Jennifer had a couple of great tips for layering intricate die cuts that I have used to add dimension to "happy" and I followed her instructions to create a background word chevron on the banner panel. Finding the perfect stamp was the biggest challenge and I finally settled on one from My Favorite Things - all other dies and stamp are from Papertrey Ink.
Did you notice that the banner is the card front?
Cath at Moxie Fab World is issuing a challenge a day this week to celebrate the release of a Paper Crafts special issue magazine: Birthday Celebrations. The first challenge is to create a birthday card based on this sketch.
In addition to the sketch, the card must either be made only using all stamps OR no stamps.
The word "birthday" was already sitting on my desk, leftover from the card above, so I rotated the sketch and made this "no stamps" card.
The Headline Alphabet and Birthday Style dies are from Papertrey Ink. A Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder adds a little more dimension and a few word stickers and gems add to the party feel.
I cut a few more of the streamers/banners to decorate the envelope after watching the Make It Monday #124: Dressed Up Envelopes video from Melissa. I ran the die cuts all the way across the front of the envelope, not worrying about leaving space for a stamp or return address - this card will be hand delivered.
I love how the back looks, with another set of dies hanging over the flap edge!
I will be back with more Summer Card Camp 2 projects.
Thanks for stopping by,
