Pool Party Thoughts

A dear friend of mine is recovering from knee surgery (Hi Linda!), and here is one of the cards I made for her. A Hostess Club member saw it and wanted to make it in class so we did it there too. (Hi Wanda!).


I cased this card from another demo, and I apologize that I've lost the info. If this is your card, please let me know so I can give you the credit!

The card is easy, but intricate.


The paper piercing gives is a lot of detail, along with the two embossed designs.


When I saw the original card it was the first time I noticed these flowers - I couldn't figure out where they came from (even thought they might be contraband!!) But no, they are from our Blossom Party Originals Die! So I immediately ordered it, and have been it for flowers ever since. And anyone who knows Linda knows there has to be bling!! ;)


Finally after bling and embossing and paper piercing and die cuts we have a button and ribbon - these are from the Sale-a-bration packs.(Sorry, we can't get them anymore). And because I'm not good at getting twine through little button holes I used my white gel marker. Unless it's magnified - like in this photo - you don't notice it's not real!


 Inside I added two more butterflies with the sentiment.


If you would like to order any of the supplies to make this card you can contact your own demonstrator or if you don't have one and you live in Canada I can order it for you (click here), or you can use my online Stampin' Up! store (click here).

    Your card is just beautiful! I love the way you embossed the white oval, and wonder how you do that without damaging your embossing folder? When I've done this technique, first I would cut & emboss the oval. Then I would place it (die & all) in the folder, run it thru to emboss the dots. The problem is that the die has damaged my folder, so it "marks" anything else from now on! Can you share how you do yours? THX!
