"Springtime" Heritage Card Set

Hi everyone, this is Carissa from Happily Ever Paper Crafter.

Today is my first Monday posting on the Pumpkin Spice Blog! I am so happy to be apart of this amazing Design Team. I am thrilled to be showing you my creations using the amazing products found at the ShopPumpkinSpice store. 

I created these four matching 3x3 cards using the Echo Park "Springtime" collection 6x6 paper pad.


This 24 sheet double sided paper pad is selling right now for $3.35!!! Great price!!!



Using my Gypsy and the Heritage Cricut cartridge, I cut out the birds, shadows, charms, and flourishes at varying sizes. I used 3 different pieces of double sided paper. I varied the layouts by turning over the paper and using the other side. 

I took two other 6x6 sheets, cut them in half, and scored them at 3'' to make the cards. Easy peasy.



I saved the negative cuts from the inside of the charm layer and used them inside the cards. Just stamp a sentiment when needed and the card is ready to go.


Supplies:
Echo Park "Springtime" 6x6 paper pad
Heritage Cricut Cartridge, Cricut Expression machine, Gypsy
Antique Linen Distress Ink
Rhinestone bling
Ribbon from my stash
