Frilly Feminie card

I do love to make cards that are soft and feminine looking.  They're my very favorite kind of card to make, and you can probably tell from what I post the most of.  At least I think that's what I mostly post.  Who knows, I'm not going to go back and count.  How about you just take my word for it, ok?  Today's card is going to be one of the projects for next week's class.  It has several different elements that all together scream girlie-girl card.  Hope you like it!

Stamps:  A Round Array
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Primrose Pink
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla cardstock with Tea For Two Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Big Shot with Lacy Brocade TIEF, 5/8" Flower Trim, Primrose Petals Stitched Ribbon, 7/8" and 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punches, Sponge, and Dimensionals
Ok, does it get very much more frou-frou than this?  I don't think so.  I am in love with the Flower Trim accents.  Just cut off as many flowers as you need and you're good to go.  To coordinate more with the flowers on the DSP, I lightly squished the flowers onto the Primrose Petals ink pad.  This gives color to the edges of the flowers, but still keeps them mostly the soft Vanilla color so they have a vintage feel.

I lightly sponged the embossed Vanilla cardstock with Crumb Cake ink to highlight the embossed design.   This also softened the harsh Vanilla cardstock to a more vintage look.

Stampin' Up! is having a Spring Special of the A Round Array stamp set and the coordinating 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch right now.  They will both be in the catalog coming out in another few weeks (I can hardly wait to see it!!!), but you can get them now bundled together for a 15% discount.  If you're interested, contact me or click on the right to order.  The set is really versatile and I've found a few things to use it on already!

Ok, I need to get back to getting cards ready for next week's classes.  Thanks for stopping in today to see what's new.  Hope you were inspired to get out your stamps and play.   Have a great day and get creative - it makes you happy!!  Sharon
