Happy Memorial Day, let me first thank all the service men and women – past and present who have served our great country – you are reason we have the freedoms we do today! It’s been a busy weekend around here, we opened the pool which is an all day affair and had some great bar-b-q and grilled steak.
This week I decided to do the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch challenge again. I’m finding I like having a sketch to think about for a day or two and create a card around it. The sketch is below:
For my Sunday stamp club this month, I was asked for a baby card and used the Zoo Babies stamp set, so I decided that stamp set would be the stamp set I used for the card. I used a variety of favorite items, including a punch from the new Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack, from the new 2014-2015 Catalog which goes live June 2nd! Contact me to obtain one.
Card starts with a Whisper White card base, Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper backed with Basic Black as the background. In the upper right hand of the card is a banner cut from the Banners Framelits and highlighted with a heart from the new Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack covered with Crystal Effects for a glossy finish and backed by a dimensional. Used the Crystal Effects on the Crushed Curry one inch circle for the same finish, just adds a little something fun to the card. Used the Cheveron Punch for the Bermuda Bay at the bottom and the arrows are from the Label Card Thinlits, backed with dimensionals. Super cute animals are embossed in white and stacked on a piece of Basic Black, die cut with a Starburst Framelits. Used the Stamp-a-ma-Jig to make sure the monkey could sit on the zebra on the alligator. Greeting is also from the Zoo Babies stamp set on a handmade banner.
