I fell in love with this little stamp when I first saw it in the A la Carte section of the new catalog and it was first on my order, This card uses many "new" items and was fun to make.
  • The card base is Baja Breeze cut at 4 1/4" x 11" folded at 5 1/5" with 1/2" cut off the front. I ran the front through the Big Shot with the new Stripes folder. Add a 1" strip of striped DSP from Just Add Cake to the inside edge of card so that it peeks out when closed.
  • Elebration is stamped with Stazon onto Watercolor paper and colored with Ink and an Aqua Painter. I pulled my colors from the DSP; the elephant is Baja Breeze with Blushing Bride ears , the balloon is Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade, the cake is a mix of Peach Parfait and Blushing Bride with Wild Wasabi scallops and Poppy Parade candle and plate, the grounding shadow is River Rock.
  • I stamped the hip hip hooray from the Hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes in Poppy Parade right onto the Watercolor paper.
  • I layered the image onto Island Indigo (new In color) and then on Peach Parfait, then placed it on the card base.
  • Last I added new ruffled ribbon in Island Indigo.
I did get several cards made this week so I should be able to post some even though I will be back at Scout Camp. There is 4 more weeks to go and then it will be over until next year.  I hope that you all have a wonderful week end! It is my youngest's Birthday today, he is turning 15, so we will be partying tonight!
