I had to chuckle when I read Sue G.’s comment about it being the rainy season in Florida. When we booked our trip to Disney we had NO idea that this was the case. I’m sure you can imagine our dismay when we checked the weather forecast and saw “chance of showers” just about every day. Overall though it’s actually worked out pretty well. For the most part the rain doesn’t last long, even when it’s a torrential downpour, and some of the time it’s a pretty light rain and the sun is still shining. There has been an advantage too as when it rains I’m the afternoon, it seems to cool things down a bit. We ended up with rain on Sunday when we arrived, on Monday, and on Tuesday. There was no rain at all on Wednesday and I actually found myself wishing for at least a little as the temperature was 94 degrees Fahrenheit in the shade.
Anyways, onto today’s card. This is another simple card that features Stampin’ Up!’s new Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set. I absolutely love the big flower in the stamp set. I randomly stamped the large blossom in Cherry Cobbler Classic ink making sure to leave enough white space in between the flowers that I would have room to stamp the smaller cluster of flowers. I stamped the small cluster of three flowers in Lucky Limeade Classic ink in the white spaces. I matted my white cardstock onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then onto a Crumb Cake card. Although I probably could have layered it onto a Lucky Limeade card, the combination of all red and green feel too Christmas- like.
The greeting (from Stampin’ Up!’s new Sassy Salutations stamp set) was stamped onto a die cut label ( cut from Stampin’ Up!’s Apothecary Accents Framelits) in black ink. I used the new Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to pierce a border around the inside of the label. Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Printed Brads acted as a finishing touch on either side of the label, which was popped up using Dimensionals.
This type of a card would be a great workshop card because it’s fast and offers a variety of different upsells. The only change I’d make for a workshop would be to substitute the brads for rhinestones to make it more cost effective.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card.
