July Card Class

Hello everyone! I hope you have enjoyed the summer thus far. The 4th of July has never been my favorite holiday. I love the symbolism and appreciating the history of our countries independence. However for me this means that on that day (and the days surrounding it) are firework filled which means my dogs go a little crazy. Surprisingly Oreo, the little guy, just hides or sits on my lap and is ok. The big dog, Maxie, is the one who follows me, sits on me and shivers like a like she is coming out of her skin. I feel so bad for her, it is hard to appreciate the day. I will say that Utah is a firework crazy state, compared to others I have lived in. I admit – it makes for a great show. Too bad I hardly get to see them! Anyway …. to the cards for this month. All items are from Stampin’ Up!

 

Beautifully Baroque – I loved this set from the get go and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. It was in my first order for the new Stampin’ Up! catalog. It ended up being bigger than I thought so I went on line for inspiration. Other than the colors, this is the card on saw on a blog called Magnolia’s Place.

Regarding Dahlia – I loved the boldness of this flower stamp set as well. I know we have a lot of floral in our catalog, but I liked how this one could be simple or you really make it pop. For this card, I kept it sweet and simple.
