Very Vanilla-Showing Some Love

Hey Y'all!
Today I am enjoying hopping with some fabulous ladies from all across the globe as the Let's Get Hopping crew takes up the challenge to give "Very Vanilla" some love.

When I was thinking about what to make for my project, my mind went to the very first Stampin' Up! stamp set I ever purchased called Floral Phrases.  The combination of the stamps and thinlits, with gold foil paper and the gold accented ribbon make such an elegant card that can be used for a wedding or even an anniversary.  And the best part?  The matching thinlits do all the work to make a stunning presentation!  I just layered over a piece of gold foil, gold embossed the sentiment, and added the bow.
I did add some bling to my card, though.  You know us Southern Girls have to have our bling! Anyway, Stampin' Up! has Clear and Gold Faceted Gems.  Well, I only had the clear, so I coated it in the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then coated it with the Gold Stampin' Glitter!  I love finding ways to use what you have! (My husband loves when I do that as well, since it saves money and keeps me from dragging something else into the house, lol!)

  2. I'm getting a theme here. Very vanilla has never been a favorite of mine but every card on this month's hop has turned out elegant. I think vanilla may be my color of choice for sympathy and wedding cards for now on!
