Spring is generally a riot of color with flowers from every corner of the world. Today I chose to use True Love DSP from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – cuz it’s beautiful and I had a piece already colored on my table :)… sly fox that I am. This was a leftover piece from a previous project and I was determined to use it. The flowers were colored mostly in Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends with a bit of Gorgeous Grape for shadows now & then. The leaves were colored with Old Olive and Garden Green Stampin’ Blends. The centers got touches of Daffodil Delight. This began as a 3″ square and I cut it in equal portions in both directions, then mounted it on a piece of So Saffron Card stock with liquid glue. I wrapped the White Crinkled Seam Binding around and tied a bow, which I secured with a glue dot. I put dimensional on the back and added this to a Basic Black panel.
My card base is a Basic White Thick card stock with the front covered in Subtles 6×6 DSP from the 21-22 Annual Catalog. I adhered the square panel with liquid glue to the front of the card. For the sentiment I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set stamped on a Basic White scrap in Memento Black ink and die cut it with one of the All Dressed Up dies. I put dimensionals on the back andf added it to the front of the card. My final touch was the beautiful Pastel Pearl ~ and the card front was done.
For the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment from the Peaceefgul Moments stamp set in Memento Black ink on a panel of Basic White card stock. I adhered this to a slightly larger panel of So Saffron card stock then into the card ~ and the card was complete.
For the envelope I used the same pattern from the Subtles 6×6 DSP from the 21-22 Annual catalog and adhered it to the envelope flap. I did no further decorating on the envelope.
Take a look at the retiring products ands pick up some really good deals. If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY CURRENT HOST CODE – 63SXY3X6– good April 1- 15 . When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time. If you have questions just let me know. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post. If you would like to be able to order products early from catalogs, join my team now… you may do that here.
