My friend Claire has a new book out! It is called If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home Now, and it is getting great reviews from everyone who has read it. I just picked up my copy today, so I can’t tell you how fabulous it is yet, but if it’s anything like her other books, it will be absolutely fantastic! I wanted to make her a congratulations card, and this week’s Pals Paper Arts Colors are so bright and cheery, I knew they would be perfect.
As I looked at these colors, I thought about a past card I had made with Fifth Avenue Floral, and thought that these would be perfect for a redo! And guess what? The new Decorative Label Punch fits the sentiment from that set perfectly!
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral
Ink:Peach Parfait, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzaz
Paper: Peach Parfait, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Other: Pear Pizzaz Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch
To make a mat for the new punch, I punched two labels out of the Peach Parfait card stock, and cut one in half the long way, and the other in halgf the short way. Then I spread them out a little to place behind the white.
