I am a little embarrassed to say that this is the first time I have used this lovely Hostess set, Morning Meadow. I have had it since this catalogue launched and I really love it, but for some reason just hadn’t used it. Well, anyway, I found an old sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday and thought that it fitted perfectly with this stamp set.
I inked the floral image using Pistachio Pudding ink and stamped it onto Whisper White card, making sure to stamp several times before re-inking to fill the space before attaching the stamped piece to Primrose Petals card. I attached a piece of the gorgeous Pistachio Pudding 3/8″ Ribbon to a length of Smoky Slate 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon and then wrapped it around the left hand edge of the stamped piece. I made sure to stretch the Pistachio Pudding Ribbon when I attached it to the Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon so that it would sit nicely on the card. The image panel is attached to scored and folded Baked Brown Sugar card. I stamped the frame image onto Whisper White card using Baked Brown Sugar ink and stamped happy birthday in the centre using Primrose Petals ink. I cut the image using an Oval Framelit and then traced around the outside of the same framelit on Primrose Petals card and cut it out. I wanted a smaller frame around the image than I would have if I used the next size up Oval Framelit. (Does that make sense?). I attached the greeting to the front of the card using dimensionals on each end so that it would sit over the ribbon properly.
Inside the card I stamped the bird image using Primrose Petals ink and added ribbon as I did on the front of the card.
I really love this card and I don’t know why I waited so long to use this set.
