Well, this is one of those stamp sets that I KNEW if I didn't get before the Mini Occasions ended, I'd regret it. Guess what? I am JUST now using it!! But I DO love it and think it's a perfect image for this card. I hope you agree and that it inspires you to dig out some stamps you haven't used yet! :-)
If you like it too, just wait.....we never know what stamps they will include from the Mini's into the BIG new Idea Book and Catalog due out in July!
You'll find that all the other items used in the card design are still available to order! So, don't fret. :)
This is the Designer Series Paper I used...."First Edition Newsprint"
This month is your last chance to get this paper as it's on the Retiring List!!!
This is the NEW embossing folder, from the Summer Mini, called "Flower Garden."
I used this embossing folder on the birdcage image to give it that 'quilted' look. It's called "Square Lattice"
Here's the card!
