Card set – a great gift


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.
