Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and either relaxing or doing something fun – whichever suits! To those who have jumped on the affiliate links train – I’ve been told that the FTC is issuing fines to people who are not properly disclosing affiliate links, so it probably would be a good idea to tell your readers that your blog posts contain affiliate links before you list the affiliate links in your posts. I’ve been doing this all along, but have decided that it shouldn’t be one of the first things people see when they read my posts, so I’ve moved it to the bottom of my posts going forward. Cleaner posts with less work = happier me, LOL!
I have a pretty CAS get well card to share this morning that I created for Prickley Pear Stamps which features the Flourish Border stamp set and Stitched Scallop Border die set. These stamp sets are so much fun with those little curves that really add some sassy pizzazz to this card! And I’m so in love with that sentiment font!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with two narrow curved borders each from CutCardStock Basis Light Lime and CutCardStock Royal Sundance Linen Midnight Blue cardstock using the Stitched Scallop Border die set. I stamped a curved row of flowers from the Flourish Border stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on a scrap piece of 80# Solar White cardstock, cut it with dies from the Stitched Scallop Border die set, and colored it with Karin Brushmarkers.
I adhered the stamped border and the narrow curved borders to the bottom front of the card base and stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Catherine Pooler Juniper ink. The finishing touch was adding gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick.
I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Linen Midnight Blue and CutCardStock Basis Light Lime cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Juniper ink and layered the panel on the midnight blue cardstock.
And one more look… love how this card turned out! This is a great stamp set to use for creating cards for a variety of occasions. These flowers – and the sentiment font – just make me happy!
