Sending Smiles Card

I created this card quite a while ago but couldn't post it until now as I used a stamp set from the new Holiday Expressions catalog and it wasn't live until September 1st. Ah, such is life... I found this gorgeous idea on Pinterest. 

I am loving the Rustic Home Fundamental papers with this woodgrain background - wish I could purchase just that paper in bulk quantities! I have to keep a close eye on every scrap of it so I can use it for my small pieces on different projects. 

The stamp set is called "With You" and it has various flowers, a few which co-ordinate with the new Flower Market Cricut cartridge. The sentiments are also terrific on this stamp set but I chose to use one from one of the stamps that came with the Flower Market cartridge instead as it was smaller. A bit of thin twine from my stash finished off the card. 

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Thistle Cardstock, Rustic Home Fundamentals
Stamps: With You, Sending Smiles (from Cricut Bundle)
Inks: Eggplant, Thistle, Sweet Leaf
Accessories: Flower Market Cartridge, Circle Punch (not CTMH), Clear Sparkles Assortment (ret.), Shin Han Markers, Foam Tape, Thin Foam Tape, Twine (not CTMH)



  1. Lovely card, Alyson! I love the contrast created by the bold, bright flowers over the masculine woodgrain paper. I wish I could get that paper in bulk too!
    Thanks for inspiring me today!
