So Saffron Weather Together Card

1- With your paper trimmer cut the Woman standing with umbrella card base from the kit and cut in half to remove the front from the back at 3 ½”. Then trim again just on the right side of the girl at 2 ¾”.
2- Remove the green pair of boots with paper snips from the group of boots die cut.
3- Trim about 1/16” from the right, left, and bottom of the envelope to separate the So Saffron from the back. Remove the top part of the envelope so you have a piece about 3 ½” x 4 ½”
4- Stamp the grass image in Pear Pizzazz along the bottom of the Woman with umbrella cardstock. Add another grouping of grass a little higher on the right side of the boots. You can use 2nd generation stamping to get a lighter shade of Pear Pizzazz if you want.
5- Stamp the puddle image (horizontal lines) in both Balmy Blue and Gray Granite under the boots and across the cardstock.
6- Stamp your greeting “No Matter the Weather We’re in this Together” in Basic Gray on the Circle Die Cut.
7- Adhere the greeting to the left of the boots. Wrap 15” of twine around the bottom of the card and tie a bow to the left just over the base of the circle. Then add the Green Die Cut Boots with dimensionals over the original boots.
8- Stamp some rain drops in the sky with Balmy Blue ink.
9- If you want you can emboss the Calypso Coral cardstock piece with the Subtle Embossing Folder.
10- Add the So Saffron envelope piece at an angle to the center of the So Saffron cardbase. Then add the Calypso Coral cardstock at an opposing angle to the center of the card.
11- Then place the Woman and umbrella piece with dimensionals in the center. Apply 3 epoxy rain drop around the greeting.

All Done!

Balmy Blue Brighter Days Ahead Card

1- Use the second piece from the Woman with the umbrella cardbase. Stamp the grass with Pear Pizzazz along the bottom of the card and add a second row just above. Stamp a couple clouds in Gray Granite and add rain drops with Balmy Blue.
2- Stamp the grass with Pear Pizzazz on the white back of the envelope we cut up. Then fussy cut them out.
3- Stamp your greeting “Wishing You Brighter Days Ahead” on the left side of the Whisper White ¾” strip in Basic Gray.
4- Emboss the Balmy Blue cardstock with the Subtle Embossing folder then adhere it to the center of the Thick Whisper White cardbase. Add the Sky image centered to the right of the Balmy Blue cardstock. Add one grouping of grass to the left of the Sky image.
5- Add the second grouping to the right of the of the greeting on the strip. Wrap 15” of twine around your finger tips and adhere it to the back of the strip behind the boots and grass. Add the greeting strip with dimensionals, just above the bottom of the Sky image so the left and right line up with the Balmy Blue cardstock.
6- Then trim a pair of boots from the Die Cut grouping. I used the blue boots. Add them to the left of the grass on the strip. Add 3 rhinestones – I placed the larger one over the little bit of calypso coral from the other piece we cut off.

All Done!
