Early Bird Tea Time Greeting Cards with Ginny

Hello there crafty friends and BoBunny fans! I'm really excited to share my first project with  Early Bird. This collection is full of sweet florals, vintagy images, and loads of cut aparts.  This time of year I really think we need spring inspired collections to ease the transition between seasons. Winter is over thankfully but the Summer holidays are still not quite here yet.

I've created 2 cards with a similar but different look since I had the collection out and all the fun embellishments.

I feel like this is going to be my favorite color combination this year. Soft blues and greens look so dreamy when layered up and mixed with florals.

I do have so much fun pulling out the patterns papers and making just the right combinations.

Incorporating the Noteworthy elements and stickers means you can layer to your hearts content.

Adding a border of coordinating cardstock matting helps to keep the patterns from looking busy.

Spacers between the layers adds loads of depth and also gives the cards a nice weighty feel.

These cards are basically the same but with a slightly different base layer, and patterned papers. Might as well make two if you have the collections out right?

To add a little different style to this card I turned it on it's side and added 2 bows topped with twine and Double Dot Brads,

Don't forget you can add spacers to the backs of the CardStock Stickers too so they will be a dimensional accent.

To ensure that more of the beautiful doily cut from crisp white cardstock and the Mandala die was visible I clipped it in half so I could push them to the edges of the card ensuring that they won't be covered by the following layers.

I love to add a little bling to my projects and the Double Dot Jewels are always a perfect match!
