Give Me a Ring


How about another fun card from this month's Flourishes New Releases?   I can tell by people's response that you really love this cute set Call Me.  :)  I do too.  I think the vintage phones are SO fun.  I have to tell you, I had the best little giggle as I was making this card.  As I was stamping out the sentiment I thought, "ha, this would be a funny card from a girl to a guy - like she's demanding a proposal!"  So everytime I look at it that cracks me up!  

The shape is first cut with the Call Me set's Silhouette Cut file on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock, then stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured up with Copics.  A telephone book should always be yellow don't you think?  They delivered the yellow pages the other day and I realized that it's been years since the last time I looked up a phone number in a paper phone book.  

I've paired it up with one of my all time paper packs from MME - Sunshine.  I love the blend of yellow, black, cream and soft blues.  I have barely anything left from this pack.  


Behind the image I used our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die, some wood buttons, iridescent ribbon, and gold cording, and all placed on Flourishes Classic Kraft card stock.  And there you have it!

Everything about this card coordinates so beautifully, Christine. It's apparent how you enjoy the paper and stamp set in the way your use of each seems so effortless. I love the colors, especially the bit of yellow. Very cute stamp set. A great release altogether!
