Good morning all. The weekend is here! I hope you are all doing some fun stuff. I’m going to a Chinese New Year party later on tonight, that should be fun! This year marks my Grandmother’s 94th Birthday! She lives in Pennsylvania and I have fond memories of all of the time I spent there as a child. She loves flowers and had some of the nicest ones in her gardens that I have ever seen. There used to be poppies all along the fence. That’s what inspired the color combination for her card. I’m loving the new Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog along with the Elementary Elegance Stamp Set where the sentiment and bird come from. You can get these items and many more for FREE with every $50 you spend form the Occasions Mini or Idea Book & Catalog. The beautiful flower is from the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and is punched out with the Blossom Punch, both items can be found in the 2012 Occasions Mini. I stamped it in Poppy Parade and backed it with some Poppy Parade Card Stock punched out with the same punch. I have wanted to get the Family Reunion Stamp Set from the Idea Book & Catalog for a while and I’m glad that I did. It’s nice to be able to put Grandma on the card along with Happy Birthday. I punched it out with the Oval Punch and mounted it on Poppy Parade Card Stock punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. The frame around the sentiment was a great tip from Mary Fish (www.stampinpretty.com). I cut out the label with the Framelits Label Collection Dies and then used the Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that fits perfectly inside the label. It gives it great detail and was super easy. A little bit of 1/2″ Stitched Poly Ribbon in Poppy Parade (thanks Nina Dee!) across the top of the Very Vanilla Card Stock that was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder give a nice separation from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper. I love the way the card came out and hope you enjoyed it too. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
