Happy Sunday, y’all! Hope you’re having a good weekend so far! Wanted to take just a moment to send out my thoughts and prayers to President Carter and his family. This is a hard time – no matter how expected or how strong your faith is that this is just a waypoint. I am glad they opted for Hospice – it’s such a wonderful organization – for the patient AND their family! Fair winds and following seas, Mr. President. 🙏🏻
Okay – on to the real reason you meandered over here today! I have a pretty birthday card for you today – it’s got some geometric shapes from the Something Fancy bundle and some sweet florals from the Two-Tone Floral set. And – a sneak peek at one of the three new Basics 3D Embossing Folders (coming on 1 March as an Online Exclusive!). Take a look-see:
The soft palette is from the Global Design Project color challenge this week.
And the layout is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.
I started by embossing a piece of Highland Heather cardstock in one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Then I used my Whisper White ink pad to “scrape” along the raised areas to soften it a bit. Since the white ink takes a little bit of time to dry, I set it aside and worked on the other elements!
I stamped the small detailed floral image from Two-Tone Floral in Fresh Freesia five times on a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock – and cut them all out with the hexagon die in the Something Fancy set. While I had the die out, I cut out five hexagons from the leafy design in the Vellum Basics Specialty Paper.
When the embossed panel was dry, I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Basic White mat to make the card front.
Then, I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vellum hexagons – and then adhered the Fresh Freesia die cuts over the top. Note: you want to think ahead on this part – and only use the Liquid Glue on the parts of the Vellum hexagons that won’t show! 🙂
I cut a Basic White tag using the Something Fancy die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped two small flowers and two flower clusters in Blushing Bride. Two-Tone Flora is a two-step stamp set – and I used full-strength Blushing Bride to stamp the detailed portion and stamped-off-once for the fill. I did the same with the small flower cluster. Use the Two-Tone Flora dies to cut out the flowers.
Then I adhered the two small flowers and one cluster to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I stamped the Something Fancy sentiment in Highland Heather on a piece of Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the label die from Something Fancy. Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used some Dimensionals to adhere the final flower cluster – letting it overlap the sentiment.
I tied a simple bow from two lengths of Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot. Then I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels – a small one to each flower center in the clusters – and a few on the tag – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped the flower cluster image in two corners of a Basic White panel – using full-strength and stamped-off-once Blushing Bride ink.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic White mat and into the Highland Heather card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the small Two-Tone Flora flower on the front…
…and the Two-Tone Flora flower cluster on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think this pretty-in-purple-and-pink birthday card is so sweet, don’t you? The Two-Tone Flora set creates such pretty flowers – but…it needs a sentiment set and the Something Fancy sentiments are lovely. AND – it has the added benefit of the tags and labels in the bundled die set. Our new Online Exclusive products – coming on 1 March – will feature the trio of embossing folders in the Basics 3D Embossing Folder pack – plus many MORE new goodies! So – you’re going to want to be watching for those! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix
We went to Tractor Supply yesterday!
I mean – that’s not all that exciting unless…you’re Finn!
He got some treats – sniffed some sniffs – and…got his heart bruised a little! 🙁
He was settled down – for a second (he sort of was suffering from spring-butt, if you know what I mean!?) – and I heard a strange noise.
No – it wasn’t the soda machine that I heard – although HE did – AND felt the air blowing out of it!
It was HIM!
He was whining!
I looked around and saw two little girls with their mom.
He was trying to get them to come over and pet him! Or get ME to let him up so he could go to THEM!
Their mom didn’t look like she was really open to such an encounter, so…we didn’t go anywhere.
He was pretty sad! 🙁
But – he got about five little bones in the course of our time there AND a lot of petttings from NOT-tiny humans so…I think he’ll be okay.
He does LOVE those tiny humans, though. Like…this one!
Bed-head. The struggle is real! I wish I looked that cute with COMBED hair, let alone bed-head! 🥰🥰🥰🥰
LOVE everything in your post today!
