I had an order to make an 18th birthday card for a colleague at work over the weekend but it turned out awful, I wasn't happy with it at all, but I was running out of time so I CASed a card I really liked over on Carols blog, its really beautiful, made with one of the new hostess stamp sets available in the new Idea book and a catalogue.
Recipe: (All Stampin Up unless stated)
Stamps - Whimsical Wings, Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla
Mediums- Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose
Embellishments - Regal Rose 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. Vintage brads
Tools - Paper Cutter and scorer. Eyelet border punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper snips.
Its a gorgeous card, in a gorgeous colour combo - I love it, think I'll be playing with this set a lot now.
