This card was really fun. My sister sent me a new stamp set this week called "Ciao" from Close To My Heart, and I could NOT wait to use it. I wanted a really over the top card and this is it. First off, the card is 5 1/4 by 8". I wanted a big card because the stamp is large. The card base is a textured buttercream yellow shade from the pastels stack by DCWV. The scalloped background paper is by Colorbok and it is called Flea Market. The image was stamped in pink with chalk ink then embossed in clear to make it shine. The sentiment was done the same way, and is also from the same Ciao stamp set. This would make a great graduation card, but there are many occasions where this card would be appropriate.
