This lovely vintage-style card was made with a focus on the Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow Stamp Set. The Quiet Meadow stamp set sometimes gets overlooked because the coordinating Meadow Dies are so beautiful and fun to use on card projects, but the stamp set is equally as fun. The artistic images are perfect for creating soft, serene cards.

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine (SUCE*)
*SUCE (noun, homophone) / soo-kee): the abbreviated, short-hand name for the
Stampin' Up! Cut and Emboss machine. The term SUCE was invented by Barry and Jay of Mitosu Crafts (check out their amazing YouTube videos); the term SUCE was inspired by their cat named Sukie (also pronounced soo-kee, thus creating the homophone) =)
