Express Yourself

One for the Girls…..

For my Stamp-A-Stack classes for August I decided to make one set of cards ‘for the girls’ and one set ‘for the boys’.

Today I’m sharing the ‘ones for the girls’.

For these cards I’ve used the new Flower Shop Bundle (Stamp set & Coordinating Punch) along with the pretty Gingham Garden designer series paper.

The card on the left was also used for my Workshop Make & Takes in August.

Here’s another photo of the card on the left with a second version stepped up.

Just a small addition of a clay button which has been coloured with a dauber and Daffodil Delight inkpad.

And here’s another photo of the stepped up card along with a matching envelope.
