Good morning and happy Friday to everyone! I love Friday’s and am looking forward to this weekend. I’ll be in Manhattan tomorrow morning and I’m dog sitting for a friend too. Today’s card is a good example of how changing the color and slightly changing the layout gives you a whole new card. I posted a similar card on Sunday and I really liked the card (I should right?!). I needed a sympathy card and I thought that the card I made would make a good sympathy card, it just needed a few tweaks. I started with a base of Wisteria Wonder. The images are from the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set. I stamped the leaves and stem in Pear Pizzaz on Whisper White Card Stock. The flower is stamped in Basic Black Ink and I used my Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the petals and the cut it out with my Paper Snips. I mounted it to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional along with the the leaves. For the background I ran a piece of Pear Pizzaz Card Stock through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A piece of Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini) is in the middle and then another piece of Pear Pizzaz punched along one edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch makes up the right side. The greeting is stamped in Pear Pizzaz and is from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set (Occasions Mini), it’s backed with some more Pear Pizzaz and adhered to the card with SNAIL. I like the layout and the various background pieces and I’ll see what else I can come up with using something similar. Thank you so much for stopping by and have an awesome Friday! 🙂
