I Was Thoughtless

So sorry. I was thoughtless.

No, not really, but, what a wonderful set of sentiments, if you need them! It’s from the stamp set, So Sorry. Page 137 of the 2012/2013 catalog. It’s another ‘must have’.

This is yet again another stamp set I’ve had for a while but have not used it! Why, oh, why? It’s great!

My inspiration came from Create with Connie and Mary today. And, it’s a color challenge, CCMC250, using Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Basic Grey. Lovely colors! And, some great inspiration on their blog too.

I really got creatively inspired with my card this time, even though it’s rather simple. I started with one of those ‘center stair step cards’ as my base. Then I added a couple layered ovals from the Ovals Collections Framelits. The ovals are really tricky for me to stamp words on. They always appear ‘off’. But, this looks pretty even.

Now, I did not have any Calypso Coral Ribbon to use here. I had to get real creative. I punched a strip using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border (how appropriate, having no ribbon) and broke down the fibers using my bone folder. After about 5 minutes or so, it pulled apart really nicely. It’s soft as suede! I added one ‘half’ along the bottom and the other half I cut up to make little ribbon strips. Very sweet, huh?

My poor lower stamped sentiment. It’s a little smudgy. But, it is what it is. I do LOVE this card none the less. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve made lately.

What do you think?

Happy Stampin’
