Congrats, times two

My nephew recently got engaged, so I wanted to make a congratulations card for him and his finacée...

I dug through my basket of premade Bloom Builder #3 blooms and found one that I'd made with Pink Paislee patterned paper (a Christmas line!), a PTI button and twine.


I used Lily Bee patterned paper, Papertrey Ink stamps (Think big Favourites #5) and dies (Mat Stack #1, #5 & Bloom Builders #3).

Since I had the left over diecuts from making this card, I decided to use them to make another one right away.


I used the same materials as the first card, as well as some PTI cardstock (fine linen.)

Thanks for looking!

Love the cards. And, what an earth-friendly gal you are, recycling your die cuts for another card. I'll have to remember this trick. Congrats to your nephew.
