Happy Monday!!! I hope you are ready to tackle the week. Sometimes Monday can seem like a fresh start, back on routine from the chaos of a weekend, and I’ve got a superwomen attitude! Then there are the weeks that I’m ready to crash from a busy weekend, my to-do list for the week isn’t created so I wander around wondering what to work on first. Those are the days that a simple smile from a stranger at the grocery store, a random text from a friend, or happy mail in the mailbox mean the most!!! Everything is quickly turned around and superwomen comes back! So today, I just want to say, “A friend is thinking of you and you got this!!!”
This is a quick and simple card that can be created in any color scheme and with any designer series paper. Perfect to create and have some on hand all the time!
I started with a Highland Heather card base and added a strip of the Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper (2″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the adorable huggers in Gorgeous Grape Ink. This is from the Artfully Aware Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog!! I love the images and greetings in this set as they are so heartwarming and perfect!
Then I layered this piece onto a layer of Gorgeous Grape. The greeting in the corner was stamped from the Part of My Story Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink. Before adding the focal point, I laid down a strip of the Flax Ribbon. The Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the focal point help to hold the ribbon in place!
Here is another similar version. I created this one portrait rather than landscape and I left off the ribbon. The card uses a different image and greeting but again using the same stamp sets! For this card, I colored in the image using Stampin’ Blends. I did use some of the Gingham Gala Sequins on both for a little extra flare.
