I wanted to create a card set using one of my FAVORITE, NEW paper packs….Seaside paper pack!

The colors of Sorbet, Hollyhock, Desert Sand, Glacier & Pear just spoke to me this month…J

Today, I am showing you 4 of the 8 card designs I created…and I will share an up close picture of one card today. 

Card design #6 from this 16 card workshop…

These card patterns came from the LOVELY Wishes How-To-Book, where it shows you how to create a 16 card workshop with only 3 sheets of paper!!

While I followed the “rule” of using 3 pieces of paper (+ card bases) to create these cards as per the book…I did add a strip of lagoon cardstock, punched with our new border punch to each card!

I ALSO was trying to showcase MANY of our new products!! 
Do you see all the NEW products??? J

Very simple, but beautiful. 

My favorite thing about this Pretty Petals stamp set…it’s CRICUT Compatible!!  So, all of the flower shapes were cut with our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, & after they were cut…I just needed to stamp the flower image on top of the blank piece!!

If you’d like to see the rest of this card set,  come back and join me here at my blog to learn more about how EASY it is to create a simple workshop like this one!!
