Elegant Congratulations Card

Dotted Fronds

While making this card today my daughter asked me for which occasion this was.  The first thought that popped into my head was Wedding of course.  She said she would love to receive it for her next birthday, her 10th!  Which, in her young mind is a major milestone event in her life.. So I present to you today a card I made that can be given to not just a bride, but a 16, 21, 80 and most certainly a 10 year old too :)

I love background stamps and this one is certainly a new favorite of mine.  It is called Dotted Fronds and is included in the latest release from JustRite Papercraft.  I heat embossed the stamp onto Kraft colored card stock and added tiny pearls to the pattern before adhering it to my card base.

The sentiment is also from JustRite Papercraft from a set called Large Elegant Sentiments.  I heat embossed the word Congratulations on lighter cream colored cardstock and die cut the tag using Antique Tags One Dies.  I love how it is barely noticeable unless the light catches it at a certain angle adding to the delicate and fragile nature of the card

I am sure you are all curious to see what the rest of the team has done with this set?  Grab a cuppa joe and get comfy - it's a good one :)

Thanks for stoppping by today :)  It's another gorgeous day in Colorado and I am going to be busy in my craft room.  Good times!

You are lucky your daughter appreciates your crafting! Especially when she is this young. Great card! I love the background stamps. It's like we are making our own speciality paper. It is unique to us. No one else has the same thing.

I agree Mary - stamping unique backgrounds is definitely like making your own paper. This particular stamp is so gorgeous. I had to restrain myself from using it on my very next card!!! Both my girls love my cards but then again at this age Mamma can do no wrong. Hoping and crossing fingers this feeling of admiration carries through to their teens :)
