Sending Love & Hugs

Happy Friday!  Today, I am sharing a birthday card I made for my cousin.  We grew up together (she is the oldest sibling in her family as I am in mine) but unfortunately we no longer live near each other (insert sad face).
I found a neglected stamp set from the annual catalog to create my special card for her called Sunshine Sayings.

It is difficult to see, but I also used the Delicate Details from the Sale-a-bration catalog around the edges of the Early Espresso cardstock.   This is a fabulous set because it contains a lot of great words. 
Sunshine Sayings Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Here's a larger photo showing the Delicate Details border (click on picture too). Colors are: Peekaboo Peach and Early Espresso. 
To create a softer background, I first stamped Peekaboo Peach onto a piece of scratch paper before stamping onto the Very Vanilla piece.
I used a piece of DSP from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack for the flowers and a small piece at the bottom of the card.  Brown and orange are great together.


STAMPS: Sunshine Says, Delicate Details;
INK: Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach
PAPER: Early  Espresso, Peekaboo Peach and Very Vanilla
ACCESSORIES: Cupcake & Carousels DSP, Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Clear Ink of Stella, Brights Sequins.

  1. Annette, these are two colours I'd not thought to put together, but they look beautiful. This is a lovely card for your cousin.


Thank you for taking the time to post a comment with me! Happy stamping!
