The PinkFresh Studio Slimline Argyle Stencil Set, Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and Retired Stampin’ Up! Baked Brown Sugar inks were used to create the fun background for this masculine birthday card.
The large sentiment is from Mama Elephant and was die cut three times in Baked Brown Sugar card stock, glued together then glued to the argyle background. That was layered onto another piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock then added to a piece of SU Thick Whisper White card stock.
A bit of bling was added using the SU Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. They really coordinated well with the background.
The envelope was created using the Simon Says Stamp Slimline Envelope Die and retired DSP.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great week!
I am an early riser and thoroughly enjoy sitting with my coffee out on our lanai each morning. Yesterday morning my iPhone provided me a video of photos from 2020. I loved looking at the 1:10 video and thinking about the events or moments captured in the photos. Sure there are many events that were not captured nor adequately celebrated such as our son’s graduation from Grad School however the milestone was still achieved.
I have been guilty of looking at 2020 and focusing on the challenges we faced and continue to face. However for each of us there are memories worth taking in and reflecting on. So on this eve of the new year I am ready to shift my energy to more productive thinking and actions.
For the last five years I have participated in Ali Edwards’ One Little Word program. I have not always documented it however it has been a wonderful touchpoint throughout this year. My word for 2020 was COURAGE, I had no idea how much I would lean into that word.
My One Little Word for 2021? THRIVE – to grow and prosper. I am looking forward to reflecting and focusing on living this word fully in 2021. If you are interested in the program check out Ali Edwards One Little Word Class.
Cheers to 2021!
A colleague had surgery the week before Christmas. I wanted to send her a card to make her smile. This bright and cheery card did the trick but may have been the painkillers keeping a smile on her face.
The stamp set is Healing Hugs from Simon Says Stamp. Over Black Friday weekend I ordered the die and I am so glad I did. ♥
I used Copic Markers to color the flowers. The centers of the daisies were also accented with Crystal Effects for some shine and texture.
The card base is Daffodil Delight and then layered with retired Pumpkin Pie DSP. A bit of sunshine in the middle of winter.
I hope you are enjoying your long holiday weekend.
Stay safe and healthy.
