I chose Glacier Cardstock, Desert Rose Cardstock, Sundance Cardstock and Lagoon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. And can I just bring attention to the really beautiful new stamp pad designs. These are a rolling change so newer stamp sets should come with these new stickers which are SUBLIME! Anyway back to my card...
I decided to use Celebrating You Paper Packet which is brand new in the NEW Annual Catalogue, as so many of the colours are a match. I had leftovers from the gorgeous workshop packs Celebrating You Scrapbooking Workshop Kit that is the current special you can find that on my website under promotions tab with the title called "Workshop Wow - Celebrating You". I even used the thin cut that comes in that bundle in my card.
The colours are gorgeous. I picked the balloon paper that I had leftover a 3.75x3.75 inches square. Then I put a 4x4 inch square of Desert Rose Cardstock.
I found the template for the card in the Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 4 or Make It from Your Heart Volume 5 (I'm writing this away from my craft room so can't check which card pattern it is right now = I have all the MIFYH volumes!).
I cut some Glacier circle quarters (see below)... Square Patterns Thin cuts
and used this as a a little embellishment... like a sound shape...
This kit is available through to 30th September 2022, while supplies last. Shipping assessed on full retail value of all items. GST included in all prices.
I cut some circles using Circles Thin Cuts with white daisy and some old retired Stitched Circle Thin Cuts in Sundance. I stamped in the Lagoon Ink on the white.
The sentiment Congraulations came from the below stamp set Floral Sentiments
After I had photographed the card as it was evening I didn't notice that the backing of the balloon paper was more French Vanilla than White Daisy so my sentiment and backing White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack look a bit stark against the creamier French vanilla colour.
