Carnation Blooms

How did it get to be February already! I know, we say that every month but time really does fly by. Hopefully you are surviving the winter (or summer depending on where you are). Spring is not too far off and to help remind you of that the Stampendous Design Team is sharing samples using the wonderful Spring Borders Die Set (DCP1009)



Today I have created a Get Well Soon card using the beautiful Carnations Blooms Stamp (P312) and a "get well soon" wish from Brushed Wishes PCS (SSC1272), but any sentiment could be used for any occasion.  The border is one of my favorites in the Spring Borders set, and, I think, is especially lovely in white or cream. It makes the card a little "fancier" and more delicate.

Step 4:   Adhere the colored image to a 3 1/2" x 5" piece of light green, use foam tape to add to the card front
Step 5:   Adhere the Pink Carnation circle to the large yellow scalloped circle and adhere to the card front
Step 6: Stamp the sentiment from the Brushed Wishes set on white, trim to fit a 1" x 1 3/8" piece of light green, adhere to near the upper left corner of the image

I love the detail in the border die you chose from the set. White cardstock makes it look like you have added lace to the card. Very pretty card!
