Card #2 - Fold cardstock to form card base and attach patterned paper. The green ribbon is hand dyed and intended to be crinkled, wrap it around the card and tie in a bow. Attach sentiments with pop dots. Layer flower with velvet button and attach.
Card #3 - Add ink to the embossed floral cardstock to highlight the pattern and attach to card base ( note that I didn't add ink towards the bottom). Trim sentiment and attach. Layer flower, leaves and button with thread bow and attach with a pop dot. This card has a white insert.
Card #4 - Attach patterned paper to card base. Trim notches in top and bottom of the yellow heart paper and attach. Trim sentiment and attach. Tie a bow with the blue ribbon and attach. Add button with twine bow.
Card # 5 & 6 - Fold the 3x6" cardstock to form a 3x3" card. Attach patterned paper. For the card on the left trim and attach sentiment strips. Layer flower die cuts and attach with velvet button center. For the card on the right trim and attach sentiment. Wrap yellow teine around card and tie in a bow. Attach die cut heart. attach flower and add yellow glitter glue to flower centers. These cards have white inserts.
Card #7 - Fold 3x6" cardstock to form 3x3 card. Attach patterned paper. Round corners of turquoise paper with corner rounder punch and attach. Trim sentment and attach. Attach flower punch.
Hope you enjoy this months cards. They were a joy to create for you!
