We finally made it home after a month-long visit to Florida. The place we went to is right on the gulf beach. Every night has beautiful sunsets. The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous. It rained one time for about 15 minutes and then cleared right up. My granddaughter was here last week and we went shelling. It was weird because there were very few shells that day but we did manage to get a few Sand Dollars. They were all over the beach.
Don’t worry. We didn’t take them all (although it may look like we did).
I started this card using a Basic White card base. I cut out a piece of Fresh Freesia card stock using the Scalloped Contour Dies and embossed it using the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder (retired). I also cut out a piece of Basic White card stock using a smaller die from the same set. I backed that up with a 3″ x 4″ piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock.
I decided to pull out the stamp set called Pansy Patch along with the coordinating Pansy dies to make the rest of the card. You can save 10% if you purchase them in a bundle. I think this stamp set is so pretty. It is a two-step stamp set which means it takes two or more stamps to make an image. The larger Pansies actually take four different stamps. The colors I used for the flowers were Fresh Freesia, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight. I used Soft Succulent for the leaves. Then I cut them out using the Pansy dies. I adhered them to the card using Multipurpose Glue. I like using this adhesive because it gives you some time to move things around if you don’t like it at first.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink.
This is absolutely lovely, Susan. I love all the purples and scallops! Beautiful shells!!
