card #2 in the Simple Stories set

Thanks so much for your kind words about Monday's card!
It is one of my favorites I've ever made and I'm going to use the design again and again with different patterned paper.

So here's card #2 in the set I made.
I took more inspiration from the patterned paper collection I was using.
I found this piece of paper with a pocket and flowers. LOVE IT!
So I made a card based on the bottom left piece of this paper.

Here's the card!!

and the inside says...

I used two fonts on every card in this set.....Bebas and Lobster because those two seemed to closely match what was on the actual paper.
I love to use a plain font and a script font together.

I used my Cameo to cut the pocket but it would be easy to just draw and cut by hand.
I also used my Cameo to cut the flowers and leaves and a couple hand-held hole punches for the centers.
Banner was also made on the Cameo and then I ran it through my printer to add the sentiment.

I love, love, love that text paper in the background. I bought tons of extra of it!

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
