From me to you ...

Today I have a special card to share for two reasons.  First, this was for my best friend, Leslie, for her 50th birthday and second, one of my favorite Pals, Ann at The Stampin Schach, is doing something new on her blog that I wanted to participate in.  She is showcasing a card once a week that can be made in 45 minutes or less.  The best part of Ann's post are that she gives you all the measurements for that perfect look.   


This is my take on it and it took me no more than 30 minutes to make ...

Stamps:  Fabulous Florets
Paper:  White, Sahara Sand, Black
Ink:  Black, Versamark
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, pearls, ribbon (non-SU), stickers (non- SU), pretty petals embossing folder, stamp-a-ma-jig
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.
  • I purchased Over the Hill stickers and used those on the outside and inside of the card.
  • The flower was stamped in black and then reinked with Versamark, stamped and covered with clear embossing folder.
As always, thanks for stopping by and ...

Have a great day,
Pam~

Very elegant in black and white. I wish I could make a card in 30 minutes or less. It takes me that long just to figure out my colors ... lol. I will have to check out Ann's blog. Thanks for the info. Pam. I love the pearls along the ribbon.
