A Nordstrom’s card

Dear Friends,

Happy Monday!  Hope it’s a great week for you. Did you get any shopping done?  Did you by any chance go to Nordstrom’s? When I was thinking about my card today, it reminded me of the posh department store. When I think of Nordstroms, I think tailored and elegant, which describes my card. I also think EXPENSIVE, LOL. The card does may look classy, but it sure didn’t cost a lot to make.

What is your stamp style. Are you a Nordstroms stamper? Pier 1? Crate and Barrel? I’ve always been a more elegant stamper, but recently I’ve gone more vintage and I also like a “messy” look. The cool thing about stamping is you can do any style you want — and you can change it up with each card.

For this card, I used a tonal effect. I used Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for the blues. The flowers are covered in Wink of Stella glitter. This card would also be awesome for Mother’s day, wouldn’t it?

Cutting out the flowers is a little extra work, but it’s so worth it, isn’t it?  I love the effect of the flowers popping out of the leaves. It made the card a little more special.
