Card gift set

Our Secret Sister reveal is this morning at church so I thought I would share the set of cards I made for her, I really don't know how much she sends out cards so I tried to keep them simple and very easy for her to mail if she wants to do that.  These were using all the same paper pack so that they would go together, usually I make them from totally different papers.  I used DCWV Garden party paper on all of them so under each card I will only list the items that were used to embellish.  I tried to use pieces of the paper pack that have a lot of detail already so I didn't have to do much to them.

Martha Stewart -- Border punch
Joanns essentials -- thank you layered sentiment sticker

Hero Arts -- sentiment and flower stamp set
I did a little piercing under the sentiment

Doodlebug design-- sentiment stamp
McGill -- flower punch, shaped with my stylus
Stickles -- Cinnamon (flower center)

Martha Stewart -- border punch
Pennyblack -- sprinkles and smiles sentiment stamp set
Me & my big ideas-- gems

I love it when the paper can do most of the work for you when you need a card quickly.  Can you believe it is Friday already, this month is going to be over before you know it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and sure hope you have a wonderful and creative weekend!!

These are all beautiful, Connie. She had to be delighted with them. A person always needs cards for certain things and I'm sure she'll use them. I love that you kept them easy to mail. They're all still very interesting and pretty in design. Nice sentiments.
