While vacationing in Seaside, Oregon for my birthday at my daughter's beach house, Michele's sister-in-law brought over a lovely bouquet of the largest, darkest purple and darkest blue hydrangeas I have ever seen. Now, if you don't know, hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers since I was a little girl, because they flourish in my hometown of Eureka, California. These flowers just love that cool coastal weather found in both Eureka and Seaside! I had to find a way to bring them home so that I could continue to enjoy them some more.
I wanted to thank Julie and her family by making and sending a little thank you card for remembering me with this special gift. I thought I would share her thank you card with my blog readers. I decided to pull out some of my older Stampin' Up products that I haven't used in a while because I just love this stamp set and this patterned dsp paper. Julie's card is a circle-shaped card, made with the largest Spellbinder Classic Scallop and plain dies, but the rest of the card uses Stampin' Up products.
Next is a quick peek at the card's inside. The leaf is done with the Gently Falling stamp set, which has outline stamps and inside filler stamps. By over-stamping, you can put the two together to look like my leaf.
