Springy Card Set



Hey everyone!  I'm sharing a spring time card set today.



I'm not a huge fan of mass production, so even on card sets I like there to be some variation from card to card.

For this set, I die cut the flowers/leaves multiple times and then watercolored them with my Kuretake Gansai watercolors.

While those were drying, I added a soft blue wash to some watercolor cardstock panels.



The sentiment was stamped on each of the panels (from Avery Elle's Modern Blooms set), and then I arranged/adhered the flowers to each of the cards.

For the card box, I simple followed the instructions from this tutorial:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYDv2mJ3npw&feature=youtu.be




That's all for today, but more exciting things coming at the end of the week, including a full reveal of the January Neat & Tangled release on Thursday (next week is the official release week, but since we delayed the release for CHA, we're treating everyone to the reveal a little early). I've got a few things in this release, and Danielle has been sneaking pics on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/neatandtangled/), so you might want to check that out.


That's all for today.  Hope your week is off to a good start!
