Good Friday morning to you all! It is a pretty day today here in the heartland. What a Blessing God has given us. We have had a week of glorious weather, though it is warmer today than I prefer. My prayers go out for all those in the path of Florence…they are not having such a glorious day.
My card today is for a woman’s birthday, so I used the very feminine Southern Serenade stamp set. The sentiments are from At Home With You (front) and Beautiful You on the inside.
I began by stamping the floral bouquet in the Southern Serenade set in StazOn Black on Whisper White. Using my Blender Pen and Blueberry Bushel stamp pad (squeezing the closed pad to get some ink in the lid), I colored in the flowers, then gave them a Daffodil Delight center with my Stampin’ Write Marker. The Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Marker filled in the leaves. I then used the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss the whole panel before cutting it with the largest of the scalloped Layering Ovals Framelits.
This was adhered with Liquid Glue to a Blueberry Bushel oval cut with the largest plain one from Layering Ovals Framelits.
My card base is Blueberry Bushel. A mat of Daffodil Delight was first embossed with the Swirls and Curls Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. I wrapped a length of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around this and Liquid Glued it to the front. Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the Oval to the yellow mat.
I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper white scrap and used my Paper Snips to cut the ends. The Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Marker edged this piece nicely. It is attached over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A small Polka Dot Tulle bow is attached with a Glue Dot.
On the inside I stamped the sentiments from Beautiful You in Blueberry Bushel and flowers from Southern Serenade in StazOn Black in each corner. These were colored the same as the front. This liner was Liquid Glued to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the card base.
For the envelope I used the Swirls and Curls embossing folder to do the flap and stamped the floral image from Southern Serenade in Blueberry Bushel on the front.
