PSA Essentials & Basic Grey Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to a very special day of hopping with PSA Essentials and Basic Grey!  I’ve been a huge Basic Grey fan for years and I'm really looking forward to seeing all the great inspiration today!  If you came from Rae Barthel‘s blog then you’re right on track.  If not, you’ll want to start here so you don’t miss out on anything!

My project today is using the Picadilly collection from Basic Grey and the Country Home and Frenchie Peel &Stick Packs from PSA Essentials

The Picadilly collection really says Spring to me; I love the fresh, bright colors.  I used the 6x6 paper pack for this card; the perfect size for card makers!  For the center image I used the sheep stamp included in the Country Home pack and added Liquid Applique for his wool.  If you heat it with an embossing gun rather than let it air dry, it puffs up just like this!

I added a bright orange bow and this beautiful glazed brad from the Picadilly collection.  There is so much detail in just these little brads alone!

Now, inside my card is a little surprise.  This is a thank you card, after all, so I've included a little something special. 

To make the gift card easier to remove, I created a notch using a circle punch.  But, to make it extra special, I first stamped the cardstock using the circle border stamp from the Frenchie pack and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I love the extra touch this adds.
