For my first card, I used the new Four Square stamp set, which has a coordinating die collection available too. I love the sweet and tiny sentiments and banners and patterns used in the frame. I heat embossed my frame onto vellum with white embossing powder, and then used the Fabulous Frames die to frame it in.
I stamped my sentiment across the bottom and embossed a portion of it in gold, with Aqua Mist used on the second half of the sentiment. I combined Freckled Fawn washi tape in a variety of colors, and die cut them using the Small Scallop Border die to form a fun border across the center of my card. My sequins are from My Craft Spot.
My candles are stamped in Limeade Ice, Berry Sorbet, and Summer Sunrise, with the flames embossed in gold and filled in with either a Copic or Stickles Diamond glitter. I stamped a portion of my sentiment on a die cut Journal Tab with the second half stamped onto a Double Ended Banner die.
Across the bottom of my card, the Background Basics: Diagonal set was used again and is stamped in Sweet Blush...I love this set used with pastels...so pretty. Paper used on this card is from Echo Park.
Lastly, I used the Wonderful Words - Friends stamp set, with Zing Powder embossing powder, and Pure Poppy ink. I turned to the Best is Yet to Be die collection and some Vintage Cream felt for my tiny flowers, a bit of Freckled Fawn washi, and chipboard from Basic Grey.
I created a focal point for my chipboard silhouette by layering patterned paper and vellum cut using the Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" circle dies. Paper used on this card is from Crate Paper and Glitz Design.
That's it for me. I have a second card using the Life's Music stamp set that is in the works that I'll be showing you very soon...did I mention that I love that set?
