Clearly for you!
Hi stampers! I have a quick little card for you today that looks much like my last card. I really liked the look of the stamping on the First Edition DSP so I thought I’d do something else with it. So, I stamped the berry image from the Clearly For You stamp set (found in the occasion’s mini) over the botanical themed DSP in pear pizzazz. I also stamped the main focal image in pear, I just love that flourished background. And then I added my birds from the same set in soft suede. Now, I don’t LOVE this card but I do like it and it also has a couple of fun little details on it, let me show you:
I added the crochet trim which I love and then I added the little vintage tag which I stamped with the You’re A Gem set….that I didn’t think I needed…turns out I didJ That ever happen to you? And here’s a little behind the scenes tip: I put a glue dot on the back of the tag after I tied it on to make sure it stays just where I want it. Finally, I tied it all together with that cute little rosette! Isn’t it just adorable? They are great, they come in a pack with three different sizes and the BEST part is that you can color them with a marker or dye them with an ink refill to match any color you want! To keep things simple here though, I just left it in it’s natural vanilla color. I think it adds just the right touch! Hope you like today’s card, thanks for stopping by and make sure to say hi in the comments before you click away!
