Garden of Greetings - May Creative Cards

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 #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.
