Girl’s Birthday….

Today’s card is a very simple & easy card.  I’ve created this for my cousin’s shop.  I find with little girls, the CAS ones are the best.  Add a bit of glitter or bling & you have a winner.  This card is one of my more popular designs.  I am also finding I am slowly using up all my bits of current & retired DSP.

A very quick card today, although I must admit it didn’t start out to end like this, but then hey when do my cards ever start out & end up how I thought they would.

After punching the coloured flowers I thought they looked a little like water lillies, so with that in mind away I proceeded.  I then punched out the lilly pad in Old Olive but am not sure whether you may see them or not!

In Colours….

G’Day Stampers,
I’ve just finished creating a set of 6, 5 x 5 Gift Cards and Wallet for a friend.  I’ve used all the Australian Current Stampin’ Up!® “In” Colours.  I then made envelopes to suit the size & to match the cards.
I got to use my new Butterfy Punch which is in the latest Stampin’ Up!® current Mini-Catalogue.
Don’t forget this Mini ends 31st March!
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Great Friend
Ink – Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze
Cardstock – Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango,  Kiwi Kiss,
Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
DSP – Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron,
Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette
Punches – Butterfly, Eyelet, Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon,
Mini-Dots, Uni Ball Gel Pen

Gosh, I hope I haven’t forgotten anything.
I created a Wallet specially to hold the cards, which closes of its own accord, so I didn’t need to use anything to hold it closed.
I typed Mary’s name on the pc & then punched it out using the Large Oval Punch 
Using the butterfly stamp from “Great Friend”, I’ve stamped the image onto the card, then again onto Whisper White, cut this image out & using mini-dots, adhereded to card.  You can’t see it in the pics – sri
Card & Matching Envelopes – Kiwi Kiss & Riding Hood Red
Cards & Matching Envelopes – Pacific Point & Tangerine Tango
Card & Envelopes – Baja Breeze & Pink Pirouette
Until next post
