This card I am afraid is sort of a “cram all my favourites in to one card” type of card. I have pulled out my favourite Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper again (sorry), I literally could not resist it!! I also used my fast becoming favourite colour, Pool Party!
I used the Best Day Ever stamp set again which is the Sale-a-Bration product of the week to demonstrate how versatile this stamp set can be, this stamp set is available as part of the SAB promotion where you can choose a “Free” product from the SAB catalogue for every £45 you spend on Stampin’ Up products, Bargain!!
So I took some Pool Party Classic Ink and A4 Cardstock, which I cut in half (length ways) and scored it to make a top folding portrait card base. I then took a piece of the Irresistibly Yours DSP 5 4/8 x 4 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and sponged on the lovely Pool Party Ink gradually building the colour from the middle of the piece of DSP working my way to the edges. I then took some Pool Party cardstock, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and some Whisper White cardstock and used my Note Tag Punch to create my triple layered tag and focal piece on which I stamped my sentiment and sponged the edges with the Pool Party Ink and added some Costal Cabana ribbon from the Best Year Ever embellishment kit and yes this is also “Free” as part of the SAB promotion!!
I then decided to break out my new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die set from the Spring and Summer catalogue, but not to make treat bags but to use some of the dies that accompany the main treat bag die in the set, there are word dies, a star and heart die, some banner dies and some decorative strip dies which I used to create a strip of hearts on Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper which I attached with a strip of Pool Party cardstock. I then used some Pool Party cardstock and some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the Petite Petals punch to create some flower embellishments to which I sponged the edges and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I popped all this onto my card base with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and finally I added a trio of Rhinestones to my decorative strip and a larger Rhinestone to my tag.
The inside was super simple as the Pool Party cardstock is light enough to write on, I just added three of the hearts that were left over from the heart strip die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die, and that is, “some of my favourite things!!”
