Dandy Wishes - PMS Sneak Peeks

Today Paper Makeup Stamps is showing you a sneak peek of a new set illustrated by Lindsay Spencer called Dandy Wishes. I just {heart} all the dandelion images in this beautiful set!

I dropped both of my boys off at camp for a week on Sunday. I decided to make each of them a pocket card and mail them to camp to let them know how much we miss them! No really, the peace and quiet is SO nice, but we still DO miss them, haha. So, of course I had to make each card in their favorite colors. And being the kind, sensitive mom that I am, I didn't go overboard with any frilly or sparkly accessories because it is a BOYS camp and they will be opening their mail surrounded by their friends. No need to embarrass them TOO much. {grin}

I cut the blue and green cardstocks into 8-1/2" by 5-1/4" pieces, scored them at 2-5/8" on each side and folded them into the middle to make the pockets. Before taping them closed, I used nesties to cut out the windows and cuttlebug folders to dry emboss the center for some texture. I have some clear, heat-resistant window sheets that I used to emboss the dandelion heart flowers on before coloring them in with copics and taping them into the window spaces.

The pull-out card part measures 3" by 4-5/8". I kept the tabs simple, because again, these ARE going to a boys camp. {smile} The sentiment
Wish You Were Here is from an earlier PMS release and I think it goes perfectly with the dandelion as well as the occasion for my cards.

Be sure to check out the
