Story of Elegance 

Good morning on this glorious day!  Happy Tuesday to you and thanks for stopping by!

Today I was fresh out of ideas for what to create, so I decided to use our beautiful catalog for inspiration.  There are so many gorgeous creations in the catalog; before I opened the catalog and spend another hour trying to decide, I told myself I would go with the first card I found.

Here’s what I found on Page 5 of our Annual Catalog.  No need to go any further.

A Closer Look


Here’s how I created this card:

Step 1:   Emboss a 2 5/8″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock using the  Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  Adhere the panel to a Thick Whisper White A2 card base.

Step 2: Layer a 2 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Misty Moonlight In Color Designer Series paper onto a 2 3/8″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Misty Moonlight card stock.  Adhere both  to the embossed panel and adhere horizontally  to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Step 3: Stamp 3 flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink.

Step 4:  Color the 3 flowers with Light Flirty Flamingo  and Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.

Step 5: Use the Regular Postage Stamp punch to Punch the 3 flowers and adhere to the card panel.

Step 6: Stamp the sentiment on the lower portion of the card beneath the panel.

Step 7: Add 3 Misty Moonlight In Color Enamel dots.
