Sorry for the late post today. As we enter the second (and last) week of our vacation we’re trying to get to everything we missed in the first week (along with some relaxation of course). We started off the day today with a breakfast at Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary resort where we saw Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto. From there we headed to the Magic Kingdom where we spent pretty much the entire day (9 am to 5 pm). We’re back at our resort now to rest for a few hours until the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show here at the Polynesian Resort. All in all, we’re having an absolutely magical time, I’m so thankful we have another 3 more days before we leave.
Anyways, on to today’s card. This card is similar to the Blossom Birthday Card I posted last week except that I kept it monochromatic and left more white space. I started by stamping the flower from Stampin’ Up!’s Fruit and Flowers stamp set in Concord Crush Classic Ink onto my Whisper White cardstock. At the time I had forgotten that Concord Crush was retired. You could easily use Elegant Eggplant Classic ink which would simply be a slightly deeper purple. Once I had stamped my white cardstock, I wrapped Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon across it, tied a bow out of a second piece of ribbon and stuck it to the first with a mini glue dot.
For my greeting I first die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Apothecary Accents Framelits and then stamped my greeting using the Friendly Phrases stamp set in black ink. I then added the Wisteria Designer Printed Brads at the top and bottom of the label before sticking it to the bottom right of my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Whisper White cardstock was then matted onto a piece of Concord Crush Cardstock and then onto a Wisteria Wonder card front.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card.
