The set I have focused on today is one that totally escaped me the first look through the catalog.  Then, as usual, I began seeing beautiful cards made with it and I wondered what set it was.  DUH!!!  The one I have made for today is a 4 X 4 card, and could be a birthday or wedding card, or even a gift enclosure card.  I believe this is one of the most versatile sets in the catalog.  Say hello to the Happiest of Days stamp set.


Happiest of Days, 143796



I love this Designer Series Paper!  It is from the Coffee Cafe suite and is called Coffee Break DSP.  I chose this little pattern and went from there for the other colors.  I did the coloring of the gifts with my Stampin’ Write Markers and just added a little rhinestone to the right side bow.  It just really needed some bling since it is shaped like a starburst or pom pom.  And then I added a second rhinestone to the sentiment banner.

This is such a cute card and so quick and easy to make.  I hope you will give these smaller cards a chance.
