Hello there! Today I have a card for you made with the set Sent With Love. It's only around for a short time, so I wanted to make sure you knew about this exclusive set. It's only available in clear mount and the cost is $17.95, but it's a much better deal to get the Pretty Bundle and save 20%! The bundle includes the stamp set, Sent With Love DSP and Calypso Coral Baker's Twine. The cost for the bundle is $25.50, and this is only available until April 30th, so I wanted to give you a heads up! You can see more details here:

As soon as I saw this set I knew I had to have it. My dad worked for the FAA and loves anything airplane, so this will be the birthday card I give him in May. I'm going to be way ahead of the game for a change-thank you SU!!! I started with an Island Indigo base and ran it through the Big Shot with the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder. I used 5 of the 12 designs in the DSP-there are just too many fun ones to choose from! I cut the banners out with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits. I used the Handheld Punch to punch out holes at the top of each banner and strung some Calypso Coral Baker's Twine through them and knotted the ends. For fun, I added a pair of Mini Brads and I put a Dimensional on the back of each banner to add some depth and to keep them placed where I wanted them.

I threaded some more twine through a Sycamore Street Button in Calypso Coral and attached it to the banner. You can't believe how long it took me to decide between this and the Pool Party Button! I think there's something seriously wrong with me! :}

I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral and cut it out with the Bitty Banner Framelits, and snipped the ends to make an arrow. I stamped a strip in Pool Party with Pool Party ink, and another in Calypso Coral with Calypso Coral ink. I staggered them and attached them to the sentimet along with another Mini Brad.

And check out the fun envie! I used every stamp in this set for this card and matching envelope. I love it when I can do that-makes me feel like I really got my money's worth!

You can even make a seal for the back of the envelope-too much fun! The colors that are in the DSP are: Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Real Red and Whisper White-so fresh and so clean, clean! Oh, and I almost forgot...I added a couple of Whisper White clouds made with the Cupcake Builder Punch. I hope my dad will love his 80th birthday card, and I hope you do too! Thanks so much for landing here, and remember this special offer will be taking off soon...sorry, couldn't help myself! I'll see you back here tomorrow!
