Some cards for Sage


As I mentioned yesterday, I'm away in Minneapolis this weekend
for the Women of Faith Conference.
Sage wasn't very excited about me leaving her with the boys for the weekend,
so I made her a set of cards so that she could open one each evening.
I also wrote out her blessing in there for each night.

Here are the cards I made her, using this week's MIM at Papertrey Ink: Gold-Dipped Die-cuts
For each card, I used a sentiment from Slide Frame (I thought the tiny sentiments looked so cute!)
and leaves cut with the leaf from Nuts For You dies from American Crafts patterned paper
that I dipped in gold embossing powder and heated.


Here I stamped the squirrel from Nuts For You and water coloured him in.
 

Here, I water coloured the fox from Hello, Foxy.


And one last one with the kitty from Cat's Meow.

I love how they are all playing in the patterned paper, gold dipped leaves!

Thanks for looking!

OMGosh, these are adorable, Leigh! I LOVE the little critters and LOVE the CAS design. You are right, those little sentiments look SO cute. And seriously in love with the gold dipped leaves. You are so cute to make these for little Sage while you are gone. She is going to really love them!

What a wonderful way to let Sage know you're thinking of her while you're on your trip! She'll adore the little critters, playing in their gold-embossed leaves! Sweet, thoughtful, heart-warming! You're an awesome mom!
