Hydrangea Hill Stampin Up FSM469 card

 I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since I posted last. What can I say,  I guess life got away from me. I needed a few thank you cards for my customers so I incorporated the current Freshly Made Sketches #469 challenge into my card design. Killed two birds with one stone.

I started with a standard basic white card base. I added a piece of Gorgeous Grape cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I then layered a piece of basic white cut to 4 x 5 1/4 which I embossed the top 3rd with the Meadow Moments embossing folder. I then layered 3 1/2 in strips of the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate on the bottom. I stamped the thank you sentiment from the Lots of Heart Stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink. I then stamped the Hydrangea from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set with memento black on Basic White card stock. I colored it in with the light and dark Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Pear Pizza Stampin Blends. I then cut it out with the Hydrangea dies. I popped this up with dimensionals and then added 3 of the Pastel Pearls to finish off the card.

I added a piece of Gorgeous Grape cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I then layered a piece of basic white cut to 4 x 5 1/4 on top. I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and added a small strip of the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass acetate to the bottom. For the envelope I cut a 6 x 2 1/4 in piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP and glued it to the back flap of a basic white medium envelope. 

Here is the Freshly Made Sketch the card was based off of.

Update: My card was chosen for the Queen of Clean!

All products used are available from my online shop at I would love to have you as a customer. 

That’s it for now. I’ll promise I’ll try to do better about posting. LOL
