If You Want to Be Happy, Be!
This card originally started out as a card for my Brother and his new Wife, but then I changed my mind when I found a saying that was more appropriate for the occasion.
I started with a plain piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it with the French Script background stamp. Then using Elements of Style of stamped the flowers twice. Then I sponged the edges of the card and flowers to give it a more weathered look.
My new found love of the Spellbinders Nestabilities encouraged me to use two different sizes to create the sentiment focus and then finished it all off with a bow and hat pin.
The card that I did end up giving them was made at the last minute as we were going out the door. In fact I almost forgot to photograph it.
Still using the purple tones I die cut one of the Labels Five in Whisper White and used the Muscial Notes stamp to stamp over it. Then using the Labels Five in a smaller size I die cut a hole in the oiginal one on a diagonal and stamped the inside with All Around Quotes. I used the portion that was die cut out and turned it over and used it inside the card with the unstamped side out. Finished the card off with a hat pin and bow.
Hope you enjoy!
