Hi stamping friends, Isn't this stinkin' cute? I think so. I used the Reason to Smile and if babies aren't a reason to smile I don't know what is. Can you believe this is a floral set that I made the flower card out of the other day. I know, I looked at the set and thought "oh that center of the flower will make a perfect polka dot" and I love polka dots. I wanted to make it pastel for the baby cards. I need a few right now. I used the framelits dies and edgelits to make this darling card. I got my color coach and came up with this color combo of Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede. Oh so sweet! Rainy today and I overslept so I hope my day goes good. HMMM.
Did you notice the paper piercing around the Apothecary Accent? That is the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack that can go around a lot of our dies and punches. It is on page 181 of the Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog and is so cute. I could have pierced around the shape of the tag too but I didn't do that and I see I should have. I would do that if I make another card like this and I think it would be cute in blues and greens too. The edge of the card is the Large Edgelit and then I used the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to texture the background. Wow, I just received a call on my cell from a high school friend of mine. How sweet! She wondered if I am going to our class reunion and I told her no because I will be heading home to Davenport IA after convention. That will be so nice as I haven't been home since last November.
