Thinking of You on Lilypad Lake

During our excitement of all the new products in the 2020 Spring Mini, we can’t forget about all the fun products in the Annual Catalog. Today’s card features the stamp set Lilypad Lake on page 150 and the coordinating Lakeside Dies on page 193. I die cut the stamped sailboats and colored them with Stampin’ Write Markers. I decided to die cut the sailboat shapes out of Smoky Slate and offset it to create a shadow. I die cut the Stitched Nested Labels out of the So Saffron layer to allow the Seaside card base to show through. Then I glued the sailboats to a Whisper White piece die cut with the same dies, but one size smaller. I popped that layer up on the Seaside Spray. Just a slightly different way to layer the dies, but creates a nice focal point.  For the sentiment, I die cut it with the banner piece from Lakeside Dies and layered it on top of some Braided Linen Trim with knotted ends so they don’t unravel. A sweet thinking of you card so someone knows I care.

Bountiful CASE

Sometimes I enjoy creating a card from scratch. And sometimes I find myself so inspired by a sample, I simply MUST recreate it. That’s exactly how I felt the first time I spied the adorable note cards on page 120 of the Annual Catalog. I knew I’d have to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) them.  CASE’ing is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s the biggest form of flattery for the person that you’re CASE’ing. Just be sure to give them credit! Anyway, the stamp set Bountiful Border could have very easily flown under my radar if it wasn’t for their adorable “You Can Make It” feature.   Don’t forget the matching envelope liners – gives these adorable cards an extra dose of cuteness!  Love Love Love!
