Springtime Card Set


My sister has just arrived back from a holiday in the US and managed to bring me back a copy of the Papercraftss special edition magazine '350 Cards & Gifts'. There is a big section on card sets in there that I just LOVE and I discovered that the Moxie Fab World blog has a challenge on at the moment to make a card set - so of course I had to join in! I started off with this week's Waltzingmouse sketch but got a bit carried away with adding bits as you can see...

Here's the whole set:

I started with the lovely Springtime Vintage DSP and combined it with the new mini catty set Four Frames. The roses were cut from one of the sheets of the DSP - paper snips really make this a lot easier! I added some Baja Breeze ribbon, ruffled on two and in a bow on the others. Here are some close ups of the different designs:

The Crumb Cake layer in the background was cut with the Top Note Bigz die then stamped with white Craft ink. Here's the other design:

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Four Frames, Baroque Motifs, Occasional Greetings, Fresh Cuts, Sweet Birthday, Oval All
Ink: Always Artichoke, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Paper: Springtime Vintage DSP, Basic Grey, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Baja Breeze ribbon, basics pearls, decorative label punch, Bigz Butterflies die, Bigz Top Note die, beautiful butterflies embosslits die, oval punch, scallop oval punch

Thanks for stopping by!

Bristol... I only passed through it a few months ago but the one time I went through I got a speeding ticket... a camera ticket. AURGH!! :) My friends later told me that if I get two more I'd be deported :P
