Winnie & Walter Release Day (4 of 4)

Hi folks! We're at the last day of the Winnie & Walter release, and I know you are going to fall in love with the calligraphy in the Evelin T Designs sets like I did. This first card features one of the sentiments, again with a nice mix of typography and calligraphy. The hanging birdhouse and twig is watercolored, with a few sequins added for good measure.

Here's a tag I cut with the Essentials: Noelle Cutaways. The to/from are also in this set. The florals on this tag are from yesterday's In Bloom: Hollie's Festive Florals. Love how the pieces of the flower, leaf, stem, berries etc. are all different stamps so you can easily work a bunch of colors in. Under the tag I layered In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaway. The package looked a little plain without it, so I was excited when this wreath added a little more color, width and interest. So easy to do.

This last card uses Scenery: The Leaf Effect a couple different times for the sponged leaves, which have been masked off the sides. The scalloped panel that the leaves are on is another great die in the Essentials: Noelle Cutaway set. I went with a solid pink for the flower (from In Bloom: Anna's Flora) since there was so much going on in the background. The gold sentiment is another one of Evelin T Designs ... both sets are Christmas themed, but as both cards in this post show, you can easily use them for non-holiday (even summer!) cards.
