To Think Of You Is To Smile is the perfect greeting for any occasion greeting card! I would love to get a card like this on a special occasion or just a random day!!! Wouldn’t you?!?!
Also, I’m loving the color combination of Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party. Isn’t it perfect together?
I started with a Melon Mambo card base and adhered a strip of Lemon Lime Twist Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper across it. IMPORTANT TIP: Only add adhesive on the outside edges of the designer paper since the middle will be die cut. Next, I used the Eastern Medallion Framelits to die cut out that fabulous image. I placed the framelit in the middle of the designer paper strip. After die cutting, I snips the edges of the designer paper to take it off the design and reveal the Melon Mambo. This is why it is easier if there isn’t adhesive in the middle! 🙂
Now it is time for the greeting! Using the Layering Circles Framelits, I die cut out one in Whisper White and one in Lemon Lime Twist. Next, I stamped the circle and greeting from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set onto the Whisper White circle and layered them together. Bundle the Stamp Set and Framelits together and save 10%! Using the Gold Metallic Thread, I wrapped it around my fingers about 10-15 times. Then I pulled the loops off my fingers, twisted into a figure 8, and placed them on the back of the greeting. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I secured the thread exactly where I wanted it to flare out! Then I peeled off the backing and place it in the center of my card!
For the final step, I placed a piece of Pool Party cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) on the inside front panel of the card. Be sure to only add adhesive around the edges of the cardstock so there isn’t any adhesive peaking through the die cut image.
