A “Pear” of Fruity Cards – by Jill Hilliard

It’s Wednesday morning already and Jill is with us today, showcasing our NEW Fruit of the Spirit release of stamps. She created two cards that are both so fun and both are relatively flat for mailing, too.

Let’s start with the “pear” card.

Lovely beyond measure.

I’m one to get giddy when things work out perfectly, and how about that paper – is it not the perfect paper for this card!!! It’s from a pad by Authentique called Gracious.

I love how classy and beautiful this card is.

And doesn’t this look like fruit sitting on a country gingham tablecloth – again it makes me giddy with delight!

I adore the simplicity of both these cards. The white allows the beautifully colored fruit to shine. Jill used Copics to color the fruit on both cards and she used her electronic cutting machine to cut them out, but they are very easy to fussy cut using scissors with all the simple lines.

You can find Jill’s post on her blog here.
