I decided to use soft pastel colors for the first card. I have to admit, I CASED this card from Betsy Veldman. She made something similar to this and I just fell in love. Vintage cream cardstock and swiss dots embossing folder was used for the base and I added a strip of bitty dots paper in lemon tart and cut the scallop using the small scallop die from PTI. The sentiment was stamped in smokey shadow.
I used the Pretty Pastels and Bitty Dots paper in lemon tart to die cut all of these lovely packages. On some of the packages I added a little strip of vintage cream cardstock using decorative edged scissors. I found in my stash some pastel pearls (I think I got them at Michael's) and I know that this would add a nice accent. Chamomile die ink was used to distress the edges a bit.
For the second card I went with more bold bright colors. The patterned paper is from Scenic Route that I've had in my stash for a while. It's had to see in the photo but I embossed lines done the middle of each color using my Scor Pal.
To create the packages I used new leaf, orange zest, hawaiian shores, hibiscus burst, spring moss and pure poppy cardstock. I added some glitter to the bows for a little added punch. I attached everything using foam pop dots.
