Good Saturday morning to you all. I hope that the weather is as nice as it is here by you. I’m looking forward to a drive in the convertible later! Today’s card is for my good friend Maureen’s birthday. I have know Maureen for 25 years, that’s a long time! I started with a base of Calypso Coral and ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. I used the smaller flowers from the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set (which has become a favorite of mine of late), stamped them in Basic Black, and outlined them in Calypso Coral using a Stampin’ Write Marker. My Paper Snips have become one of my favorite accessories as you can see from all of my fussy cutting lately, which is what I did with the flowers. I stamped the leaves and stems image in Lucky Limeade and backed it with Lucky Limeade Card Stock. It’s mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and so are the flowers. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Wood Mount Stamp Set and is stamped in Lucky Limeade. I used the new Bitty Banners Framelits Dies* to cut out the greeting and the backed it with another piece of Lucky Limeade. I like the simplicity of this card and my friend loved it. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
