Choose Happiness

 Choose Happiness is my favorite stamp set in the new catalog.  My friends will laugh when they read this, because it seems like many sets are "my favorites!"  I bet many of you are the same way, and have more sets that are your favorites.


This is a simple card that goes together quickly,and was inspired by a card created by Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up's Co-Founder and CEO. 

  To create this, I used a Soft Suede cardstock  base, 
stamped several flowers in soft suede ink to create a background.  

Next, I stamped the branch in Old Olive ink and stamped the bird in Soft Suede ink, onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I sponged Soft Suede Ink on the edge. 

The banners were created in two ways - the "wood" grain banner was stamped with a stamp from the Choose Happiness set and cut out with one of the Banner Framelits and my Big Shot. 

The second banner was simply a piece of the Typeset Designer Series Paper - (another one of my favorites, lol!) 

To finish the card, I just wrapped a piece of linen thread around the focal point and tied it in a bow. 

I made 50 of these cards for one of my convention swaps - and really, they went together quickly!
