Today’s card is very feminine. I hope you like it as much as I do! The card base was made with Calypso Coral Card Stock (122925) and the front of it was embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (117335). I stamped a panel of Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650) with one of the flower stamps in the new Bordering on Romance Stamp Set (wood-125480; clear-125482) from the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog in Poppy Parade Ink (119782) to make a background. It was then cut along the right side with one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies (125595) and adhered to the card front. A strip of paper from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper Pack, which will be available for FREE with your purchase of $50.00 or more when Sale-a-Bration begins on January 24th, was wrapped with a piece of Calypso Coral Organdy Ribbon (another item that will be available during Sale-a-Bration) and adhered to the left side of the card front. Next, the umbrella from the Rue Des Fleurs Stamp Set (wood-125485; clear-125487) was stamped with Pool Party Ink (122938) on another piece of paper from the Enchantment Pack and cut out (minus the clocks). A bow of Calypso Coral Ribbon was added to the handle of the umbrella and it was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). “Thanks” from the Outlined Occasions Stamp Set (available during Sale-a-Bration) was also stamped in Pool Party Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla Card Stock and the ends of it were cut with the Decorative Label Punch (120907). Remember, just because a label punch is one size doesn’t mean it has to stay one size! I cut a background for it out of Calypso Coral CS using the same method. They were adhered together and to the card front with more Dimensionals. So easy and so pretty!
