First off, thank you to all of you who sent sweet comments on my blog, on facebook, and via email about my visit with Kathie Lee And Hoda. Jim and I changed our flight Wednesday night to an earlier one on Thursday and beat the snow that hit NY! Jim stopped into my craft room to visit last night and said…oh gosh, this is a mess! So… I spent some time last night tidying up and had to take a break. I ended up making a really quick Christmas card with a Hallmark movie playing in the background- thanks to Angela for reminding me this is the season to watch!
I had set aside the SU Wishing You Well stamp set while I was tidying up to remind me to make some sympathy and get well cards this weekend.
I actually forgot that sweet wreath was in that set…and that there was a Christmas sentiment! I did stamp the gorgeous bow first directly on the wreath and it looked nice but then I just wanted to see how hard it would be to fussy cut since I really wanted to showcase that beautiful bow. I found out it was super easy to do- even for a non-fussy cutter like me! The Paper Snips are essential for a sharp cut that glides around the paper:)
I just fell in love with the delicate little bow in the SU Wishing You Well stamp set.
Has that ever happened to you? You are drawn to the set for one little image?
Of course, then I fall in love with all the other images!
I adore the lightly drawn sentiments- that stamp beautifully!
I thought the set paired well the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.
As you can see I pulled the colors from the DSP- Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, and Grapefruit Grove.
Although you can find Grapefruit Grove pearls in the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls,
I just colored my pearls with the Light Calypso Coral Alcohol Based Stampin’ Blends.
The base of my tent card is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side.
The DSP is a 4″ square. The white panel is 2-3/4″ x 4 bordered by a 3″ x 4-1/4″ Cajun Craze Panel.
