The Craft's Meow at Lily Pad Cards

Welcome to another challenge at Lily Pad Cards!  We were given this wonderful set of stamps from The Cat's Meow, called Simply Delightful, designed by Nina B, to work with:


I chose the solid flower and leaf to work with, and decided to make some little gift cards.  They are all 2.75" by 4.25", or an A2 notecard cut in half.  Each one started off stamped in a different chalk ink color and grass chalk ink for the leaves, then I ran them through a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Then each one was framed in a coordinating color to the flower, and embellished a different way:


Adding various embellishments and varying the layout and sentiments gives each card a slightly different look.


supplies: white cardstock, Hero Arts Grass Layering Paper, The Craft's Meow "Simply Delightful" stamps, Hero Hues chalk inks Grass, Poppy, Punch, Iris, Cerulean, Versafine onyx black ink for sentiments, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, various ribbons, gems, buttons for embellishments


Thanks for coming by and please visit the Lily Pad Cards blog to see what the other design team members made this week.  Then enter our challenge - the only requirement is to use some kind of embossing, your choice of supplies.
