Congrats to my Sis!
Can I just say, I'm loving the new colors and this Garden Gala design paper! Can't wait for it to be available to everyone July 1st! My sister got the job she wanted teaching 2nd grade and I couldn't be happier for her! As a gift, I'm giving her the Teacher's Pet stamp set and some classic ink pads and stampin' spots, along with this card:
and here's the inside:
I really like the way it turned out! Here we go on the details: I used Daffodil delight as my base card, and the Garden Gala design paper for all printed paper. Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Pear Pizazz were also used as card stock and ink. I realized later that actually, I think this paper may use Real Red and not Cherry Cobbler, but it still looks ok to me! Four stamp sets were used: The new Friends Never Fade was used for the flower. I colored it with markers first, stamped it, then colored again with a versamark pen and heat embossed it. Wonderful Favorites was used for the outside greeting, and 'the best is yet to be' is from the Best Yet set. I didn't have any Pear Pizzaz ribbon - yet... but I will! I used some miscellaneous ribbon that came close enough until I get the real thing! There really isn't alot of embellishments on this card - It's pretty simple with lots of layers and color. Funny, that's how I could describe my sister, colorful with lots of layers!
