November Gossamer Blue cards.....

How about some cards for today?  I have a pretty little ensemble that I created using November Gossamer Blue Kits....the Main Add-On Kit, the stamps from the Life Pages Kit and a few more pieces here and there. I like to use a lot of the leftover kit items for card making as it's a good way to use up supplies. These cards are scrappy, layered with lots of goodies and will be a good addition to my card stash.
I started out with layering on some pieces I cut from a 12 x 12 tag sheet.  
Next I added some frames and lovely background papers.
From there I cut strips of words from a 12 x 12 piece of patterned paper, added labels and placed on some embellishments.
I taped all the tags to a scrap piece of paper with Washi tape then typed my card sentiments.  Such a fun way to personalize your sentiments.
Then I just started adhering it all down.  I used gold stitching which I just LOVE for these cards.  I embossed my stamps in gold also.  
I added a small clustering of resin flowers and pretty sticker dots from my stash.
Each card was finished with a piece of the yellow washi tape from the November Main Scrapbook Kit.
All of the sentiment labels were popped up with foam dots.
So pretty and soft & full of little details.  Since these have quite a bit of dimension, I'll probably package them up using some Large White Sacks.

Hope you enjoy!  Coming soon, I'll be sharing the next 10 days of my December Memories album along with all the fun phone apps I plan to use to speed along the photo editing & journaling process.

Beautiful cards, even thought there are layers of diferent papers and cuts the gold stiching and the embelishmentsw keep it simple. The cards are super inspiring and the type written sentiments show the how much you have put in. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
