Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice Blog. I am happy to share with you a set of cards I created using the October Afternoon "Cakewalk" 8x8 paper pad. The quality of this paper is just amazing. And I love how the papers are loose, so you can move them around to see how they go together.
When I started looking through these paper I immediately thought of my grandma. These papers are just her style; vintage with a hint of whimsy and pastel colors. So I decided to make her this set of cards. The die cuts are from "A Child's Year" Cricut cartridge. Each image reminds me of something I would have done at my grandma's house ages ago.
Each of the cards measure 4x4.
In these cards I used twine as an embellishment.
All of the layers of paper are popped up with dimensional tape.
It looks really neat in person.
Here I used enamel dots as my embellishments.
These die cuts really hit home. We would play dress-up and rocking horse all the time!!
And of course, my new obsession...
...making matching envelopes with everything.
Here I made kraft envelopes and used scraps of patterned paper on the edge.
