Last Friday was Kelly's birthday and this is the card I made for her using the SU! Pennant Parade set. I wanted a DL size card but the thing I don't like about DL cards is that they don't always stand up well, they have a tendency to flop down. So I cut two pieces of Pool Party CS, one longer than the other, added a score line to the longer piece and then glued them together to make a side opening DL card. I sponged the Whisper White panel with Bashful Blue ink and stamped the sentiment. I then got busy stamping and punching out the bunting. I've used white baker's twine for my line, I popped the bunting up and then added different coloured brads. I thought the birdie from the Sweetheart set would look good perched on the line of bunting so I stamped, cut him out and popped him up. I then added a trio of teeny embossed butterflies. To finish off the card front I added bling here and there.
Then I decorated the inside of the card and the front of the envelope.
I wanted a birdie holding a flag for the envelope flap - pennant and Word Window punched shapes attached to a cocktail stick saw to that - simple but sweet I think!
I sent Kelly some SU! ribbon as a little gift. My fab demo Joanne ran a ribbon share and I received it from her packaged so nicely in a cello bag with a lovely stamped and punched topper. All I had to do was wrap it in tissue paper and add a tag. I had such a sweet thank you email from Kelly, bless her!
