My new favorite stamp set is from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale-a-Bration brochure - Avant Garden. I love it and I love flowers so this for me was an easy sell. I also love that this stamp set is not too "busy". It's easy and elegant. I kept the design of this card simple - as these days I adore simple and clean designs. I used the Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock and the "dots" from Avant Garden. I stamped off once to get a lighter color. I stamped the flowers with Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo. Finally, I used Pear Pizzazz for the stems/leaves and Chocolate Chip for the stamen. The card base is Whisper White and the stamped portion of the card is mounted on Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Sweet and Simple, right?!?
I chose the greeting from the Avant Garden Stamp Set as well and used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the greeting. My upline in Stampin' Up has started a new Birthday Card campaign with the intention of sending birthday cards to all of the demonstrators beneath her. After I pondered it, I deemed it relatively brilliant. No matter what other occasions occur, birthdays are an occasion that mostly everyone celebrates so you can't go wrong there. I have decided that I am going to include more birthday card designs for my classes in 2017.
I hope you find this simple card inspirational. The Avant Garden stamp set can be found in the 2017 Sale-a-Bration brochure (view brochure here) and is available for FREE with required minimum purchase (shop here) through March 31, 2017.
