Sweet blog friends, the fog of Christmas dinner has worn off and we’re turning the corner! Reality hits as it is three days from the beginning of a new year!! I really got caught up in Holiday cards quite late but wait until you see how far ahead of the game I am today – Mothers Day!! I have a soft, feminine card to share – it makes me want to have several to share around. You just know that I could never deny pink so I wallowed in my comfort zone today. In fact, that will be one of my New Year’s resolutions – that it’s okay to make your own heart sing by doing the things you really enjoy!! This past month has found me being very kind to myself – beating myself up has stopped. I’d encourage the same thing for you in the coming year – life is short.
I chose a pink ink and pearls to showcase this sweetly feminine background stamp called Elegant Damask Background from JustRite Papercrafts — it’s truly so stunning that I dare not cover it up! I cut the background using Spellbinders™ Labels Eight which I framed with Spellbinders™ Decorative Labels Eight. The sentiment from the Hugs and Kisses Sentiments set spans the card horizontally framed by Spellbinders™ French Frills. I do like depth on my cards so I cut tiny pieces of foam tape to lift up the frame made with Decorative Labels Eight. Lastly, an easy bow tied with the Bow Maker and embellished with a pearl and crystal and corsage pin make it undoubtedly girly!
By the way, ‘everything’ on the JustRite Papercrafts site is 25% off, just in case you want to get a jump on Valentines Day and Mothers Day or like me, you have a couple of gift cards from the holidays to satisfy your stamping wish list :-)
