I needed a Sympathy Card to post out this week, so I dug up one of the rare cards that I saved. I’ve cased (copied & shared everything) from Sarah Willis I’m not even sure where I come across it or when I come across it. It is quiet an old card as it uses a stamp set from last year’s SAB.
Thanks so much Sarah for the inspiration!
The Framed Tulips EF is not one that I have used a lot, so thought it gave me the perfect opportunity to dig it out of the box & dust it down. I quite like the result of the EF but believe me it was hard not to use my favourite Perfect Polka Dots. In saying that, if you look closely, I managed to get it on here anyhow.

I found this tutorial for a Gift Card Holder over at Created by You, which is owned by the very talented Sharon Field. It looked so interesting & lovely that I thought I would give it a go. I’ve used all my new products from SAB.
Of course, I adjusted mine a little so that it could fit our standard envelopes in Australia. since creating this one, I’ve played around with it a bit & did a couple of different things to it, but more about that in the next couple days.
I wanted to use the matching ribbons that come in SAB but didn’t look any good on the Lucky Limeade, so back to the drawing board for me.

I found another challenge site on Sunday while I was surfing for some information, completely unrelated to craft or stamping, as you do!
It is only a new site – Retro Sketches – but boy have they got some followers. The sketch had just been posted & didn’t look too bad, so thought I would attempt it with some new products from SAB.
Measurements – Base Card – Lucky Limeade – 11 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 30cm x 10.5cm Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm Layer 2 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 2 5/8″ or 14cm x 6.5cm Layer 3 – Soft Suede – 2 1/4″ x 2″ or 5.5cm x 5cm Layer 4 – DSP – 2 1/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 5cm x 4.5cm
I stamped 2 flower images onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Pool Party Ink. Am loving this colour! The whole piece was run through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder – Square Lattice & adhered to the card.
Envelope & Inside Card…
Prior to adhering the DSP to the Base Card, I adhered a piece of Ribbon down the centre & tucked the ends under.
The small piece of DSP was adhered to the piece of Soft Suede & adhered to the top of the larger piece of DSP with Snail Adhesive.
I stamped the sentiment with Soft Suede Ink, punched out with the Curly Label Punch. I cut a piece of Pool Party scrap Cardstock with the same punch, cut in half & adhered to the top & bottom of my greeting. The whole piece was adhered to the smaller piece of DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I tied a bow & adhered to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.
I adhered 2 pearls to the centre of the small flowers.
I am loving these new products & for the life of me don’t know why I haevn’t used them previously. Maybe, it had something to do with not being too keen on them, but boy has that changed!
