Summer Love Forever

Stampin up summer love rub-ons

This big, beautiful Summer Love Rub-One (Occassions Mini) sets the stage for this soft and pretty card.  I layered it in seconds on Very Vanilla card stock.  Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss Card stock follow.  A Ticket Corner Punch provides interest on the vanilla and cameo corners.

Stampin up designer bouquet buttons
For an artful touch, I added a Designer Bouquet Button (Kiwi Kiss). 
TIP:  I love slipping a skinny piece of coordinating card stock into button holes.  Normally, I tie them in a knot facing up.  However, I opted to keep this look polished and subtle by "threading" to the back of the button.  TIP:  Buttons hang on with fierce determination when adhered with Mini Glue Dots. 

The Very Vanilla Textured card base measures 4.25 x 5.5 and is scored at the top.  I clipped the bottom corners with a Corner Rounder Punch.  Three Cameo Coral Boho Blossoms Flowers with Vintage Brad centers lend a fun touch.  Stampin' Up!'s Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon is a sleek and shiny detail.

TIP:  The Very Vanilla Medium Envelope gets a 10 second makeover using a Summer Love Rub-On.  Tr?s Chic!
