Ori Kami Greeting Card Gift Set!

Wow! Can I tell you how cold it has been lately?!! It felt like -20* C with the wind chill today! At least I don't feel guilty about staying in and crafting ;) I did actually take my girls skating today, inside at an arena - and it was a lot warmer in there than outside.

I thought I'd share a new stamp set I got over the holidays - just in time to make a couple last minute gift sets! I thought these origami stamped images from the Altenew Ori Kami set were so awesome - I love finding things that are a little bit different! I paper pieced the stamps and layered them on some card bases covered with patterned papers and 3x4 journaling cards from a cut apart sheet in the Pink Paislee Take Me Away 12x12 paper pad by Paige Evans. The paper is so pretty - I could seriously frame it - and might!

I added sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store and chose one of the pretty sentiments from the Ori Kami stamp set for the inside (shown in the middle photo below). For each envelope I added a coordinating stamped iamge and coloured it in with coloured pencils. I love how that looks on kraft paper!

I made two sets of 4 cards with matching envelopes each and tied them with a pretty ribbon before putting them into a gift bag with some yummy treats!

And here's a photo of my two littles having fun skating this morning!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're staying warm and cozy this weekend!
