Happy Saturday, y’all! Hope you’ve got a good day planned! I’m headed to a friend’s 50th Birthday Party this afternoon – it’s been a while since I’ve seen him so I’m looking forward to it!
And – today is 14 days from flying home. And 16 days from heading to Seattle.
I mean. If I was counting… 😉
My card today is a fun birthday card – using the new One For All stamp set with a few images from the Around the Corner stamp set, too. And I added some Best Route DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I started with some beautiful Blueberry Bushel paper from the Best Route DSP pack (one of the packs included in the Buy-3-Get-1 Free Special kicking off tomorrow!) that I matted on some Mango Melody card stock using Liquid Glue. Then I cut a smaller strip of some fun striped paper from the same set and adhere it across the bottom.
I wrapped a length of Pineapple Punch 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the seam, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.
I stamped the big and bold sentiment from the One For All set in Mango Melody on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I added some fun birthday hats from the Around the Corner stamp set in Blueberry Bushel – and one of the corner flourishes while I was at it.
I matted the panel on Mango Melody and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added a few – okay FIVE! – Pineapple Punch circles from the Best Route Enamel Shapes pack – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I called on the Around the Corner set to add another sentiment in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel. Then I added a few more Pineapple Punch Best Route Enamel Shapes.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and then into my Blueberry Bushel card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a little more Around the Corner in Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch on the front – along with a few more Best Route Enamel Shapes…
…and I added more of the Around the Corner images on the back and a little more Best Route DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think this one will work really well for the intended recipient! I love both of these stamp sets – the big bold sentiments in One For All and the fun corner-turning sentiments and images of Around the Corner. And..the color palette in Best Route is one of my favorites! I hope you like!
