Both of these cards use the wonderfully versatile Curly Cute stamp set with Chocolate Chip ink and retired ribbon. Currently you can still purchase Chocolate Chip ribbon in 5/8" Satin and 1/2" Scallop Dotted, but here I used plain Jane grosgrain because I still have lots of it, and I needed to make a bunch of Thank You cards after my daughter's birthday party. (Remember the cute Princess and Magician hats I made as favors?)
This card uses Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Cameo Coral cardstock, Language of Friendship stamp set, the Finial Press Embossing Folder and the Eyelet Border Punch.
The masculine card uses Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Old Olive cardstock, the oak tree from Lovely As a Tree, the Stripes embossing folder, and the Blossom Punch. I stamped the sentiment on a 1" wide strip of CS and then fed it through the back of the Blossom Punch to get the shape on either end. I think it creates an interesting frame for almost any sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!
