Moxie Fab World has us snuggling in
"Sweetness & Light"
How inviting is this?
Colors, lamps, florals, edging, lightness that brings a smile.
Did a card project
Project because I need to send this to someone who needs a little joy.
I began with the sentiment from PTI's Happiness in Bloom embossed in green on vellum.
It was bigger when I started, cut around the bottom to highlight the floral paper.
Front panel began as Soft Stone cardstock.
BTW, all products are Papertrey unless noted.
Stamped with Background Basics: Farm & Barn wood grain stamp in Summer Sunrise.
Then embossed with Turning a New Leaf in Snow.
Note: When the stamp didn't cover enough of what I wanted, I masked off pieces and embossed again.
That's a Mat Stack 6 medallion
paper is adhered to a die cut  coaster board, then on top of Stamper's Select White.
I wanted a heftier piece, but not foamed up.
The sentiment needed a flower, so used a stamp from Happiness in Bloom embossed with pink, and Zing Grapefruit.
The side lights are stamp and dies from Lighten Up, shades stamped with Limeaid Ice.
PTI now has a fabulous boxy die for your bulkier cards, something I do often.
One sheet of Lemon Tart Pattern Pack Paper cut twice does the trick.
Used the Mat Stack 6 again with Journaling Lines and Stitched Sentiments.
The doily is one of my favs from Cherry Lynn Designs called Nautical Wheeler
Back of envelope is the center of the die which will seal flap.
Will spray with adhesive when ready to seal.
Head on over to MFW to play!
