Taylored Expressions May 20th Key Ingredients

It's time for another Key Ingredients Subscription Release at Taylored Expressions! You can read more about the Key Ingredient Subscriptions on THIS POST.

This month, Taylor challenged the Baker's Dozen to create versatile all-occasion cards without a sentiment on the front. We were required to add stitching, either faux or real. Faux stitching is my favorite! :) I made a set of four all-occasion cards along with a little tote to hold them. What card set would be complete without a holder of some sort, right?

For the first card, I used an image from the A Year of Sweets 2 set.

The second card uses an image from the Fresh Flowers set. The image was stamped on the inside of the card and a window was punched on the front and framed with a scallop circle.

The third card uses an image from the Downtown Diva set.

The last card uses an image from the Sweet Celebration set. I thought it would be perfect for any kind of party.

For the tote, I used a piece of 8.5"x11 cardstock and scored along the 11" sides at 4.5" from each end. Then I scored along the 8.5" sides at 1.25" from each end. I attached the handle with brads and added some ribbon across the front of the tote.

All four cards AND the tote were created using the May 20th Key Ingredients Subscription Kit and I still have TONS left in my kit! The other great thing is that everything coordinates perfectly! I didn't really have to think about anything but which stamps I wanted to use or the layouts of the cards. Be sure and check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen created for the challenge:

Ana Wohlfahrt
