I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've been really busy trying to get my house back in order after the holidays. Including re-organizing some things in my craft room. I cleaned up my desk yesterday and it looked so clean that I couldn't help but sit down and mess it up really fast:)
One of the first things I bought in the Occasions Mini Catalog was the Designer Cuts Cards & Envelope set. I thought they were really pretty and couldn't wait to make something with them.
On the first card, I weaved Real Red 1/8" Taffeta ribbon through the holes and then just adhered a piece of Real Red card stock to the back. I had a hard time picking out a sentiment, so I wound up using the "With Love" stamp from the Hand Penned stamp set from the Holiday Mini, which is no longer available. I have my fingers crossed that we will see it again in the new Idea Book & Catalog on June 1st!
For the second card, I used the new Framelits Heart Collection. I used the heart that was a little bigger than the heart on the card along with Calypso Coral card stock and adhered it to the inside of the card. I wrapped 3/8" Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon around the front of the card and then used the new 1/8" Calypso Coral Organdy ribbon to tie on the cute little Trinket Key, which is available on page 200 of the Idea Book & Catalog. I thought it was a nice little touch along with the heart, which was added with a dimensional. It came from the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits die.
This one is my favorite! What do you think?
