Let’s think of Spring today! For this card I used the Spring Floral stamp from Sunshine Designs – so that’s close isn’t it? After all, Spring is suppose to be just around the corner…..

Celebrate – It’s a Surprise Party:
Card dimensions – A7 (7” x 5”)

Materials: CS – (Bazzill); Paper –Accademia (Fabriano); Ink – Black StazOn (Tsukineko); Stamps – Spring Floral, Celebrate Word cube (Sunshine Designs); Punches – 1 ¼”, 1 3/8” circle (SU!), 1/8” hole punch (Fiskars); Buttercup organza ribbon (CTMH), jump ring, foam tape, Tombow markers, waterbrush.

This card was a special order for 40 cards for a Surprise Birthday that was held this weekend. There was also a matching reply card that went out with the cards in the mail – here is a photo of both pieces together.

To make sure that each reply card was the same, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to set both of the partial floral stamps in just the right position. This is a very handy thing to use when you need an image to be in just the right spot every time. Quick and easy with that handy tool!

Until next time, have a great day!

So pretty! I love the fresh feel to this card - just the antidote for a blustery February day. The large card format really suits that image. I'm going to have to experiment a bit more with that size of card. It's fun to work with a larger design space, isn't it. The reply card is beautiful too! I do like the SAMJ, and I always regret it when I don't bother to get it out.....
