Love & Affection

Here's one of my favorite cards that we made at our Simple, Beautiful Card Class lately...

I love the flowers against the bold Night of Navy backdrop!  And that embossing folder.... I just haven't had a chance to play with it as much as I would have liked this year.  I'm sad to say it's retiring at the end of the month (or sooner, if supplies run out before then!).

Read on to learn all about this card.....

We start our card with a Night of Navy card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock that we embossed with one of the Floral Affection Embossing Folders.  I love how the embossed flowers mirror the stamped flowers on this card!

Next, we added a strip of the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom of our card.  This has been one of favorite packs of Designer Series Paper from our current annual catalog - I am really going to miss it when it retires on May 31 (or sooner, if supplies run out before then!).

Then, we did our stamping (using the Love & Affection Stamp Set - this stamp set will retire on May 31).....

-our sentiment in Night of Navy ink
-the leaf in Cucumber Crush ink
-the flowers in Watermelon Wonder and Daffodil Delight ink

We had to cut the flowers out with our Paper Snips (gasp!  there's no framelit for these flowers!!).  Thank goodness our super-sharp, super-precise Paper Snips make cutting detailed images a breeze - and they are a steal at just $10!!

We also added a couple of Pearls to the center of our flowers.  Unfortunately, our Pearls are retiring and already sold out. But, not to worry.... Stampin' Up! is just re-formatting our Pearls and Rhinestones, and they will be available for purchase again on June 1 :).
