A Simple Set

I wanted a fairly simple set of cards for a friend who doesn't do too much stamping any more. So I pulled out my Verve Visual set, Fancy Florals. With it's four sizeable sentiments, it's easy to put together a card set. I also used this great Gretel paper by Cosmo Cricket. The two rounded corners give them a modern, note card feel. Or at least I think so. I again used my FAVE new product (and it's so cheap at 2 for $4, hehe), the Sakura white glaze pen. The punches on the cards are on mini pop dots. And that's some more gorgeous May Arts ribbon.



Recipe:

Stamps: Verve Visual Fancy Florals
Paper: very vanilla, ruby red, Cosmo Cricket Gretel
Ink: Versamagic dew drops in pumpkin spice, wheat, oasis green, red brick and jumbo java
Other: Lasting Impressions antique brads, May Arts ribbon, coluzzle, marvy giga scalloped circle and mega circle punches, stamp-a-ma-jig, ProvoCraft mini scallop scissors, mini pop dots, sakura white glaze pen


Here's a quick shot of the cards in the box.
