Hey everyone!  I think this new set is so cute.  I just had to step out of my card making style for this set today and make something with some whimsey!

Call Me, Maybe

I started off my card by creating a A2 card sized card base using the "Purple Palisades" cardstock from the "Crocus" Color Made Perfect Cardstock package.

Then I printed out a map of Canada on some Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and then used my Silhouette Cut File to cut out the telephone and coffee mug negative from my map.  I then cut a mat using Flourishes Classic White Cardstock again and used a pencil to mark the exact position of my cut out. I then stamped my fabulous image using my favourite ink, Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.

I then coloured my image using the following Copic Collections:
I also added a fun banner using some patterned papers using the May 123 Create Kit - "Prairie Chic".

My sentiment is simply stamped right on to a wood veneer speech bubble using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.  The stars represent where I live and where my Mom and sister live - that's who my card is for!  Cute eh?

I finished off the inside as well using the same image from the "Call Me" stamp set, a simple sentiment and fun strip of yellow gingham paper from the May 123 Create Kit - "Prairie Chic".
Don't forget... all of our new sets are available for pre-order — if you like what you see on our designer’s blogs today. And, you can also take advantage of our New Release Bundle for May as well!
