Botanicals for You

Today's card uses the big bold sentiment "Just for You" from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Botanicals for You. I love this stamp set for several reasons. The first is the sentiment that takes centre stage on any card. The second is the sentiments that accompany it. They can be used for many occasions. And then there are the cute little flowers. They look fantastic grouped together as I have done in my card below.

If you follow me on Instagram you may recognise the front of this card. Earlier today I thought I would make a start on this card before I headed off to work. But as I was running out of time and rushing, I made a bit of a mess with the embossing of the white flowers.


I came back to it this evening and decided that it was not a total right off. So I just stamped more of the little flowers. Fussy cut them and popped  them on the card front over the dodgy embossing. And if I hadn't have told you, you would be none the wiser....lol.

The reason I tell you this is so that you can have another look at the little errors you make, then find a way to make it better. There are very few times that a card is totally ruined by a mistake. A mistake is just an opportunity to change your design.

Instead of using plain pink card stock for the card front, I used the reverse side of the Perfectly Artistic DSP. This is another great Sale-A-Bration item that you can get for FREE with a $90 order. One side of this paper has a marbled look and the reverse has a water colour look. So very different to each other, but both very lovely.

Don't forget that some Sale-A-Bration items will retire this weekend. So make sure you grab the ones you want before they disappear.
