Happy Spring

 
For my design team project at The Cutting Cafe this week, I picked a very cute cutting file called
 Tall Flower Shaped Cards.  Also used the envelope from the String And Button Envelope Set.
This is a very easy project to make and a great way to use up small scraps of left over print papers.
 
(Note: Normally you would use eyelets for the string closure on the envelope, but I didn't have the right color in my stash, so I used white brads instead of the eyelets.)
 
Supplies used:

The Cutting Cafe Files:

McGill Tag Punch, white cardstock, red, yellow, green print papers
Crystal Stickers black pearls, black button, brads, crochet thread

Hey Deloris! I just love, love your card. The colours are spectacular and I love them against the white. I just might scrap-lift this for my Mother's Day card this year.

SO CUTE!!! It's like being at a picnic on a card. Love the gingham base and the beautiful yellow flower and the wonderful crisp white envelope!

I must say, as a person who has never been a big fan of gingham, this makes me give gingham a second look. Very pretty card!

Sparkly Engineer said...

I can never resist gingham and this is especially cute in the way you used it. It's super fun and fresh
