Hostess Gift

I was originally going to share one of the two cards we made at a recent workshop but apparently I didn't photograph them, I'll have to get on that. So instead, this is the gift set that I made for the hostess.

I knew that this hostess loves this years' "in colours" so I decided to make her a set of cards using them as well as preview for the guests some of the items we would be using in the workshop - beautiful wings embosslits, pearls and berry blossoms dsp. I'll have to show you one by one rather than the full set because I can never get a good picture when I try to get that many cards in one shot.
It's difficult to tell in the photos but there is a bit of dimension to the butterflies. I placed a glue dot in the center of the butterfly so that I could bend the wings up so it looked as though it just landed on the paper.
I love the way this set turned out and I think I'll have to make a set for myself to use! These in colours are definitely my favourite since I became a demo over four years ago. I'm so glad they stick around for two years now.

Stamps: SU fabulous phrases
Ink: SU early espresso
Paper: SU early espresso, ww, pool party, calypso coral, wisteria wonder, island indigo, lucky limeade, berry blossoms dsp
Ribbon: SU 3/8" ruffled ribbon in pool party, calypso coral, wisteria wonder, island indigo, lucky limeade
Punch: SU scallop edge border
Die cut: SU Beautiful Wings embosslits die
Misc: SU basic pearls
