Countdown to Occasions Catalog - Day 4

I hope that you are in the midst of a wonderful New Year.  I got a chance to spend New Year's Eve with great friends and family.  One of the fun things I got to do was craft with my nieces.  One of them is very creative and of course loved being in my studio with me.  If only we lived closer to each other and then we could create together more often.  I helped them create a birthday card for their cousin.  Then afterwards I played with some of the new Sending Love Suite perfect for our Countdown to the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  I only have DSP and the wooden embellishments and I created this quick and easy card:

I decided to use Pool Party to go with the Real Wed and Whisper White.  The "love words" background paper is definitely one of my favorite from this stack.  I just layered some Pool Party card stock under some Whisper White and stamped me sentiment, which is from the So In Love stamp set (you might be seeing this set again in our countdown).  I tied some of the Stitched Satin Ribbon in Pool Party.  That ribbon ties so nicely!  I added some wooden elements to the sentiment and then I tied a few other on using some of the Red Metallic Thread.  This would be a cute engagement or anniversary card or of course a Valentine's Day card.  

Aren't these new products so fun?  Head back over to SSI to see how the other designers used this LOVE-ly Suite!
