My wonderful husband allowed me to go on crafty shopping spree for Valentine's Day. I found all of these wonderful Spring products created by K&Company. This has been a pretty rough week, (must be Spring fever!!), so I decided to create a few cards to provide some hope and inspiration. The cards are using paper from K&Company, their Specialty pack, along with background material from their Susan Winget Botanical and Nature Designer series. I love the clear overlays with decorative borders. I think they make beautiful cards. The birds, butterflies, and dragonflies are diecuts also from K&Company. K&Company provides such amazing materials and papers that allow me to create a wonderful card in a matter of seconds. The beautiful bead/flower accent is from Prima Marketing. I think the shade of purple in the beading matches the card materials perfectly. The word "Hope" and the shadow feature was cut using my Cricut Home Decor cartridge. I cut the words using maximum speed and pressure at sizes of one and two inches for the corresponding cards. I can now only hope that these "Hope" cards provide you with some cardmaking inspiration!! Have a great President's Day weekend!! Patty T.
