Yellow makes me happy

This card all in Saffron follows another Verve sketch and uses a lot of FREE Sale-A-Bration product. The pattern paper is Delicate Dots DSP, which you can earn FREE, the ribbon is one of two from the SAB Ribbon Bundle, which you can earn FREE, and the stamp set is Congrats, one of the stamp sets you can earn FREE.

I stamped the sentiments from Congrats in More Mustard ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I punched out the finishing phrase with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. The layers of So Saffron dsp from the Delicate Dots DSP are matted with Whisper White and adhered to the So Saffron card base. I wrapped a piece of So Saffron Wide Grosgrain and added a white Latte Button to the main panel. The paper piercing on the circle piece used the Mat Pack to keep it in a straight line and evenly spaced - it continues the dotted pattern from the Congratulations stamp.

For the inside, I added another piece of the Delicate Dots DSP with a bottom border of Whisper White punched with the beautiful Eyelet Border Punch. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the sentiment from Sweet Little Sentiments, a Level I Hostess Set, in More Mustard ink.

Stamps: Congrats, Sweet Little Sentiments
Cardstock: So Saffron, Whisper White, Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: More Mustard
Accessories: 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/5" Circle Punch, Linen Thread, So Saffron Grosgrain SAB Ribbon Bundle, Eyelet Border Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

This is another Verve sketch that I did. I used the same So Saffron pattern paper from the SAB Delicate Dots DSP. I just can't get enough of the yellows this year and this paper is beautiful. There are lots of other papers in this pack, but I haven't used anything but the Saffron ones.

I stamped the lilies from Always In My Thoughts stamp set in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Vellum Cardstock. I added White Detail Embossing Powder and set with my Heat Gun. Then I flipped this over and on the back of the vellum, I colored in the image with my Stampin' Markers in Rose Red, Summer Sun, Old Olive and Really Rust. I added a shadow at the base with Bordering Blue, but I think it looks more like the water leaked!

I cut this out using my Coluzzle and then a smaller oval shape from Whisper White cardstock. I adhered the vellum piece to the Whisper White piece with my Two Way Glue Pen just to the stamped image, so the adhesive doesn't show. I added Earth Elements Eyelets with my Crop-A-Dile and a strip of Old Olive Cardstock through the middle. The ribbon is the new Whisper White Organza. I adhered the main image with Stampin' Dimensionals and added the sentiment, from Always In My Thoughts, in Always Artichoke ink.

For the inside, I just layered a strip of the Delicate Dots pattern paper across a liner of Whisper White cardstock.

Gorgeous cards, Mary. I really love the way you colored the markers on the back of the vellum. I always forget about that technique! TFS!
