One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

More card sets...Betsy's idea

I used Turning a New Leaf and die cut only part of the leaves from a 2 inch pattern paper, then stamped with the same leaf using the same color as the paper...I made 8 cards for this set and used an assortment of sentiments...the packaging is done with a paper lunch sack, die cut at both ends and stitched at the bottom...fun times making all these cards.


 This is a beautiful technique...all the cards look so elegant...I have now made two sets with this technique...the Happy hydrangea was another great die for this technique...my BFF made two sets using the Pretty Peonies and also the Beautiful Butterflies... you should try it, you will like it and if you want to watch Betsy (she used Harvest berries die and stamp sets...gorgeous)  do this technique go HERE.
