You will qualify for my Free Shipping deal, too! Note: Your order will not be processed with Stampin' Up! until June 1.
I'm just beaming about this set. You can make a group of them and give them as a gift, too. Colors were inspired by this week's Splitcoast Color Challenge 167 (Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Certainly Celery). TIP: I now list all the Splitcoast challenges on the right side of my blog.
For the first note card (above), I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig (tutorial here) to line up the block image over the flower. I then stamped it in Blue Bayou Ink. A Five Petal Punch snapped out a Soft Sky Textured Card Stock flower for below the die cut image and I added some Certainly Celery Card Stock as a backdrop. A jumbo brad from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware Kit (exclusively Occasions Mini 2008) jazzed up the center.
The "for you" sentiment was inked in Certainly Celery and stamped on Whisper White. A small oval punch crops out the perfect fit and it was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then added a luscious label holder with a couple of brads, also from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware Kit (exclusively Occasions Mini 2008). A snippet of Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon accentuates the left side. A few stamps of the small Fresh Cuts Flower in Certainly Celery creates a coordinated envelope flap.
The second card was just as charming and easy. After removing the die cut area of the flower, I added some Blue Bayou Textured Card Stock behind it. I punched out a 5 Petal Flower in Certainly Celery and zipped it through my Cuttlebug with a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I added a single flower from the Boho Flower Punch in Blue Bayou Textured Card Stock and topped it all off with a Circle Rhinestone (Ice Collection).
The border consists of repeated stamps of the vine image in Soft Sky. "Thank You" is in Blue Bayou and was also aligned using my Stamp-a-ma-jig. My, my, we do like things exact, don't we? Three Circle Rhinestones (the smallest size from the Ice Collection) dress up the top corner and some Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon dolls up the left side. Again, I opted to coordinate the envelope flap (Soft Sky).
