Today's hop is being dedicated to our own Sean Fetterman who is currently in the hospital recovering from a heart attack. I haven't known Sean for that long...since I've joined the Stamp TV team...but in that short time he has amazed me with his kindness, willingness to help out anyone, and unending encouragement! I have never heard him say a negative thing about anyone or anything! Sean, I hope you recover quickly...and know that we are all praying for you! For more information, head on over to Gina's blog. If you would like to send a card to Sean, here is the address you can send them to (Gina will package them all up and send them on to him)...

I created a card gift set using the new Spring Parade patterned paper (and coordinating cardstock)! I started by making a box to hold the 6 cards (and matching envelopes). I used my Silhouette and Gina K cardstock. Just a quick note about Gina's cardstock... I have found my NEW favorite cardstock! Wow! It is such high quality, heavyweight cardstock...and I just love how it folds!
For the top, I made two bows using some of the ribbon included in the Stamp TV Kit. I glued them together and then added a matching flower.
Here's a side view of the box. I added some more ribbon (included in the Kit) around the sides of the box to dress it up a bit.
I kept the design of the cards the same, but changed colors.
I used some strips of the Spring Parade patterned paper for a pop of color.
I made two of each color, for a total of 6 cards. I stamped the flower on 6 envelopes and included those in the box as well. I kept the cards "blank" so that the recipient can use them for any occasion.
