Project 383: First of several card gift sets

I am making a whole bunch of card sets as gifts for people. I should have started this process MUCH sooner but here we all are, crafting late into the evening to get things done before I see the recipients! I'm using it as an opportunity to go through my stash and use things I haven't played with in a while.

This is the first of a few card set posts. The set featured here was such fun. I stamped and die cut the fruit Sizzix set Claire gave me last year and used mini 4x4 cards as my base. The colored papers are from a Recollections square pack (no die cutting or trimming involved!) and I embossed them in different folders: the triangle is from Stampin' Up, the houndstooth is Sizzix, the swiss dots are Cuttlebug and the basketweave I can't remember. I added different sized enamel dots from Recollections to match each card. They took a bit longer than you'd think from looking at them but I really love them!

This next set was a bit simpler. I die cut some intricate butterflies and then layered them over punched hearts. I die cut big chevron patterned circles and added a few touches of bling and enamel dots. They would have been really quick if it weren't for the 8 die cuts required. Still, a very clean card and it makes a nice set for the person who is receiving it....thought I must say I prefer the fruit!


  1. I'm with you, I prefer the fruit too. I love the use of the big enamel dots, so hard to use as they are so big. That butterfly die is lovely against the hearts. I LOL at you working late to get them done, why do we do this.. Cx

  2. Ooh what a fab selection of cards Jessie.. I really like the zingy fruity cards… the embossing looks really good with the fruit! and love the bright and cheery butterfly cards.. the enamel dots really finish off the cards beautifully! :-)
    Hope you are keeping well
    Love and hugs, Sue B xx
