We have a new great-niece named Cadence Ann! Here is the card I made to celebrate her arrival…
I know the “trendy” thing right now is to decorate the inside of cards. What’s funny is that I’ve always done this on cards I send (non-samples). I line them with a neutral like Whisper White, Very Vanilla, etc and put a coordinating image and/or sentiment inside. I also stamp the envelopes, too! To me, this is what a “finished” card means, instead of just a card front. Those little details make it more special!
This card uses the Level 3 Hostess Set called Goody-Goody Gumdrops. This is a really versatile set, with not only cute images, but matching sentiments. You may have seen the card I made that used the ice cream sundae that comes in this set. Adorable!
The card stock is Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery. I used some paper from the new DSP Candy Lane (that is still available until 1/31 as part of the Love You Much bundle posted in the left sidebar.) The image was colored in with a blender pen, then given some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I doodled the string, just to add a little detail. The background was stamped with the flower from this set, in Pink Pirouette (it goes so well with that DSP!) The scallop edge punch finished the bottom (though I think the brand new eyelet punch would have been adorable – but mine doesn’t come until tomorrow and since I have a game tomorrow night, I can’t play with it until at least Tuesday – and I need to get this card sent!)
