Floral Affection

Happy day to you!

If you're looking for a quick, easy, clean and simple card, look no furter! The Floral Affection embossing folder makes a powerful impression in this layout.

I CASEd this set from fellow Pal, Susan Itell. Her clean and simple style spoke to me with this card.




I'm going to make an admission. I have a bit of a hard time getting rid of retired paper, ink, etc and do my best to use what I have, but then end  up not using current items, so that before I know it, I have lots of other paper that is now retired. It's a vicious cycle! Do you ever do that? This is LAST project I made using retired card stock - Not Quite Navy. My church is holding a huge garage sale and after making this project, I pulled out my box of one gallon zip lock bags along with my retired card stock and filled the bags by color - retired card stock, ribbon, ink and marker. I added a few more household items to my boxes and drove to church and dropped them off. I now don't have to think about retired card stock! I feel so free:)

No matter the color, this layout is beautiful and makes a wonderful gift. I recently met a colleague for lunch and presented her with this set. She loved it! She was so impressed that she asked me to design a gift for the presenters at an upcoming conference she is planning. How fun!



This is a great set to make ahead and have on hand when you need to give a little something to a host or friend.



What makes this card pop?
       Scored lines 1/4" from the edge
       Dimensionals lifting the main panel from the base
       A coordinating stamp on the inside of the card and one one the envelope

Thanks so much for stopping. I'd love to hear about your stash - please share!

Hope your day is a creative one!
