Trust Me You're Lovely - Lovely You

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute little encouragement card to share with you for someone that just may need a pick me up. This is an easy card to recreate and doesn't take much time. Besides what's a little time when you are trying to lift someone up. that may be having a bad day.

Lovely You:

For this card I used the Lovely You Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!. This is an older stamp set that came out a year ago or so, but was brought back in this year's Annual Catalog. It's a great set with great sentiments; and I love the mixture of fonts in this set. The cards and other projects you create with the delicate florals, fronds, and flourishes in the Lovely You Stamp Set are sure to be cherished.

For the main part of the card I used a card base made from Soft Succulent Cardstock. I then layered a piece of the Lovely in Linen Designer Series Paper on to the card base but at an angle. I then mirrored the angle with my layer of Basic White Cardstock that has been embossed with the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder. I then added a couple strips of coordinating cardstock (since Stampin' Up! is known for their product coordination) one in Sweet Sorbet Cardstock, and the other in Soft Succulent Cardstock, both of which have been punched with the Banner Pick-a-Punch to create banner ends. The sentiment and small flowers were stamped in Sweet Sorbet Classic Ink onto a piece of Pale Papaya Cardstock that was punched with the Lasting Label Punch before adding it to the card.

I finished off the card by adding a few Basic Pearl Jewels to the center of each flower and a little Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon. Thanks for dropping by today. I hope that you have a wonderful day!
