Wisteria Wishes

 Hello friends! Wow, has summer ever arrived in Kelowna! It is supposed to get up to 40 degrees by the end of this week. I love the heat but this is actually a bit too hot for me. I hope everyone stays  well during this heat wave. And I hope we don't end up with more forest fires!

Last weekend my daughter and granddaughter joined us out at the lake. (Dad had to work) It was the baby's first experience at the beach and she loved it! I'll add some pictures at the end of this post.

So for today's card I am sharing one that I designed for my stamp group. I used the Wisteria Wishes Bundle to make this card. One of the gals on our team ended up in hospital needing surgery so I sent her this card as a get well card. She was thrilled with it.

I started with a Sahara Sand card base. On top of that I added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that I embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is perfect if you want to add just a little bit extra texture to your card but still keeping it subtle.

I used the Wisteria Dies from the bundle to cut out the more solid wisteria pieces from some Highland Heather cardstock. I then cut out the more detailed wisteria pieces from some Fresh Freesia cardstock. I attached the detailed piece on top of the more solid piece using Tombo glue.

I also cut out the leaves pieces from some Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I removed the lower stem from one of the branches and attached the leaves to the top of my card front using Tombo glue. I then attached the wisteria pieces to the branches that were hanging down.

I stamped my sentiment from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Sahara Sand ink. I cut out a stitched banner from a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies set. I added my sentiment piece to the banner and then added it to the card front using dimensionals.

I tied a bow using a piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and added it to the top of the leaves using a glue dot. That completes my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I am glad that my team member liked it! 

Stay well and keep creating!
