Floral Romance

Good Morning everyone!  There's more rain in the forecast for me...how about you?  Whatever it is...STAY SAFE!!

Today's card is a beautiful card that I sent to a team member as part of a card exchange.  The theme was green...and I think it is BEAUTIFUL!!



To create this card I used Whisper White Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The designer paper is Floral Romance and it is GORGEOUS! The sentiment is from the Part of My Story stamp set which is a Sale-A-Bration item you can choose FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and tax).  I stamped the sentiment on to a stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.  The strip of Whisper White underneath the sentiment is from the Dear Doily Framelits (LOVE 'EM) and last, I added some Linen Thread and Old Olive Linen Thread!

I really LOVE how it turned out and I hope the gal I sent it to does too!


I hope you have a wonderful day and that you find a bit of time to CREATE! I love hearing what you think about my cards and if you're trying them..either here or on my Facebook page!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by today!  CIAO!!.

Dear Doily - Sympathy Card

Good Morning everyone! I hope Friday treats you well!  Mine is FABULOUS! My husband took the day off! Everyone is back in power so I have him to myself today...well to myself and our two kiddos who are still at home! I'm thrilled! It's been a long 10 days!  

I have one more of the cards from my February classes to share with you today! 


I wasn't sure about the Dear Doily Bundle, but now that I've created with it I LOVE it!  

The card base is a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The first mat is Granite Gray, is 4" X 5 1/4" and is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  The doilies are cut with the Doily Builder Thinlit dies, from Whisper White and Coastal Cabana cardstock. They cut out wonderfully...even the intricate details, and I didn't even use wax paper! The sentiment, which is from the Dear Doily stamp set, is stamped in Granite Gray ink and punched with the 2" circle punch. The doilies are all attached with dimensionals.  I tied a bow using Linen Thread and placed it behind the smaller doilies.  Last, I added a few Epoxy Droplets to bling it up a bit!  I LOVE how it turned out. this would make a nice sympathy card. Sadly, we need those on occasion.  

That's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a TERRIFIC weekend!!
