Whether this is your first stop on the hop, or you arrived here from Lisa's blog....Welcome!! and I can't wait to share with you my awesome project with you. You are definitely going to enjoy this hop!
I have quite a few different occasions that I have been invited to host or be a special guest for, which call for some special Thank You cards to prepare and send off. I am in love with the new Suite Sayings coming out in the new Occasions catalog and the country floral images found in the Flowering Fields stamp set that is coming out in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. I love how this simple card turned out....let's take a gander.
- I started with a Tip Top Taupe card base and layered with some Calypso Coral cardstock that was textured using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. To give it some highlights, I sponged some Crumb Cake ink over the raised texture.
- To add a contrasting color, I die cut a circle Hello Honey layer. I inked up one of the six floral images in Early Espresso ink and added more Crumb Cake sponging on the edges.
- The sentiment comes from the Suite Sayings stamp set...inked it up with Tip Top Taupe and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position and line up three different times. I punched the top using the Ornate Tag Topper punch and the bottom using the Triple Banner Punch.its die. Topped it off with some 1/2" Calypso Coral Seam Binding tied in a bow.
Very simple and expresses my sincerest thoughts for some very special people in my life.
