There are so many fabulous products in the new mini that starts on January 4th. Of course I already pre-ordered most of the stuff, just need to get back into the daily creating mode. I was able to make a couple of cards (late challenge cards) with one of the new sets called Send Me Soaring. A cute kite set--I really didn't think I wanted it but had some hostess benefits left and decided to give it a try. Funny that it is the first set I used out of all the new stuff. Here are the two cards...
Isn't fun how different they both look! The first one is also using a new embossing folder, new designer paper and a new edgelit die. One the second card I used the kites to create the patterned paper for the strips and then again to make the focal flower.
