Clearly Kindness

It might be a record for me these days - three posts in as many days.
You're impressed, I can tell.

You probably won't be as impressed when you realize that I made this card for my June classes. Yeah, I'm a little behind in sharing.
This card was done with the Reason to Smile stamp set that was the special offer in June. So, you can look at this one of two ways - you now have a fresh idea for that super cute stamp set, or you have a fresh idea for a card that you can substitute an equally cute stamp set.
Either way, I think you'll like this design.

I used Baja Breeze cardstock for the base and trimmed it short once I scored it in half. I used the Scalloped Edge Border Punch across the folded flap and stamped the small flower in Baja Breeze Ink.
The embossed cardstock strip is Pink Pirouette that was run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper folder. I used the 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon in Early Espresso for the wrap.

What makes this card cool is the two front panel layers. The under layer is Early Espresso cardstock that was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.
The top layer is a Window Sheet cut to size to fit the Early Espresso cardstock (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
I stamped the images using White Staz-On ink. The greeting is from the From My Heart stamp set as is the inside sentiment.

Here's a look at the inside:

Just simply stamped in Early Espresso with some added Baja Breeze flowers.
This color combo really made me smile and I especially liked it with these stamp images.

So, I'm off and running today - I have 85 wedding invitations to finish for Emma's skating coach and then I need to get working on my 120 swap cards for Founder's Circle that's coming up next week!
Yikes! Next Week!!
Guess I'd better get busy -
Happy stampin',
