A Set of Cards for Gifting


How are you my friends? It's a beautiful, sunny but cooler day here in Hawai'i. We can feel "fall" in the air, too, as it gets cool at nights and mornings, a crispness but still warm afternoons in the 80s. This is my favorite time of year in Hawai'i! The humpback whales start showing up to calve their young, then start back for Alaska around March.

I made a little set of cards to give to friends. The cards and envelopes are ocean themed. I like to give a book of stamps with cards which is an idea I got from Jennifer McGuire ♥ It will make it easier for them to use if the stamps are right there with them. Using a MISTI makes it super fast to kick multiple cards out. After stamping, I flicked a little ink to make ocean spray. The backs of the envelopes are stamped with faded sand pipers.

Stamp Sets: "Wetlands (for the gift cards and envelopes)" and "Sheltering Tree (the envelope for personal card)" by Stampin' Up
Cardstock: GKD Prickly Pear, White - both 120 and 80#
Ink: Memento; VersaFine Sepia for the sentiment; GKD mini inks for the tree on envelope
Spetrum Noir clear glitter brush pen

Gift Card Set "Wetlands"

The envelope with a personal card inside;
Pkg of "pet" forever stamps :)

Have a great week ahead ♥
