For my first card, I trimmed down the watercolor stripe patterned paper just slightly to leave a border of color on the Aqua Mist card base. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly. I die cut a pre-printed floral bouquet and glued it down. I cut the label from Fresh Snow linen cardstock and stamped the flourishes in Aqua Mist. Using Winter Wisteria cardstock, I cut the large word "note" and stamped the "just a" part of the sentiment in the matching ink. Quick and easy!
For my second card, I cut a base from Fresh Snow linen cardstock. I trimmed a piece of Aqua Mist for the banner flag and cut another label from linen cardstock, stamping the flourishes in Spring Rain ink. I slipped the banner through the label and glued it in place on the card base. I adhered a smaller pre-printed floral embellishment on top. Then, I stamped "just a note" in Spring Rain and Winter Wisteria ink on the bottom of the card. Another easy card!
For my third card, I cut a scalloped notecard out of Aqua Mist cardstock. I seriously love this die! I glued a piece of the watercolor stripe patterned paper to the front. I cut both the square and circle frames out of Fresh Snow linen cardstock, making sure to cut out the centers as well. I stamped the flourishes in Spring Rain and Winter Wisteria ink as directed.
That sweet little stamped bouquet gave me fits. I believe this one is my seventh try. I ended up slightly changing the colors because it just didn't look right. I used Spring Moss ink instead of Mint Julep for the lighter color on the leaves, Amethyst Allure for the flower centers, and Tropical Teal on the Aqua Mist flowers. I followed the directions for everything else. Once I was happy with it, I glued it to my card.
It's so sweet! Of course, I'm partial to scallops. I would love a long border die just like this. I haven't made a square card in ages, so this was fun to make. I can't wait to use it! I'm very happy with these new cards. :)
