Stenciled Smooches

Hey stampers!

Just popping by today with a quick card for you all.
I designed this last week for my stamp classes this month and it's been a big hit so far!
It uses the sweet stencil from the Summer Smooches promotion that's going on this month. The stencil is one of two items that is only available this month, so be sure to add it on when you are ordering your retired stamp sets!

Let's take a look at the card:

I used Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and folded in half for my card base. Using the outside piece of the stencil, I took a Sponge Dauber and sponged Crumb Cake ink on the card front through the stencil opening to create this sweet shadowed background.

The side border piece is made with Daffodil Delight cardstock layered with a piece of the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. I wrapped a short piece of Daffodil Delight Seam Binding around the layers before adhering them to the card front.

Next, I used a new piece of seam binding and created a bow which was attached to the wrap with Mini Glue Dots. The greeting is from the Friendly Phrases stamp set and is stamped with Lucky Limeade on Very Vanilla cardstock. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that was punched with the Scalloped Oval Punch. The little Daffodil Delight button from the Brights collection was added with a Mini Glue Dot and the whole thing was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

I used a small portion of the stencil on the inside as well to add some interest there.

Here's a few of the pieces I used for this project:
#125583 Daffodil Delight Seam Binding $6.95

#125409 Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper $10.95

#125626 Summer Smooches Stencil $7.95 (April ONLY!)

Have a fantastic day stampers! I hope you get to stamp something fun!!
