The base card is 21cm x 14.8cm and is Whisper White cardstock. I ran it through the Big Shot using the Finial Press Embossing Folder. I folded the cardstock in halves first and only embossed one half. I also cut a Top Note shape using Whisper White.
I discovered that the new ink pads are very juicy and you need to have a gentle hand when inking up your stamps ~ quite a bit different from how I am used to inking them up. The leaves from the Betsy's Blossoms set are stamped in Gumball Green which I have then fussy cut out. The little flowers are actually from a stamp that contains three images and I have cut them separately; I love this colour it is called Midnight Muse.
The birdie is stamped in Raspberry Ripple (sounds good enough to eat!) and I stamped it twice so that I could pop the wings using dimensionals. A fair bit of cutting out but I didn't want to mask and stamp and also wanted the little edge of white to show around the whole layout despite there being a white background.
The sentiment comes from Petite Pairs. It is stamped in Gumball Green, which I have then punched using the Word Window Punch. I thought that "so many smiles" suited the whimsical images from the Betsy's Blossoms set.
I wanted to pop the card a little and tie in the fresh Gumball Green colour so I mounted the whole card on a piece of Gumball Green cardstock (11cm x 15.3cm). My aim was to frame the "picture".
