First is this cute Swirly Bird card! I won't tell you how long it took me to get all those colors embedded behind the black swirl! It's not hard - just time consuming to run all the different colors through the framelit. But I think it was worth it! The sentiment comes from Sunshine Sayings - a great stamp set for putting together sentiments.
What is spring without flying a kite? How many years has it been since you have run with a kite coaxing it to stay up in the air? I can't count the years! Plus I was never very good - or patient to fly a kite! I remember beach days when my kids were young and they would get their daddy to fly the kite with them - not me!!
This card also uses the Swirly Bird stamp and framelits as well as Layering Love. I just love the font and the words in this set! For a little sparkle, I adhered a few sequins.
Finally, I have a cute little box (that I CASE-d from a UK demonstrator) that I made using Sale-A-Bration products. I made the box with the Inside the Line DSP and made a belly band around it using the Sale-A-Bration Glimmer Paper (Sweet Sugarplum.) I die cut the bee from Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper also to coordinate with the little bee on the DSP. The box was super easy to make and only takes a few minutes. Here are the directions if you want to make one: It should hold a few small chocolates for a sweet little treat.
Cut your DSP to 6" x 12" (so you can make 2 from one sheet of paper)
Score on the long side at - 2, 5, 7, and 10"
Score on the short side at - 2" and 4"
