I got several emails asking about my vacation. First – yes – I still plan on posting on my blog from there. I am hoping to at least! :) Second – yes – I still love St. John first and foremost. We just decided to do something a bit different.
I thought I would share what I made for my mother-in-law for her birthday. I always make her sets of cards. This year I made a few extras for her to share with a friend who liked them.
Here are the first ones. I used soft pink Hero Arts notecards and turned them inside out. I like to do this for a white outside and the fun pink inside. :) I Cuttlebuged them with the dots, trimmed them and rounded the corners. The strip across each card is Cuttlebugged with a dot border. Behind each Martha Stewart dimensional flower, I tucked a knot of green silk ribbon. The green piece is scalloped-edged with the Stampin' Up border punch. Finally, I stamped with a variety of greetings from my new favorite Papertrey Ink set.
This next part of the set is made in a very similiar way, but simplier. I used a mix of silk ribbon colors.
