I found this all occasion card set by Melissa Huie on UStamp this week. She used a different color scheme, but I absolutely adored the whole set, so I decided that it would be a good set to make last night.
Here is the card box - you can see it better in the picture above - the lid has a little lace edge that goes around it. The box holds all of the cards inside.
The color is a little wierd on this card. I decided to use some of the old paper from last year's mini catalogue. I sometimes like paper so much that I won't use it! Anyway, now I'm using plenty of it!
This card features the Kindess Matters stamp set - I just love the natural looking butterflies in this set. I watercolored the bottom butterflies and added smooch to it.
By the way, did you know you can get this Kindness matters stamp set for FREE starting January 24?!?!? Yes, it is a part of the FREE Sale-a-Bration products coming soon!!! Free makes me like it even more! ;)
This card is plain and simple - I switched to the scallop trim border punch here.
Another simple card - I like the pearls down the middle of the Always flourish here.
Do you know I've had this tulip frame embossing folder for nearly a year still in it's package? Embarrassing, I know! I did get it out and use it last night. I added chocolate chip ink to the tulips to make them stand out.
This is probably my favorite card with the tulip folder. I like the top not die sticking out from underneath and the chocolate chip scallop ribbon going across the card.
