Backyard Basics - Stamp Set and Die
My friend, Kris, is celebrating her birthday today and I hope she has time to do something very special.  This is the card I sent to her.  The main idea for it did come from Pinterest, but I changed it up to make it my own.
The card is a top fold 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" card.  I embossed only a portion of the front of the card with the Swiss Dots folder.  Two scored lines were added just below the embossing.  I found the sentiment in the Stampin' Up! "Blooming With Kindness" stamp set and it fit nicely in the area at the bottom of the card.
The floral design was one I had stamped and cut out with the matching die several weeks ago and I wanted to get it used.  It was colored with Pretty in Pink and Garden Green markers.  The white layer that I added it to was cut with one of the dies in the Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs.  The banner was made from a piece of the Pretty in Pink dp.
If anyone is interested in purchasing the Backyard Basics Stamp Set and Die Bundle, I do happen to have an extra set.  Just let me know if you would be interested.  The set has six great stamps and six matching dies.  To be honest when I first saw it I didn't think I wanted it............but I am really glad I have it!!!
Thank you for stopping by!  Your comments are always appreciated!

I really like the partial embossing and score lines. Makes it so much easier to add a sentiment. I'd like to buy the back yard basics set, but I'm outta work and unemployment ran out...I'd have to pay you with good wishes. LOL!
