Urban Wishes

Earlier this month I took a little weekend trip with some stamping friends up to Webb Lake, WI. This is an annual thing and I always have a great time because I can enjoy the inspirational mojo of the other ladies who are there and at the same time accomplish a lot of my own stuff. This year was no exception. I came home with lots of cards completed along with a whole slew of projects that I managed to whip up while I was there. This particular card is one of those "on-the-spot" creations. I'll be posting a bunch of other stuff from the same weekend in a bit, but for now, here's the info for this one:
Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Short & Sweet
CS / Paper: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Olive textured (Amer. Crafts), Whisper White, Urban Garden DP
Ink: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss

  1. For the card, cut a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 from Baja Breeze and fold in half.
  2. Layer a 4-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Urban Garden designer paper on the front.
  3. Cut a 1 inch by 5-1/2 in strip of olive textured cs and adhere it to the lower part of the card.
