I’m back today with more Clearly Besotted peeks :D This Large Tag card combines two sets – the fabulous spotty sentiment is from Sugar and Spice and the other images are part of the Accent it set :D The Accent It set has lots of great images which fit together to give symmetrical patterns – the leaves stamped in Beanstalk with the flower in Sunshine. Initially it was a symmetrical design I was planning on, but then I usually prefer things set to one side, so I stamped the Sugar and Spice sentiment in Fresh Peach offset and balanced it with a few more of the Sunshine flowers. I added a little Star Dust Stickles to the flower centres and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins before threading the tag with Sweetheart twine and mounting on a panel of Lawn Fawn paper cut with a Stitched Rectangle.
I would seriously love a whole paper pad in that great creamy neutral paper :D The panel is mounted on a top folding White card base to finish. I was chatting about this with Laura Bassen when away on our crafty weekend – do you prefer top folding or side folding cards?
The new Clearly Besotted release goes live at 10pm UK time (5pm EST) on April 5th when you will be able to find all the new designs over at Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp.

What a beautiful colour palette – so pretty to look at with the sun shining outside!
I prefer the look of top-folding cards but have sometimes found they aren’t quite as stable as side-folders.
Recently I’ve started using side-fold card blanks that are cut landscape style, best of both worlds I think :)
I too find that top folds on occasion slip but I do love the way they look!
So pretty Debby, I love the soft colours. Personally, I prefer top folding cards, not sure why though!
Okay… wow… and you were crafting with Laura? So green at the moment! She must have been thrilled to be crafting with you!!
Such a pretty delicate card Debby. x
This is simply lovely. Those new images look like a must have. You’re right, that LF paper seems to be something like a basic in everyone’s arsenal. I prefer top folding cards but appear to make more side folding ones.
This is super sweet. Love the pastel colors. I am planning to buy some Clearly Besotted stamps and I just knew I had to browse your blog to know which ones to pick! They are all so good!! :D
mmmm! this is such a yummy card. I love how you stamped all the bits and made those colors work together.
