I am really happy to share today’s card with you.  It is a quick, but really cute card.  It is also one that you could easily make multiples of and have on hand to add whatever sentiment is needed for the occasion.  My sentiment is a sweet one that I love.


Stampin' Up!, Stitched So Sweetly, Friends Are Like Seashells, In Good Taste, Jackie Beers


I love every layer of this card.  I paired the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper with the Greenery Embossing Folder, and Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The sentiment is from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set.  I think this is such a sweet sentiment.  And I love the font!

The base card is Crumb Cake with a wider than normal border before the Seaside Spray layer.  I am SO going to miss the Seaside Spray!  It is a perfect blue.  The DSP piece has just a touch of the Crumb Cake in it, and that is all it needed.  (There is a similar pieces that has a touch of Misty Moonlight in place of the Crumb Cake!!)

The banner is first cut using the Banner Triple Punch and then embossed with one of the two Greenery Embossing Folders.  These folders are designed for the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine.  But they work perfectly in the regular size as well.  Tip:  I recommend to punch before embossing.  The embossing softens the paper, and that could cause issues getting your perfect banner.

The top layer is the sentiment.  It is stamped onto the Crumb Cake piece and then die cut.  The Stitched So Sweetly Dies are probably my most used ones. I love the rectangles as well as the fun shapes, like this one.  The finishing touch is a simple bow made with the Blue & White twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you like this sweet card and will maybe try this layout.  I got the idea from the Annual Catalog.  There is a card on page 69 in the upper right corner.  You never know where your inspiration will come from.
