It has been a couple of busy weeks for us and will probably continue for a while. As you know, we left the cottage and we are now in Nashville. Then Rob left for a week for a conference in Austin. I spent the week putting our belongings away and setting up my stamp room. Last weekend was my grandson’s (Jackson’s) second birthday. My son and his family live in Montgomery, Alabama so we went there to celebrate. This week my other grandson, Nolan, has no school so he has been spending his time with me (which has been a lot of fun). Then this coming weekend is Nolan’s fifth birthday. I did manage to make a couple of cards in between all of that.
I made this card using the stamp set called Cottage Wreaths. This stamp set is in the July – December Mini Catalog and there is a set of coordinating dies called Country Wreaths. If you use the bundle item number when ordering you can save 10%. I first stamped the wreath in Evening Evergreen Ink and cut it out using the coordinating die. Then I used the Dots & Spots die to cut out the berries and the bow in Real Red card stock. I used the Split Textures dies set to cut out a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of Basic White card stock. This is one of my favorite background dies because it adds so much interest to your card. I layered everything on top of a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Soft Succulent card stock and an Evening Evergreen card base. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink.
Susan this is so soft and pretty. What a great way to use that split die, too!
So pretty, Susan! (I need a nap after hearing all the things that have been happening! And happy birthday to your grandsons! Can’t believe they’re so grown up already.) I love the Split Card Die. Thanks for talking me into it!
