I love the leaves with the lattice that makes such a beautiful edging.
the Lemon- Lime twist cardstock is already gone!
You could use other combinations of green.
Base is Lemon lime twist with a layer of 5 1/4x 4 inch whisper white in the inside to show off the pretty leaves. Stamp the wonderful romance in Memento Tuxedo black and color in with old olive, granny apple green, Blackberry bliss
Add pearls to the center of flowers and linen thread to the stem to additional interest.

The base card is Soft Suede. I used a piece fo very Vanilla to stamp the dog house and the sentiment- I then used a scrap piece of vanills to stamp the dog and the bone, then punched it out with a circle punch. Added another layer of soft suede behind it. Punch out the dog and mount with dimensionals. take a pice of crumbcake and stamp the paws all over it. cut a window opening - (using Lawn Fawn die). take 2 pennies and add a small stampin dimensional in between and glue the bone circle on top to create a spinner.

Stamp the butterfly from Butterfly Gala and punch it out- use the one for the inside and the small one for the outside.
The front sentiment and the little scroll is from Amazing Life set.
The inside is stamped in the corner with another saleabration set All Adorned. The sentiment is also from the Butterfly Gala set.
stamp 2 large butterflies. String fishing line between the folds on the inside and tape it down using a gluedot and a scotchtape on top to really secure it. glue one butterfly on top of the other sandwiching the fishing line and twist the butterfly before mailing so that it will spin when the receiver opens it.
Don't you just LOVE moving cards?

I thought I would still tell you how to make it.
Take a base card of Whisper White thick cardstock. Take a sheet of Daffodil Delight slightly smaller than the base card. then I took a strip of black, diecut an oval from it and then used the same die to pencil in the other side of the oval to create the focus of light.
I took a piece of Real red- and for those who are not sure, mark 1/2 inch on the bottom from
Use the ruffle embossing folder to create the curtain effect- run the curtains together so you know one is left and the other is right.
Stamp the sentiment on the inside and the Suprise on the piece of banner punched out with Duet Banner - also retiring!

As soon as I saw this set I had to have it to make this sweet shop.
The base is whisper white thick CS- I like it sturdy. Then I took a piece of Daffodil Delight , ran it with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder vertically. mount it using dimensionals.
Cut out the window using the rectangle die from the Sliding door die (the Barn door) and it is the perfect size!
I slid a piece of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala DSP to create a base.
The cakes were stamped with Piece of Cake stamp and Build a cake punch, colored as shown and the middle one mounted with dimensionals to pop it up.

I have been putting my stamping on the back burner due to some stresses related to work issues but like this card says I deserve some R&R so will post some of the cards I have been making.
Stamp the image on a piece of whisper white. first the stems of the palm trees in soft suede then the leaves to match in granny apple green, sponge the sand in Crumbcake, then the Pool party water but put a strip of paper across the card to create a horizon line as you sponge the water
Take a scrap of whisper white and stamp the bench in black and stripes in bermuda bay. sponge the area under the bench with crumbcake to carry over the sand image and the blue under the left side of the bench to continue the water- it's a small detail that really makes it look bad without it! Stamp the sentiment and cut it out with the Rectangle Stitched framelits die- another total favorite! and the card is done!
