Wild About Flowers

IMG_7120Today I am sharing a card that I made for a friend of ours and a colleague of  my husband’s. She is retiring, however, she does not like that word. So, this stamp set is perfect to wish her well without making her feel like her journey is over.

I used a Crumb Cake card base and added some speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#130514, p.183 AC). I also added some strips of Washi Tape across the front of the card. Then I cut a Whisper White label with the Lots of Labels Framelits (#138281, p.173 AC) and stamped the image and sentiment from the Wild About Flowers stamp set (#138728, p.74 AC). I added a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim (#134581, p.159 AC), some Linen Thread (# 140199, p.159 AC), and a Crushed Curry Button (#130029, p.161 AC). I attached the label to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.  I also stamped the image on the Crumb Cake envelope to match the card. That always makes it even a bit more special to have a matching envelope, I think.

IMG_7122The inside of the card also has a bit of Gorgeous Grunge speckles and the sentiment from the Wild About Flowers stamp set. A fitting card for a dear friend.

Thanks for looking and Happy Stampin’!
