Avant Garden Congratulations Card

I send a lot of cards (it is my job after all!) but my absolute favourite type of card to send is Congratulations! I love sending these out to team members and my Stampin’ sisters, and I am trying to be better at sending them to friends and family too. I made this card for one of my lovely Stampin’ buddies who managed something totally amazing a few weeks ago…

Pretty Floral Congratulations card using Avant Garden and Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! UK

One of the many many reasons I love Stampin’ Up! is coordination, the Designer Series Paper here is in the exact same colours as the stamping on the die cut circle, and as the ribbon, and the card base and the sentiment…. it all matches, there is no guess work, it just works! The Designer Series Paper is from Blooms and Bliss, and is in Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Sahara Sand…. and I used it as my colour inspiration for the rest of the card.

Can you tell that there is a difference between the backing paper and that circle…. the circle is hand stamped using the Avant Garden stamp set in the same colour … see what I was saying about perfect coordination! Now, I know that there is not a Congratulations stamp in Avant Garden – I selected another Sale-a-bration freebie for this one, Designer Tee (more than just for T-shirts!). I am loving this fabulous stamp set that is FREE during Sale-a-bration, all you need to do to claim your copy is spend £45 in my Online Store before 31st March

Oh, and then I finished this one with the first square knot that I have ever tied successfully! So proud, I have no idea why on earth I struggled so much with it, maybe I’m not bow challenge but ribbon challenged instead!
