Last month my dear friend celebrated her birthday. I made a beautiful card for her and then it took me several weeks to mail it. I think I did well this time. When I finally mailed out my siblings b-day and anniversary cards for June it was already September. Yep, I get the actual cards done on time but then have an issue putting them in a mailbox.
So I am pretty sure that by this time my friend has received her card so I am safe to share it with you all. I wanted to make something elegant and soft. I know we both love the In-Colour – Pool Party, so I knew I wanted to use this.
I love the Simply Soft hostess exclusive set so I pulled it out for this card. The image is stamped in Jet Black Staz-On ink and then two-stepped in Pool Party ink. The cardfront is only one piece of cardstock so I had to mask off the bottom of the card to prevent the image from showing on the “other side” of the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon. Once my image was stamped I removed the mask and placed the bottom half of the cardfront in my embossing folder being careful not to allow it to overlap on my image. I ran this through the Big Shot, added my ribbon and attached to my Pool Party card base.
Finally I stamped my sentiment using the retired hostess set – Occassional Quotes.
I hope she loved it.
