The dies I purchased are a must-have as well (at least I think so) it makes creating cards a cinch and I like that. I added a piece of paper in between the die cuts for a little added interested and I’m really loving the way it turned out.I used a wide variety of Hero Arts dye inks to achieve this pastel color palette and I thought—this card NEEDS gold in it—somehow. So, I thought I’d use the small circle image (from the stamp set) to create this confetti look with gold embossing. I think next time I’m going to try making some of the streamers in gold, too.
When I order stamps from companies I’m always curious to find out how they package there items. So many great companies have such cute packaging—and Mama Elephant was no different. I loved that they used Kraft wrapping and their custom sticker to package this all together. I thought that was super cute.
Even though this stamp set has a create selection of sentiments—I thought I’d mix it up a bit by using the Sentiment Sampler set by Paper Smooches. I love that set; and, I think it’s perfect because it can be used in so many ways and for so many different things. I created this banner by hand using my paper trimmer, scissors, and bone folder.
I’m also super excited to send this card out. I recently got a pen pal, and I’m going to send her this card—it’ll be the first of many and I hope she loves it. She might actually be reading this right now…but I promise all the other cards will be surprises, LOL!
Take care lovely readers and have a great weekend!
