In the pink again

Where does all this pink keep coming from? I used to hate pink! But it goes so well with Simply Said and I still have Alison’s stamp set, so why not?

I had lots of fun with punches for this card – LOVE that Scallop Circle Punch! I stamped two different Circle of Friendship stamps, then punched “Just for you” out the centre of one of them and layered it on top of the “Thinking of you” stamp. This way you can mix and match the sayings to suit the occasion.

The card design is inspired by the sample on p39 of the UK Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalogue 2007-2008. That’s what the catalogue is for – it’s packed with samples which you can adapt to fit your supplies.

Simply Said (p39), Circle of Friendship (p62)
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1¼” circle punch, 1” circle punch, ½” circle punch (all p80)
