Sweet Sorbet for Easter

The Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper available for one more week (Sale-A-Bration) is so cheerful, so spring-like. I think it's perfect for Easter—or any special occasion. And Basic Black is a great back drop for most of the prints in the pack.

I paired this print with Crisp Cantaloupe and Basic Black. The only stamping is the greeting. The three pieces of twine are from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, obviously designed to coordinate with the dsp. The pack includes 10 yards each Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit Twine as well as one sheet printed adhesive-backed cork (58 pieces).

I punched the greeting with the Modern Label punch and then punched an identical shape from  Basic Black card stock. I then cut the black piece in half and attached them behind the greeting so they extend a little past the Whisper White. The card was made extra easy by using the Banners Framelits Dies.

I have gotten to where I utilize my card stock to the utmost. For example, I cut the Basic Black banner layer from the piece that frames the designer paper, being careful to center it so I still had an edge to attach and to show behind the dsp.
