Just For You

Hello Stampers!
It seems that most of the time, we need a reason to send a card to a relative, friend or even an acquaintance.  However, it doesn't have to be that way.  That's why today, I am featuring a card that you can send to anyone just to make their day.   Think of the smile you will put on their face, when they receive a card just because you care and were thinking of them.

The stamp sets I used to create to this card are: Petal Palette, So Many Shells and Colorful Seasons.   

The cardstock used is Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.  As a side note, Pink Pirouette is a color that will be retiring from the Stampin' UP! color palette on May 31, 2018, so if you like this color, click on the item in the supply list at the bottom of this post, and you will be taken to my online store.

I embossed the top Smoky Slate layer with the Layering Leaves embossing folder.  The flowers were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with the Stampin' Blends.  I added a touch of the clear Wink of Stella for a little bit of glitter, and then cut out the flowers with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies that coordinates with the Petal Palette stamp set.

I used the 2nd and 3rd largest ovals from the Lots of Labels Framelits to frame and layer the flowers. The Pink Pirouette banner across the front of the card was stamped with one of the flowers from the Petal Palette stamp set in Pink Pirouette classic ink.

The greeting on the front of the card is from the So Many Shells stamp set (also retiring on 5/31/18) and was cut out from the Coffee Cups Framelits.   

The inside sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The flower in the corner was stamped with Pink Pirouette classic ink.
