Happy New Year! Hope 2023 is off to a great start for all of you!
I wanted to create an extra special card for my neighbor friend who just celebrated her 50th birthday :) Here's what I made:
I used the Art Gallery stamp set and Floral Gallery dies from Stampin' Up in combination with an assortment of Catherine Pooler inks (my favorite!) to create a sweet little flower arrangement. After all...who doesn't love to receive flowers on their birthday?!?!!...especially with the cold, snowy, winter weather we've been having here in the mountains ;)
The white background panel was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder from Stampin' Up. I absolutely LOVE the look of flowers and woodgrain! Just something about it that makes me so very happy :) The tiny tag (from the Gift Bag and Tag set by The Stamp Market) was stamped with a sentiment from Beautiful Bow (Avery Elle). This is an oldie but goodie stamp set---one I still reach for all the time---especially when I need a smaller sentiment.
I hope you like my card for today! It's been ages since I've posted here on the blog. I made LOTS and LOTS of things during the holiday season but just never had a chance to share them here. I also FINALLY opened an Etsy Shop to sell my handmade cards!!! It's going really well so far! I'm learning a lot and having tons of fun with it! You can find the link to my shop in the sidebar of my blog. I'd love for you to check it out and let me know what you think :)
Thanks so much for visiting!!!
Have a fabulous week!
