Stamp and Ink Free Petal Garden, Part 1

The Petal Garden suite on pages 56-57 in the Annual Catalog holds a special place in my heart. It evokes wonderful memories of my Grandma. She loved anything with roses or the scent of roses. I had such a special bond with her. Even as a teenager, I looked forward to spending weekends at her house. She loved the same things I did – homemade facial masks, new recipes, Rummy 500…

I decided to use the Memories and More card pack for all of these cards. The Memories and More card pack contains 72 double-sided printed cardstock in two sizes, as well as die cut embellishments.  They are typically used for scrapbooking, but I love the ease of using them for cards as well. Believe it or not, there was no ink or stamping involved with any of these! I sat down and got into a zone…and ended up with 10 cards. I’m going to share them a couple at a time throughout the next few blog posts. Below are the supplies listed for all 10 cards.

Today’s two cards feature the Old Olive 1/8” Sheer Ribbon, which makes the perfect accent, along with the Pearls. The second card features the Lovely Words Thinlits that die cut beautifully. Two sweet cards that anyone would appreciate receiving.
