Today’s card was made using the Sending Smiles Bundle which includes the Sending Smiles stamp set and the Sending Dies.  I also used Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Stylish Shapes Dies and Timber 3D Embossing Folder




I started with a piece of Parakeet Party for my card base. I then placed a piece of Basic White cardstock inside the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I added a strip of Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper to the cardstock and then adhered the piece to the card base.

As I was creating, I wondered how different Parakeet Party is from Granny Apple Green and I was very surprised!! I thought they would be very close but they aren’t!




I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut the large Basic White stitched circle.  Then I stamped the leaves directly onto the circle using Parakeet Party ink.  Then on another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the two flowers in Highland Heather ink and used Daffodil Delight for the centers using the stamp set, Sending Smiles. I cut them out using the Sending Dies.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of each flower and adhered them to the circle. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the circle and adhered it to the front of the card. 



I used the Sending Dies again to cut the Highland Heather “sending” and the Basic White one.  I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere them together (another option is use our adhesive sheets). I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front. I also used the Sending Dies to cut the sentiment.  First, I stamped the sentiment in Parakeet Party ink onto Basic White cardstock using the Sending Smiles stamp set.  I then cut it out but the sentiment is much to short for the die so I cut both ends off as shown in the pictures below.  I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.






To complete my card, I added three 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds.
