I’m so glad it’s Friday…what a discombobulated week this has been! Here in SE Pennsylvania we were hit with our 4th Nor’easter in as many weeks. We only got about 6″ of snow but it sure did disrupt the first week of Spring, not to mention crush the daffodils that were starting to bloom!
So my card share today is all about fresh and pretty with the hopes that Spring will come and stay!
I love making sets of notecards especially when there are so many coordinating products to choose from. Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to coordinate stamps, card stock, designer series paper, inks, ribbons and embellishments. This is what draws most people into the world of Stampin’ Up! I know that’s one of the things I love most about this company. You can always count on lots of style and coordination.
I used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, which features all the 2017-2019 In-Colors. This paper will probably retire at the end of this catalog season on May 31st, so I wanted to use some of it and these cards were the perfect project.
The image, from the Floral Phrases stamp set, is heat embossed in white embossing powder. A few pearls scattered around the image is a pretty detail. I then layered it on a stitched rectangle and wrapped a color coordinated ribbon tied in a bow around it before adhering it to the DSP and card base. I must admit it took me awhile to get the bow just right since it needed to lay flat on the card.
A strip of DSP adds a bit of interest to the inside, which is left blank for a personal note.
Here is each color….
Lemon Lime Twist
I used a coordinating pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP collection to line the envelope. I’m still using the retired Envelope Liner Framelits as I think they are a fabulous, not to mention easy, way to embellish envelopes.
These five notecards and envelopes fit perfectly into one of the Acetate Card Boxes that are a carry over item from the Holiday Catalog. I thought about embellishing the box but once I put the cards in, I thought that the card front was embellishment enough. Note card sets are great to have on hand as hostess gifts or teacher gifts.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and will enjoy a little Spring weather wherever you are…I’ll be looking real hard for some here.
Remember that Sale-a-bration ends next Saturday, March 31st….this year has been one of the best for awesome stamps and accessories. You can see it all HERE.
