There are so many great sets in this new mini that I had trouble choosing my favorite! I went with the Baby Blossoms set and the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper and had such fun making these projects.
First is this set of 3X3 cards (with Fancy Favor box container) that shows off some of my favorite patterns in this paper pack. Tucking four of these little cards in the Fancy Favor Box gives the recipient great gift insert cards for weddings or showers or any occasion. You can't go wrong with these colors...Pear Pizzazz and Baja Breeze are gorgeous on their own and together.
I have another 3X3 card with matching envelope for you...This one is a little more detailed and features a mini scallop circle card on the front. (Check back Monday to see a photograph of the card showing the mini scallop circle card opened.) Masking a circle and small oval punch and sponging the inside created a fun and cohesive look, and I admit I didn't even use the Stamp A Ma Jig for this bunch of flowers. So sweet and so easy.
Finally, I made this card in which I cut out the center of the oval and used double layers of dimensionals as well as a few flowers for a shadow box effect. The new tulips embossing folder can be used in a variety of ways, and in this instance, I sponged some Pretty Ink Pink ink lightly over just the edges and trimmed it down to a layer though it is lovely on the card base layer too.
I tried the wrist twist we used with the old Roses in Winter set, but wasn't thrilled with my first effort, so I'll have to play with that again soon...and also try it for a little Rock and Roll technique...
