After making the Lemon Surprise scrapbook page of my son and commenting that the citrus image in the Tart & Tangy stamp set could be used as an orange, lemon or lime the inspiration came to make a card just like that. Here is my "Citrus Hello" card. This is a very easy card to make and quickly duplicate. I love those kinds of cards. :o) I have seen quite often other creators putting scallop edges like the one I did on this card. I don't think I have done that before but I really like that effect. The stamp Tart & Tangy stamp set is lots of fun to stamp with. If it is a set on your "wishlist" make sure you purchase it before the end of June because after that it is no longer available. Another stamp set that I used on this card is the Fundamental Phrases card. This is a great stamp set as it consists of words for not only occasions but every day use like the word I picked for my card. This stamp set is also on the "Last Chance" stamp set list. I was going over the Last Chance Accessories list the other night and saw that the HodgePodge Hardware is an item on that list. I still have some left so I thought I would use a brad to put the finishing touch on my card. Did you notice that this card does not have any ribbon on it? Are you surprised? I am....mostly all of my cards have some sort of ribbon on it. Perhaps my use for the Styled Silver HodgePodge Hardware was enough to use as an embellishment. My card size is 3" x 5".
