Card Swap Group - 3

Morning!  Today's card was made for Alison as part of a Card Swap group.  I decided to use an old hostess set - Simply Soft - that I've had it for ages and never used.  I cut three identical panels and stamped the flower outline in Always Artichoke.  I then stamped the petal part in Wisteria Wonder.  Considering I couldn't find my stamp positioner, I didn't do a bad job.  Think I may have to invest in a Stamp-a-ma-jig - it would have made my life so much easier!
I mounted the three panels on some Wisteria Wonder card stock which I then mounted on a white, square card.  I used some of the gorgeous Ruffled Ribbon in (WW) around the middle, and finished it with a sentiment from Elementary Elegance (old SAB set) punched out with the Ticket Duo Punch Builder.

I received a lovely email from Alison saying she loved the card.
I'm supposed to be scrap booking today but to be honest I'm not in the mood.  The weather is so depressing and the light is really poor, it makes it more difficult.  I did get up early to do a bit of work with Glossy Accents - you would think that an hour and a half later it would be dry - but no.  Oh well.
Have a good day and take care.

  1. This is lovely, Michelle. Simply Soft is one of my all-time favourite stamp sets, I'm so glad I got it.

  2. You've been so busy Michelle and I love all the gorgeous things you've been making! I love this set too and it looks beautiful made in Wisteria Wonder. I don't know where I'd be without my stamp-a-majig - things would be even messier than usual in The Craft Square Metre! Vicky x

  3. Hi Michelle, love the birthday cake and this card. I really loved this set it is really pretty. Zx
