A Card from A Friend

I received this card in the mail from Buffy the other day.  Buffy and I do ribbon shares when a new catalog comes out and she was sending me some ribbon she had purchased.  Whenever Buffy sends me anything, she always include a card.  Not just a card.  She always sends a beautiful card!  The fun thing about about this card is it is a fun fold card.

When you first begin to open it, it looks like this:

Then you open it all the way and it looks like this:

Isn’t that fun?  That is why they call them fun fold cards!

Buffy used the Magnolia Lane Suite to make this card.  I can’t really tell you the order she used but I can tell you about the products.  The stamp set is called Good Morning Magnolia.  This set has matching dies called Magnolia Memory and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The Suite also includes the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous paper (as you can see from her card).  I love how she split it on the side and folded the edges back so you can see both sides of the paper.  Then she added the gorgeous flower and leaves she cut out using the Magnolia Memory dies.

Another fun thing Buffy did with this card is to use the new Shimmer White Stampin Emboss Powder on the sentiment.  This embossing powder has flecks of glitter in it so it sparkles and shines.  I love it!

On the inside of the card, Buffy stamped the large Magnolia flower and a couple of the smaller ones and colored them using her Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Blends.

Another great part of this whole surprise was she used a Post-It Note to write inside the card so I could peel it off and use the card again.  It is a great way to recycle cards!

Thank you, Buffy for your beautiful card AND the gorgeous ribbon!

Product List

Good Morning Magnolia

There are so many beautiful products in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019/2020 Annual Catalog that I can’t decide which one I love best.  One of the Suites that is on the top of my list is Magnolia Lane Suite.  Everything in this Suite is gorgeous.  The stamp set is called Good Morning Magnolia and the matching dies are Magnolia Memory (you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle).  The Suite also has beautiful Designer Series Paper called Magnolia Lane, Memories & More cardiac, gorgeous ribbon and embellishments.  One of the nice things Stampin’ Up!® is doing is Bundling all the products in all the Suites together so you can order it all at once with one item number.  It can’t be any easier.

To make this card I first cut a 4.25″ x 5″ piece of the Magnolia Lane DSP using the edge die in the set.  I then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the same die and adhered both pieces onto a piece of Petal Pink cardstock.  I stamped the flower in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it using the Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green Dark and Light Stampin’ Blends.  I adhered that on top of the Designer Series Paper  using Dimensionals.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink.
