Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Lovely Lavender Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop for our January Lovely Lavender kit.  What a tongue twister!  But we are loving this month's kit and can't wait to show you our ideas for project possibilities with the kit.

January's Lovely Lavender kit includes:
• Makes 8 cards: 4 each of 2 designs with 8 coordinating envelopes
• 4 bonus tags that punch out from the card front
• Precut paper pieces and linen thread
• Coordinating colors: Garden Green, Pretty Peacock, Lost Lagoon, Highland Heather,
Gorgeous Grape (Classic Stampin’ Spot), Berry Burst
*Coordinates with the Perennial Lavender Suite Collection (item 162613)

I used 1 card base and cut it up to make 2 cards today and I have pieces to make a 3rd card later on.  My card bases are Gorgeous Grape cardstock cut 4-1/4" x 11" and then scored at 5-1/2". 

I cut the card base from the kit into 4 inch high sections to remove the scoring line.  Then I cut 2", another 2" and have leftover 1-1/2" pieces as shown below.

My first card base is a z-fold and you just fold the card front back in half on itself, as shown below.  I like to apply my adhesive onto the card front and then my layer can go right into place and there won't be any adhesive exposed.

I stamped the lavender image around the edge of the interior of the card.  I used a Basic White cardstock layer 4-1/8" x 3-1/2" and adhered the layers to it.

This card front has a background of lavender stamped all over in a random pattern.  I flipped the watercolor print on it's side to feature the "love" die cut sentiment.  These prints are gorgeous!
