I've had my eye on a few stamp sets from Stampin Up! and finally got the courage (and funds) to buy them. They arrived just in time for a color challenge by Embellish Magazine. The coral color made me a little nervous since I've never used it before, but thought I'd give it a try anyway. I folded a piece of coral cardstock into a 5"x4" card and used a corner punch to round out the corners. Then, using my Cricut machine, I cut out a scalloped oval on white cardstock and stamped the "kindness" sentiment from the Define Your Life stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink. To get it to fit just inside the cutout, I used my handy dandy Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.
I stamped a few of the trees from the Trendy Trees Stamp Set in Cameo Coral and Chocolate Chip ink onto white cardstock and cut them out using a square punch. I then cut out a slightly larger square on the yellow cardstock to make a little border for my trees. The bottom of the card seemed a little bare with just the scallop cutout so I ran a thin dark brown ribbon through it to add a little more color.
Enjoy and have a great rest of your weekend! :)
