Hello everyone and welcome to Friday… three day weekend Friday! Bought to you this week by Memorial Day! I have no definite plans this weekend so I am going to try and get some crafting time in. What are all of you up to this weekend? Today’s card is another sneak peek at items from the upcoming 2012-2013 Catalog. Less than one week from now you can place your orders. 🙂 If anyone needs a catalog, contact me and I’ll send you one. The card base is Summer Starfruit* Card Stock. I ran a piece of Baja Breeze through the Big Shot using the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the top half of the background. The bottom half of the background is a piece of Comfort Café Designer Series Paper**. I love the texture in the design on the paper, it gives it a nice worn look. I covered the seam with some Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon. The greeting and border are from the Memorable Moments Stamp Set** and are stamped in Midnight Muse*. I cut it out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and stamped off the leaves image from the Papaya Collage Stamp Set** in Summer Starfruit*. The flagged pieces are cut out using the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies** in Cajun Craze and adhered to the back of the label and then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The bird, stamped in Soft Suede, and butterflies, stamped in Cajun Craze are also from the Papaya Collage Stamp Set** and are cut out with paper Snips and mounted to the DSP with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two Basic Jewels Pearls on each of the butterflies complete the card. I love the mix of colors in the Comfort Café DSP**, some old ones and some new. I hope that you enjoy today’s card and that you have a great weekend!
