Some friends and I were looking through my stamp stash this week, looking for the "perfect" set for a project. Out popped the set, Priceless. I don't think I've shown off this set for quite some time, and I can't imagine why I've abandoned it to the part of my stash that collects dust!
I'll be making some projects today for my weekend workshops and Priceless will be included in one. But here's a card that I totally CASEd from a card that I received in a swap at last year's Stampin' Up Honolulu Regional Conference. I mean, except for the greeting, which was in a stamp set that's been retired, this is a duplicate of Jan Okino's card (though my compliments to her – she has a much more delicate touch with the sponging than I do!)
The colors for this card are Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. I stamped and cut out the larger flowers, inserted a Silver Brad, and then attached them to the card with Pop Up Glue Dots. Gee, I haven't used them in awhile, either! But they were perfect for this card. I stamped the Butterfly on the card, then on a separate paper scrap. I cut out the image on the scrap and attached that (again with a Pop Up Glue Dot) over the stamped image on the card. That way I didn't have to fuss with cutting out the little antennae.
Measurements are in 1/4" increments: The basic card is covered with a 5-1/2" tall x 4-1/4" wide piece of Perfect Plum Card Stock. The next layer is 5-1/4" x 4" of Pale Plum, then the stamped layer at 5" x 3-3/4".
Let's see – who's birthday is next? If it's yours, I'll be glad to send you the card!
