This one is done with the Simply Soft Set from Stampin’ Up! it’s one of the Hostess Sets and one of my favorites. I hope you like it.

I wanted this to be really soft looking so colored the image in with light shades of pink onto Vanilla Card Stock. I don’t think you can get softer than that.

  • The Card Base is Crumb Cake and cut to 4 1/4 x 11
  • The Vanilla Mat is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. It’s 4 x 5 1/4
  • I then added a mat from the Mocha Morning Specialty Paper cut to 2 1/2 x 4
  • I have a tall Vertical Mat in Crumb Cake and embossed with the Edgelits. It measures 1 1/2 x 4
  • I also wrapped a piece of Pink Satin Ribbon around it and secured with tape on the back
  • The image piece is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and the image is stamped with Black Stazon and colored with my aqua painter and crayons.
  • I added a Double Loop Bow to Top it off.

Well that’s it for today. Make sure to visit Stamping 411 and see what it’s all about…..maybe even play along. It’s totally fun!!!!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hi Lee! This is a gorgeous card! I think it looks like a pretty mother's day card. I love the layers and embossing. That double bow is outstanding and really highlights the flower perfectly. I need to try a double bow sometime. You've given me great inspiration to try one now. ; )
