April Humble Artists Swap cards...







It seems like eons ago that I made these cards... I would have made them around the end of February, or maybe the beginning of March.   I found this round of cards one of the hardest to do using our guidelines that month.

These were our guidelines for April:
-Use at least one alphabet stamp set
-Have at least three stamped images (can be featured or background)
-Use at least one colour cardstock, from each of 3 different colour palettes...ie Basics; Spring Harmony; Spring Blossom; Summer Carnival; Summer Celebration; Autumn Harvest; Autumn Garden; Winter Classic; or Winter Cozy (you may use only one from either of the two Basics, to count towards your 3!!! Is this clear?)
-Use embossing wet or dry (you may use cuttlebug; sizzix; nestabilities or other means for dry embossing)
-There must be at least 7 layers (this means in one spot, I should be able to count 7 layers....make sense?)
-There must be at least 3 different embellishments (can be ribbon; waxy flax; buttons; brads; flowers.......)
-Use only paper featured in the Spring catalogue
-Card must be no smaller than 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
-Use only CTMH products


I'm going to attempt to remember all the products used, but I'll likely forget something.  LOL

Happy creating!  :)
