When I was a little girl, my sister and I would play outside and pick the flowers growing in the yard and then give them to our mom who would proudly place them in a vase. I’m pretty sure there were times when those flowers got tucked into our jacket pockets while we continued playing, only to be found later when they were thrown into the wash. We learned early on that mom didn’t like finding things in our pockets and that we were to check them before throwing the clothing in the laundry.
We lived in a small town that I would consider to be country living, (or pretty darn close to it!), so I wanted this card to have a country feel to it.
I used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink on Real Red card stock to create a bandana-looking background. The Soft Sky pocket was cut out with a die from the Pocket Framelit Dies, complete with side flaps that are glued down so that you really end up with a pocket to tuck things into!
I stamped the daisies (from Daisy Delight) on Daffodil Delight card stock with Night of Navy ink and then punched them out the the Daisy punch. Did you know that this punch is Stampin’ Up’s most popular punch in 5 years? It’s so popular that they haven’t been able to keep it in stock for any length of time since the new 2017-18 catalog started! More are coming into the warehouse soon, so you’ll be able to get one….if you don’t blink!
Thanks for stopping by today!
