"For Always" Card Set

Check out this adorable card set featuring the "For Always" papers from Close to my Heart.  I love ANYTHING using black and white with accent colors, so this is perfect for my taste.  The cards are clean and simple and go together very nicely.  The flower featured is from the June 2013 Stamp of the Month set, so purchase it while you can.  Love it!  The full card set is shown first, then a close-up of each individual card afterward. 

Featured colors are Black, Lagoon, Honey, and Cranberry.  Only one 5" strip was used, so you can create many cards from just one sheet of 12x12 pattern paper.  I used the exclusive CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the sentiment swirl design and the flower, page 32 and page 33 of the booklet.  I adore these cards - have fun creating them too!  :)

Stamp sets used are:
"A Flowering Bunch" - June SOM, #S1306
"True Thank You" - (exclusive), #M1029
"A Blossom" - A1121
"The Best Things" - C1503
"Universal Backgrounds" - D1477

Happy Creating!

p.s.  I created these as a workshop set and only charged $10...that's just $1.67 per card, with leftover pattern paper AND includes the envelope.  You can't beat the price and beauty of a handmade card.  Stop buying cards at the store - for real, people.  Ha ha!

Honey, with a 5" piece of the B&T paper zip strip as the black center stripe.
 I ADORE this swirl stamp from "The Best Things" stamp set.  Looks great on everything!  A bling button in the flower center is a great final touch!
 Isn't the tiny stamped flower cute with a mini button added?  Sometimes it's the little things that count.  :)
 I like the mini swirl that complements the larger one to help offset the sentiment.  Cute and so easy.  Faux-ribbon is tucked behind the flower...just two 1" pieces of leftover zip strip, cut to look like ribbon.  You don't always have to use leaves.  LOL!
 You can take any background stamp to add flair to a plain cut shape - I used the grid stamp from "Universal Backgrounds" to add some texture to this flower, topped off with a pretty pearl adhesive button.  So cute!
 The same swirl stamp is used for each corner - just re-ink, flip, and stamp in the opposite corner.  All of the flowers in this card set are lifted with a pop dot, and the edges are sponged with matching ink to set it apart from the white background.  Simple and so pretty.
