Penny Black Garden Visit


Happy Saturday!  Summer is here in Arizona, our high temperatures are reaching 110 and above now.  It's a good time to stay in the cool air conditioning and do some crafting!

I have a fun card to share with you today, it's a pop up card.  It folds flat for mailing and has a little extra flap on the back to write a message on.  It's a card for Operation Write Home so I needed to figure out how to make a place to write a letter home and I did, I just forgot about taking a picture of that part.

The image is a cling mount rubber stamp by Penny Black called Garden Visit.  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink & used Copic markers to color W3, W1, W0, E07, E08, E09, E31, E50, E25, E17, RV10, Y38, Y35.  My cardstock colors are Kraft, Neenah Solar White, Via Leaf Green & Brick Red.  I also used Spellbinders rectangle & scalloped rectangle dies and a 1" circle punch by Stampin' Up!  

I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend and come back tomorrow for our Clear Dollar Stamps blog hop.  Can't wait!!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
