Barb brought this Crumb Cake make & take for us Saturday. It uses a new hostess set called Faith in Nature. The sentiment is from Happy Greetings (Summer Mini Catalog). We burnished the pear using a sponge dauber, and used the Cutter Kit on the top two layers. You can also see the Framed Tulips embossing folder used for the front of the card.
Bea's make & take uses Paisley Petals dsp, which is going to be in the new catalog July 1. This card also used the Fun Flower die for the Big Shot, Scallop Trim Border and Modern Label punches.
Debbie brought this beautiful Very Vanilla square sympathy card, which uses a phrase from Thoughts & Prayers along with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and a piece of vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware with a few inches of taffeta.
Heather brought this clean and simple make & take, which uses the Cottage Garden stamp set with some 1-1/4" Old Olive striped grosgrain and basic rhinestones.
