Paired Up

Some readers: "Tee, hee! She said, 'Paired.' Sounds like 'pear.' I know what that means!" [insert juvenile laughter]

Other readers: "English majors [insert disgusted eye roll]. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

Me: "No, a cigar is never just a cigar. And neither is a pear, especially if it's up."

Junior high is now adjourned. Let's move on. No pears to see here.

Clearly Besotted has a lovely set called Paired Up (which I will forgive it for because it clearly wasn't named by an English major), and here's a cute Valentine's Day card I made with it.

Pink, red, and gray make a crisp and sweet love-bird card, don't you think? The branch is gray because it was light enough that it wouldn't show through the red birds when they were stamped over it. No masking needed...practical and pretty!

The design looked a bit flat until the flowers got their red centers, and the little pair of flowers by the sentiment were added to unify the two parts of the design.

And that's all I have to say about that!

Begging forgiveness for inappropriate pear jokes,

stamps: Clearly Besotted Paired Up
ink: Archival pink peony, red geranium, black; Memento London fog
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: Memento marker (for flower centers)


  1. Oh I love that branch with the birds and the colors you used Susan! Perfection.

  2. Well...I must admit, I'm half in group one, and half in group three. And, I'm slightly disappointed there were no pear stories or cards! Hee hee. Susan, this is adorable! Thanks for the morning smiles, and have a great day!

  3. ApPEARently this is the card all the pear fuss is over. Very nice!

  4. This is a very sweet card. I really like the flowers by the sentiment.
