My Favorite Set
Every once in awhile Stampin' Up! comes out with a set that rocks my world...I love all of their products but this set, Always, has that little something extra. I adore the bird and heart, the flowers and swirls (those are, of course, my two favorite stamp elements of all time), the sweet sentiments, and a wee berry branch, shown stamped in the background, are a few of the images included in this set. This is a fairly simple card design, which I created for a small class a few months ago. I love how the branch image makes fantastic background paper. And that swirly heart...yummy! This image also looks great embossed, which I did on this card. The bird works wonderfully well on cards, scrapbook pages, and could even be used as a name place card (wouldn't that be fun for a shower), or even a free standing birdie with paper clip legs...similar to what Erika did here. You can even purchase the image as wall art from SU! As for the "lacy" border of paper at the bottom of the card...I think I'll try to get a tutorial posted in the next few days to show you how to create it...super simple using a SU! punch. :-) Enjoy your weekend!
