We created our card from retired SU! DSP which was SAB 2013! Yep, I still have a stack left, but it gets a lot of use by doing the Markets & Crafty Creations. Any card I create using this paper seems to sell immediately. I will be very sad to see the last of it used, especially the dotty side of it.
I even managed to use the Pinwheel Sizzlits which has since been retired, but love it when I can reuse again.
Instead of a normal fold, I folded the Base Card about an inch from the bottom so that the Rich Razzleberry DSP & the greeting are actually stuck to the bottom of the inside card. I embossed a layer of Whisper White with the Cloud EF, lightly sponged the embossed images with Pool Party Ink to bring out the clouds a little before adhering to the Base Card top.
I cut a circle from the top layer of DSP using the Circles Framelits Collection, run a piece of Ribbon from the circle to the edge of the DSP, tucked the ends under, cut a frame from Summer Starfruit (Retired) by placing the same Circle Framelit & the next size up, ran it through the BS prior to attaching around the Base circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I created the Pinwheel by using the Pinwheel Sizzlit & holding it together with a Silver Mini Brad prior to adhering to centre of Circle with a Glue Dot. Since the photo was taken, I have actually embossed the Brad by rubbing Versamark onto the top of the Brad & heat setting with Pool Party EP & Heat Tool. It actually makes the centre pop a little.
I finished the top of the card by tying a small bow & adhering with a Glue Dot.
For the bottom part of the card, I adhered a small piece of DSP to a piece of Whisper White CS prior to adhering to the inside card. I then stamped “Happy Birthday” (from another retired Stamp Set) with Island Indigo Ink, punched it out with Word Label Punch & adhered to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I’m still in 2 minds about the Rich Razzleberry DSP part of it, but I suppose it will grow on me or hey, I could always change it too.
