Springy-Time Cards

Hi All!
I have another couple of cards to share today! First, I have a "Happy Easter" card that I used another heat-embossed background on- like yesterday's card.
I scored the white cardstock into a grid-type pattern and filled each box with a stamp. I don't think that you can see the glitter in this picture, but each stamp has some white glitter on it. I stamped the sentiment on top of the heat-embossed background, so it's a little ... un-solid. Since it's stamped in silver, I think it looks alright not being solid, but you live and learn and I may not do that style again.

The second card has a coordinating envelope that I stamped a similar design on with the same ink. I accidentally stamped the "for you" portion a little crooked, so I added the rhinestone to cover that up :) When I mess up an area, I try to come up with a creative way to disguise the mistake and salvage the card. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so the little mistakes annoy me.... but I'm working on making imperfectly perfect cards through the process. :)

Here's two more digital layouts that I made with the free downloads from Shabby Princess Design website. I can't wait to print these out and see if they're as nice printed as on the computer!

Thanks for checkin' these out!!
