2021 is just moving along quickly and here is Massachusetts spring is underway. The sunshine and warm air feel amazing!! The beauty of the trees and flowers blooming is breathtaking! And this month's blog hop is perfect for springtime! So lets celebrate spring with some beautiful flowers, sunshine and happiness!
I hope you joined me from Jean Beaulieu's blog and after viewing mine, be sure to continue on to Melissa Thomas's Blog. And if you get lost along the way, there is a list of hoppers at the end of the blog.
Because Mother's Day is around the corner here in the US, I chose to create projects that focus on that. I choice to omit any greetings so the cards can be used anyway the recipients want!
You may recognize this design from a previous blog post that I used the In Good Taste Suite. Here, I used the Fine Art Floral DSP, which sadly will retire, but the Gold ribbon, Art Gallery stamp set and Floral Gallery Dies will carryover to the new annual catalog. Suites and bundles do not carryover. So don't wait, grab the Fine Art Floral DSP and Art Gallery Bundle (10% savings) while you can.
I have used this set here and there, but...I will admit, it sort of intimidated me! I am so happy I gave it another go!!! I LOVE how my projects came out!!! What do you think??
For the envelope box, I used Basic White and then layered Pool Party and the Fine Art Flower DSP. The Bellyband is 2x12 and is also the DSP. The white layers is cut from the Ornate Frames. The flowers were first stamped in Pool Party, then Night of Navy. I added a piece of Fine Art Gold Ribbon and frayed the ends. I also tied a knot using the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.
I made 4 cards to include in the box. They were each created the same way and I used Pool Party and Petal Petal as the cardbases. For 2 of the cards, I skipped the 1 3/4x4 layer and allowed the DSP to show. And then the other 2 cards I did used that layer in a different DSP pattern. I am not sure which I love more the Pool Party or the Petal Pink.
DSP 4x5 1/4
Circle 2 3/4
Layer 1 3/4x4
My FAVORITE part of making this project is, I decided to make the matching envelopes! Why I do not do this more often is a mystery to me!!!!
I hope you enjoyed my projects this month!! Be sure to contunue on the hop!

I love your cards and the card box. Thanks for including the video. I still use my envelope punch board often. The lacy white background piece is a beautiful touch. EEK! I am so sad that the polka dot tulle ribbon is retiring. It's one of my favorites of all time!
