Today I had a little bit of a tidy up in my craft room and found some card kits that I really liked and decided to re-work the design using the retiring Hostess stamp set Gift of Love . I stamped the flower image onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. I attached a piece of Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the stamped panel and wrapped the join with Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon (also retiring) and tied a knot. I attached the stamped panel to the scored and folded Tip Top Taupe card. I stamped the greeting from the Vertical Greetings stamp set onto the right hand side of Very Vanilla card using Calypso Coral ink and attached it to the inside of the card. Because the front panel is cut narrower than the back panel of the card, you can see the greeting when the card is closed.
A very simple card, but still very lovely. I really do like this Hostess stamp set and will miss it when the catalogue retires.
