Who doesn’t love receiving happy mail? I know I do! It is such a change to the bills we all hate receiving. I now hop out to collect the mail in anticipation of whether or not I will receive a RAK card. Mind you, I am just more than happy sending them off knowing that I may be putting a smile on someone’s face for the day than receiving.
You opt in each month as to whether or not you would like to be part of the group & then you randomly select a few people from the group who are participating for the month to send off a RAK card to. It is amazing to see how it brightens someone’s day!
I’ve made it a goal to send out no less than 2 per week. Not only does it give me great enjoyment creating the card but knowing that it may put a smile on someone’s face at the end of a long day.
My card today was created for one of my May RAK’s. No, they don’t have to be all different. I don’t have a tutorial for you today as I posted them off before I did one.
I layered a piece of “Blooms & Bliss” DSP
(retiring) to a piece of Whisper White Card
& then to the Base Card – Island Indigo
I stamped the stem image from the “Wild About Flowers” Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Mint Macaron Ink (retiring & will be very sad to see this colour go) & then stamped the flowers in Island Indigo Ink before die cutting with the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
A piece of Mint Macaron Card was die cut using the scallop oval from the same set, adhered to the stamped oval & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ DImensionals.
The sentiment is from “Teeny Tiny Sentiments” Stamp Set, stamped onto scrap Whisper White Card in Island Indigo Ink, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete my card, I tied a small bow using Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired), attached it to the stem with a Mini Glue Dot & scattered Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers, randomly around the Card Front & to the greeting.
I was really happy with this card so fingers crossed the receiver is too.
