Well today we are digging out of 2 feet of snow thanks to Jonas! But at least it is bright and sunny…really bright with all the white stuff on the ground. I look at it like we are one less snowstorm until Spring!
Today I am entering in two challenges. A sketch challenge for Mojo Monday and a theme challenge for StampInkPaper.
I chose to make a soft feminine birthday card mostly because I simply love the DSP from the Love Blossoms Paper Stack and thought that this particular pattern was so pretty.
The beautiful flower, I think it is a cabbage rose, from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set in the Occasions Catalog takes center stage on this card. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then colored it in using Blushing Bride, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz ink and my blender pen. I also heat embossed the sentiment which is also from this set.
Here is a close up of the flower
The inside sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I think the font coordinates very nicely with the sentiment on the front of the card even though they are from two different sets.
And to pull the whole card together, I just embellished the flap of the envelope with DSP. I just decorate the flaps when using designer series paper that I particularly love for two reasons. First, it can be seen from the outside and before the envelope is torn open and secondly, because I am usually trying to hoard the paper and get a little stingy with it because I don’t want to use it all up.
Thanks very much for taking a peek at my project today. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
