Happy Birthday Sissy

Okay, so her birthday was on Tuesday, but we are in Bozeman now celebrating with her. We started off today by running a 5k! Anyways, onto the card.

I wanted to use some of the new DSP that this new catalog has to offer. I was instantly drawn to this color combination - LOVE green and purple together! I will admit, that this card was a work in progress. Started with the paper and the Top Note die and then just added embellishments and paper until it passed approval! Whatcha think? I think I am in love with buttons!

Stamp Set:
Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Old Olive, Orchid Opulance, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Cottage wall DSP
Accessories: Dimensionals, Top note die, Bit Shot, Oval Punch, Oval Scallop Punch, Old Olive Playground buttons, Rich Razzleberry ribbon

Happy birthday sis!

p.s. Do you have Teeny Tiny Wishes yet? You'll use it for everything!!!

Flock Together notecard

Okay, so you know how much I love the little pouches, and this one is just adorable! :) They are so versatile. They can hold gift cards, candies, money, the possibilities are endless! Wanna know how to make one?

Step 1: Cut your paper to measure 8 x 5 1/2. Score at 3 1/4 and 6 3/4 and then at 1 inch on both sides of the long direction. Cut off the four corner tabs. The only tabs needed are in the middle.
Step 2: Using your corner rounder, punch all of the corners.
Step 3: Apply adhesive to the top of the flaps. Make sure you don't go all the way up as your front panel doesn't quite reach the top.
Step 4: Using the Horizontal punch, punch a hole in the flap. I had to punch one and a half out to fit the wider ribbon.
Step 5: Embellish the front panel of the envelope.
Step 6: Feed the ribbon through the bottom of the flap and then tie a bow on top of the flap. You're done! How quick and easy is that????

Love it! And I do admit that at firs wasn't crazy about this designer paper, but once I gotit combined with the coordinating card stock - looks great!
