"Springtime" Heritage Card Set

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 Shop Pumpkin Spice 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.
