Sweet Card Kits from Lori M

 Hi, everyone! Hope you are doing well.

I was recently surprised by Lori of Little m's Crafted Mind when she mailed two card kits custom made with her Cricut! Her beautiful kits are my card shares today:


Here is a photo of the kits:


Lori's darling card sample:


I wove pale pink dotted ribbon through this card and added a Sue Wilson die (NUBS). The flowers are "doubled up" and popped up:


In this card, Lori set the lines to a vertical setting. The Spellbinders die is NBUS:



Thank you so much for the play day, Lori!

And thank you, my dear blogging friends, for stopping by.
