Saying Goodbye to Elegant Cheer

Saying Goodbye to Elegant Cheer

If you love to create elegant cards, make sure you have this gorgeous set of six wonderful sentiments in your stamp collection. Elegant Cheer will only be available until June 30!

I started out with the color combination challenge on SCS (hosted by fellow Great Swaps Girl Carolina this week): Breezy Ruby Whispers…. The card base is a 5″ x 10″ piece of Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper folded in half. I stamped the Wild Rose images with Ruby Red and Baja Breeze ink and cut them out. The birthday sentiment was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock that was cut with a new Sizzix die (available July 1st). This scalloped oval is slightly larger than the scallop oval punch and creates a perfect mat.

I embellished with ribbons and a clear rhinestone brad, and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the heart of the flower as a finishing touch. Did you notice that I managed to combine old, discontinuing, current, and brand-new Stampin’ Up! supplies on this simple card?

Thanks for stopping by!
