I had so much fun putting these two cards together with some of the new items from the Summer Mini Catalog. This first card I CASED from Michelle but changed the Jumbo Eyelets out for the 5/16th Neutrals Jumbo Brads. The Square Lattice Embossing Folder is so neat! It makes the cardstock feel like material. I brayered the Old Olive Classic Ink onto the Embossing folder and layed the Kraft Cardstock onto the embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but there is Old Olive inside the negative portion of the card. The Stamp set is Tropical Party. The little tag is stamped with Define your life and punched out with the Med. Jewelry Tag Punch and put on with a mini glue dot. The other colors in the card are Soft Suede and Old Olive. The Ribbon is Old Olive & I used Hemp Twine to tie around the ribbon. This would make a great invitation to a party.
This next card features the Elements of Style stamp set. This is one of my favorite sets.
I'm partial to flower sets. I probably have almost all of them. This card design I found on Robin M's blog. I changed the colors of the cardstock slightly and the added brads and took away ribbon, etc. I really like how it turned out. I used the bleaching technique for the flowers. The cardstock that I stamped the flowers onto is Soft Suede. They came out looking like So Saffron. So I added the So Saffon border. The DSP is Bella Blue. I've had that sitting around forever so I'm glad that I finally got to use it. The cardstock in this card is Kraft, Vanilla, So Saffron, & Soft Suede. The brads are the Copper ones from the Vintage Brad collection. Everything was sponged with Soft Suede to give it the antiqued look. I use a Stampin' Dimentional to pop up the bird & the saying. I hope that you like these two cards.
