This is another of the gift sets I've been working on lately. This one is done using Basic Grey's Perhaps 6x6 collection.
The base starts out as a 6.25" Petal Folder by Paper Adventures. I simply folded up two of the petals to make the heart. I attached the paper that I cut into 6 inch circles with my Creative Memories circle cutters. The floral pieces are faux stitched...and yes, I did the curved pieces by hand. I also pierced around all of the white borders for added interest...and yes. by hand.
The little tabby is SU!'s Round Tab Punch and it is trimmed thinner. I saw this somewhere and I don't have a clue where right now. You punch your punch and then taking the punched out tab, insert it into your punch again to make it skinnier. I'm going to love this idea for ribbon ties. If this is your idea, or you remember seeing it somewhere, please let me know and I'd love to give proper credit to the smartie who thought of it first!! The heart rimmed tag is by Making Memories and I ran it through my Big Shot to crimp it....loving that little trick! The Marvy Scallop punch is dressed up with 1/8 inch circle punches. The pink and green decorative brads are by Making Memories and they look great with this designer paper.
These are two of the cards I tucked in the basket. They are simple and left unstamped so they can be used for any purpose. I had fun mixing the papers and the embellishments on these. I stamped Stampendous!'s ruffled flower in black ink on basic grey scraps and cut them out, layering them behind the Prima flowers. The pink flower has an EK Success gem in the center. The blue flower has a Making Memories decorative brad. Each square is faux stitched for added interest.
These are also very simple and are the same layout excepting for placement of the Stampendous! sparkle dot stickers on the SU! slit punched border. The papers from the set give the cards a totally different feel. The flowers are prima and the glittery brads are by Creative Imaginations.
Thanks so much for stopping by....and I'm looking forward to getting back to my regular posting again!!
