Tonight I am sharing a few samples made with Gina's Card Kit set, Botanicals - it arrived at a time when I needed to make 3 sympathy cards. What a perfect set for cards that can be more difficult for so many.
I kept them all similar in look by using the same cardstock, patterned paper, and embellishments. The layout of each is very similar but each is just a tad different whether it's landscape, portrait or square. Sentiment on front of card is from Spring Florals, the sentiment from Botanicals, "so sorry, thoughts and prayers are with you" is stamped inside.

And finally, I've had one of these turnabouts for some time and have been thinking about what to put into the empty panel ever since. The flower image from this set and this inspirational sentiment from Inside and Out were exactly what I had been looking for to complete the empty panel. The other small label holders were changed out to match the patterned paper from my inspirational panel.
Paper was cut to fit, stamped, distressed and randomly stitched before sliding into the slot. Button/ribbon/thread combo and butterfly were added afterward to complete the panel.
