Just Sayin- Card to Make

Welcome to my first card on this blog hop with my favourite consultants.

This card has been created using products from the Ideas Book "Seasonal Expressions 2" New paper pack called "Blossom" (X7196B). It is the most beautiful paper pack that can be extremely feminine or like above a bit more masculine. Change the sentiments and this would make a wonderful male birthday card. Using the Stamp of the Month "Just Sayin-" (S1505) was a blast.  I loved the way you could create your own strip using just one stamp and two different inks - Smoothie (Z2196) and Pear (Z2197) on plain card stock. This one I used White Daisy Card stock. As the stamp had a scalloped edge I thought I would use that idea for the card using the wonderful Scallop Border Punch (Z1851), which created a brilliant effect.  To finish off I used one stamp in Pear for the "Full of Goodness", one of the stamps in Lagoon (Z2195), a trim from the "Blossom" paper pack and finishing with a little bit of glitter - Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799). 
 Of course the final addition was using the stamp "You and Me" in Smoothie Ink and then fussy cut with the magnificent Non-stick Micro tip Scissors (Z1836). The scissors are definitely the best I have ever used, with the micro - tip you can cut very fine edges with ease.
