As soon as I saw this gift set on Kathryn’s Stampin’ World I knew that it had to be my very next project. The stamps used are all from either Sale-A-Bration Catalog -FREE- or from the Occassion’s Catalog. These five cards were created using the coordinating colors for Wild Flower Fields. All stamped and punched images are adhered with glue dots.
I used Kathryn’s measurements for these cards but after making them realized that they are too big for the 3 X 3 envelopes so I will have to make my own envelopes. The accent piece across the bottom its 1 1/2″ and the DSP across the bottom is 1 1/4″. Next time I will make that lower part a bit narrower and on the bear card, stamp him and punch him out for dimension.
