May Creative Cards - Sweet for You Greetings

Hello Creative Friends... So happy you're here checking out how to put together this months card kit! You're going to love it! While I love die cuts there is just something I love about being able to have a white edge on my graphic images. I included all these graphic images on your sentiment page. Trim them and leave a white border if you like that like I do. I'd do all my trimming first, it will just take a few minutes... promise!

Card 1 - Fold card stock to form card base. Attach embossed card stock. Wrap twine around polka dot patterned paper and tie in a bow, trim a notch in the bottom and attach. Add flowers and rhinestone center. Trim mat and attach sentiment. Add sequins.
