OK, so I’m part of a team of ladies that gets together with many other fine ladies at our local library to create cards together. This is the one that I came up for my last time in the library! I wanted a card that wasn’t specific to any occasion, a JUST BECAUSE card, because those come in handy, don’t they? 🙂 The “for you” hidden within the Birthday Blooms Clear Mount Stamp Set is perfect for those times. I love the scriptiness of the “for” combined with the standard box “YOU.” Beautiful! Don’t you agree?
I’m such a fan of stamping on top of Designer Series Paper. I think it gives such nice depth to your card and is super easy to come together!
A little hint for you should you choose to create this: Stamp your big flower first in a light color (for this card, I chose Pool Party). Then, stamp your saying in a coordinating, but darker color next (I chose Island Indigo). Then attach your Typeset Designer Series paper to the card base. Finally, punch the sides of the card out with a 1/2″ circle punch. Just make sure to only slide the punch in halfway and line up with the top of the card so it’ll line up on both sides. 🙂 Fun little touch, right?
Then you can go crazy with your embellishments!
