This feminine birthday card uses several “sneak peek” items from the new Idea Book & Catalog, coming out July 1st!
Let’s start with the background stamp set…it’s called “Delicate Doilies” and features just that – a variety of doily-like designs. I stamped the doilies onto Melon Mambo base with Versamark. The sentiment is from the new Hostess Set called “Happiest Birthday Wishes”, which was stamped in Melon Mambo and punched with the Modern Label punch. I know I’ve mentioned this set previously – but I just love the versatility of this 11 piece set. Definitely a go-to set for me!
The sentiment is layered over a piece of from Specialty Designer Series Paper pack called “Flirtatious”. This paper coordinates SO well with the Delicate Doilies set. It has Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and the brand-new IN Color Wisteria Wonder.
Down the left side is a piece punched out with the new Lace Ribbon Border punch. Love, love, love this punch!! I wove some 1/4″ Whisper White grosgrain ribbon into it and adorned it (and the center of some of the doilies on the paper) with Rhinestone Jewels.
The inside was stamped with another sentiment from “Happiest Birthday Wishes” in Basic Grey. Another Delicate Doily stamp in Melon Mambo dresses up the inside….
The Whisper White envelope also got dressed up, as you can see!
I hope you are as excited about the new catalog items as I am! The new catalog is GORGEOUS! I will have more sneak peeks in the coming days, so keep checking back!!
