Up in the Air Oval

  Happy weekend!  I hope everyone is doing something fun today.  We just got back from a hike along the James River.  It was pretty cold but it was fun seeing the river rushing past due to the rains of this week.

  I thought this cheerful card might brighten this now cloudy day.  We made this last week at my stamp club.  I wanted to show the ladies the new Cloudy Days embossing folder and the new Oval framelits from the spring catalog.

  Not the best photo but you get the idea!  First we cut the oval out of the center of the Whisper White panel.  Then we embossed with the Cloudy Days folder.  We embossed second so the cloud impressions would be smashed when we cut out the oval.  Then we adhered the cloud panel to the Tempting Turquoise base.

  The balloon from Up, Up and Away was stamped and cut out and popped up with a dimensional.  All the greetings in this set fit into the 1 1/4" scallop circle punch but I used the happy birthday one for this sample.  An Old Olive button and Tangerine Tango ribbon (Sale-a-bration reward!) knot finish off this sweet and simple card.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
