Taylored Expressions July Sneak Peek

It’s sneak peek time at Taylored Expressions and today I am sharing a card set I made with the new stamp set Bon Voyage. The images in Bon Voyage are so cute. I love to give card sets as gifts and the cute images in the stamp set are just perfect of a set of cards!

Bon Voyage is illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace stamp line. All the new stamps for July are being featured today so to be sure to stop by all the Baker's Dozen Blogs!

How cute are these images!! To create my card set I used black and yellow cardstock and papers from Echo Park Sweet Day.

Each of my images are colored with Copics  and the background is sponged.

The clouds on each card are cut with the Cloud Duo Die.

My border is created with the Wave Border Die.

And I added Doodle Twine in Lady Bug or Beetle Black on each card.
