Blissful Beauty

If you got here from Betsy's blog, you are on the Paper Trail Blog Hop.  When I played with the Bliss paper set I fall in love, again this month, with new colors and new patterns and a new stamp set called Trelis.  I made a couple of thank you cards for two of my co-workers who organized a fabulous fundraiser spaghetti feed for our 5th graders.  They truly were incredible.  Each card featured different versions/papers/colors of this cute tri-fold card I found on the internet.  There are several patterns for it floating around and I couldn't decide which one/size to use so I just made up my own.  :)  The band/wrap slides off to reveal the message inside.  I hope they like them.

I also made a cupcake gift card holder.  While these take a while to put together they are so much fun!!!  I can't wait to see the reaction when I give this away!  It's a great way to use up some of my retired ribbon.  Just pull up the cherry on top to reveal the card.  Isn't the red wonderful with these soft colors of Bliss?  I'm making more from different papers and colors.  I'll post when I'm done.  :)

This was a fun weekend!!!!

Don't you agree it's a beautiful paper set with it's light and elegant gray, beige, and chocolate?  If you hop over to Karen's blog, you find more incredible inspiration for this beautiful paper.
