Let's Catch Up!

Today, the Avocado Arts Crew Too gals are sharing projects using the June release, Let's Catch Up! I wanted to make a card using the net and envelope since I hadn't inked them up yet. I did some masking and paired them up with the chicken wire frame from Thoughts and Smiles. The heart and trail are from ZipnBy to Say Hi.

Since the card is mostly flat, I made the envelope three layers of yellow cardstock but it's still easy to mail. Not only is this set great for the boys and men in your life but also for saying hi to friends.

If you'd like to purchase any of the sets I used, just click on the graphics. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for more inspiration using Let's Catch Up!

*Sadly, the Pit Crew Too is saying farewell to our dear friend Sav. This is her last post with Avocado Arts and we will miss her dearly! I know I will continue to follow her work no matter where she ends up because she is so talented. We know you are going to achieve star status no matter where you go, Sav!

On July 7th, the Pit Crew Too will be joined by two amazing paper crafters who need no introduction: Julie Masse and Teri Anderson. We are beyond excited!!
