I needed to make some thank you cards for gifts I received on my birthday last week and I was looking around for inspiration. It was after a full day and the boys had just gone to be and that's a time when my creative mojo just isn't at it's highest. I paged through last months issue of Stampin' Success our monthly demonstrator magazine (another great perk to being a demonstrator!) and saw a sample using the Send Me Soaring set from the Occasions mini. It's a cute set but I didn't get it when the mini came out. I decided to make my version of the card using a stamp set that I had.
Clean & Simple Notecard. I saw these colors together on some bedding in a magazine and really like the fresh combination. Pool Party, Wild Wasabi and Rich Razzleberry.
I embossed the white clouds on the Pool Party base. I used my markers to color the balloon from Up, Up & Away and cut it out lickety split with my paper snips. I used white Baker's Twine to make the string and knot and then adhered it over the clouds with a dimensional.
Next I made some grass with the narrow strip of Wild Wasabi that I cut with the paper snips to make a fringe. I adhered that down and then used the circle punch to punch out a little spot for my sentiment to peek through.
I hope everyone has a fun weekend and enjoys St. Patrick's day!
