Warm and Beachy Card

This was a fun card to make using the Paradise Palms Bundle.   I wish it was a warm and beachy kind of day in NE Ohio, but Spring seems to be eluding us so far.

Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper Card

This card was so simple to make using the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper!  The card base is Basic White and I added a panel of Gray Granite cardstock and then layered Sweet Sorbet DSP on top.  I added a double bow using the In Color Bakers Twine and finished with 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.  I used Stampin' Write Markers in Sweet Sorbet and Basic Black to color directly on the stamp and then stamp onto the Basic White cardstock.  The greeting is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.
