  • It’s new!  The sentiment I used on the heart (cropped with the Sweetheart Punch) is from Party Pants stamp set, one of the new Sale-A-Bration free gift options.  Read more about Sale-A-Bration . . .

  • Shapes within shapes.  I love the clean look of the heart layered over a circle (2″).  I heat embossed the sentiment for a bold, glossy look with a touch of 3-D!

  • This 5″ x 5″ card could use a custom-sized envelope, yes?  It’s a snap to create one with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board (25% off through Feb. 22) and Neutrals Envelope Paper (the ideal weight).

  3. Patti MacLeith

    Clean and simply cute!

  4. A classic Mary Fish card….from the moment I saw your work, I knew that I needed to be a PAL – This is so clean and classic – LOVE IT!

  5. Oh Ms. Mary, I think of you more than you’ll ever know. I sometimes wonder if you can feel the love the Pals send your way. =)

  6. An adorable card, Mary! I LOVE the color choice. My favorite part is the heart with the sentiment!

  7. Sweet, simple and a beautiful color combination.

  8. Michel Quiinno

    Such a sweet card, Mary! Bermuda is one of my favorites!

  9. Mary,
    You make the greatest video’s. I thank you for taking the effort for making such a well done and professional web site with all kinds of goidies and links. I was away from your site for so long…but now looking at it again. Thank you.

  10. Hi Mary,

    Your card is so bright and fresh and pretty and I appreciate your good tips!

    I’m thinking this is NOT your Mojo Card, because it does not say. Sorry but I don’t know where to find it to comment there.

  11. Such a sweet card, Mary! The sentiment is sweet and fits perfectly in that heart. Love it!

  12. Ginger Toivonen

    Such a clean and yet vibrant card. The whisper white border on the strip just makes the whole card pop. Top that with with a sweet Baker’s Twine bow and it just makes for a sweet card.

  13. Fun sentiment to go with that DSP, Mary!

  14. I love all of the new tea stuff – great pattern on your paper~! Showcased perfectly with just white!

  15. Ooooh, MsMary,that is so perfect, the color and the layout, so neat, I had thought not to get that dsp but I better love the colors on it , not so much the cups , tfs, and inspiring me to GET it , lol
    Hugs Frenchie

  16. Love this card. It doesn’t hurt anything that Bermuda Bay is one of my favorite colors. You just have that magic touch:)

  17. Thanks you for such sweet comments. I’m going to bet both of you (Kadie & Maria) are enjoying coffee right now. I’m having a cup of Lavazza Espresso (my current favorite for the Keurig).

  18. Next to Melon Mambo…..Bermuda Bay is one of my favorite SU colors. LOVE how you added your sentiment to the Sweetheart Punch. WELL DONE MY FRIEND!

  19. Love this card in Bermuda Bay, this color looks very tropical to me, perhaps it’s because I’m dreaming of those gorgeous beaches on the Mexican Pacific resorts while we are enduring this long Winter months. Love the coffee theme, I couldn’t function this early without my coffee, beautiful interpretation of the sketch, as always Mary.
    Thank you for sharing.
