Cards I Don't Keep on Hand . . .

Hi Stampers!

I have ANOTHER confession to make today.  I am TERRIBLE about keeping sympathy cards on hand.  It's just a quirk of mine (alright, stop laughing - I know I have lots of them, thank you very much!!).  However, my Calendar Club ladies requested a sympathy card for this week's Club, so I had to come up with one.  I did a little of my usual CASEing over on Split Coast Stampers but just picked out a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and here's what I ended up with:

 
One of my favorite color combinations is Pool Party and either Chocolate Chip or Early Espresso.  We've done a few cards using EE lately, so this time I went with CC.  Lots of dry embossing here.  I plan to show off the new Magnetic Platform with the Edgelits & Framelits this week, so this card will serve well for that.
 
If you haven't seen the new Magnetic Platform yet, you have GOT to come over and play with it!  No more fooling with Post-It notes to hold those dies down!!  It's the bomb-diggety & one of my FAVORITE new tools.  Give me a call & we'll set aside some time for you to check it out for yourself.  SIL Cheryl & I were SWOONING over it last week when she was here visiting & my order just happened to arrive.  I'm pretty sure she ordered it after seeing mine, lol!!
 
Card recipe:
 
Cardstock:  Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Pool Party, Chocolate Chip
Stamps:  So Sorry, Blooming with Kindness
Accessories:  Labels Collection framelits, Adorning Accents edgelits, Delicate Designs & Adorning Accents embossing folders
 
So, how do you like this card?  Leave me a comment.  I'd love to hear your thoughts!
 
Happy stampin'!

  1. I think it is very tasteful and I love the colors. I wonder if the embossing would look better in the middle of the card so it would be under the middle of the pretty blue, So Sorry.
