For my first card I started by making a cardbase and diecutting rectangles from Arches Watercolor paper Satain and then embossed one using the absolutely AMAZING Embossing Folder And Cutting Dies Lemon Tree . The sentiment is from a useful sentiment set called  Sunshine and Smiles set. I used Daniel Smith Watercolors to color the lemons.









For my second card I made a cardbase from cardstock, covered the fron t with blue cardstock I  diecut a rectangle from white cardstock and inked it. I diecut the Earth Earth Wafer Die  from dark blue and gold cardstock. The sentiment is from a super cool stampset called  Around the World. the heart and plane are from that set too. For extra accent I added Ranger's Glossy accent to them.
