WMS July Release-Day 3

     Wow! It’s day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps July release. Tomorrow’s the big day!! Big hugs and blessings for all your comments and get well wishes!
     There are eight sets releasing this month, so it is a bit of a challenge in itself to show you every set to it’s fullest…I’m sure that’s why Claire has such an awesome (and large) design team; everyone is sure to show you something different and cover all the bases.
     Today, I am showing you my most favorite set of this release, You’re Lovely. age style sentiment are all from the set.Vintage Style 1

     For some reason the bottom corners photographed funky. IRL, the bottom corners are the exact same as the top. Not quite sure what photography trick was at work, but you get the gist. Here, everything but the sentiment is from You’re Lovely. The sentiment, you saw it yesterday (yes, I love it), is from Big Day Essentials. Once again, this is a flat panel card. The idea here is to run the silver cardstock through the printer for all the deets and then attach the decorative panels. I think this card could work for both a wedding or a prom. If used for a prom, it could be sent to a bunch of girlfriends for a “let’s get ready together” get-together.Vintage Style 2

      This card also uses the You’re Lovely set, but the flowers are from the Eat Cake set, which I will be showing you tomorrow. That fabulous flourish is from the first of a series called Flourishes-Scallops & Dots. The oval shadow stamp from Ovals-Classic Frames is perfect to ground the image. I used Victorian Frippery for the border because it is the perfect vintage compliment.Vintage Style 3
