Today’s card share is a card I made for a friend of my mom’s.  She called and wanted a special card that she could send to her sisters.  This is what I came up with –

It is a pocket card with an insert that you pull out – in the picture I have one in the pocket and one shown out of the pocket.  I used the Garden from the Heart stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog – it is a pretty set.  Here is the list of supplies that I used:

  • Garden from the Heart stamp set
  • Wonderful Favorites stamp set
  • Kraft card stock: Kraft, Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
  • Jet Black StazOn ink
  • Stampin’ Write Markers: Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Creamy Carmel
  • Linen Thread
  • Curly Label Punch
  • Scallop Trim Border Punch
  • Corner Rounder Punch
  • Color Spritzer
  • Stamp-a-ma-Jig
  • Medium Whisper White Envelope

Spring is coming – the trees are getting little blossoms – I can just see the first white flowers on our Bradford Pear trees – they are pretty but they stink.  It has still been fairly cool here so still no bird nests but I have seen some activity around the houses this morning.  The Bluebirds have been inside both house #2 and house #3 today.  The Chick-a-dees have been hanging around too and I saw a Tufted Titmouse looking inside house #1.  So maybe soon they will be busy building nests.
