Do you need a fast and simple card? I have a perfect one for you today. If you have been reading my blog, you know I love the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes. Well, today I used them in a little bit of a different way than the normal card base.
Today, I cut up the Calypso Coral and Pool Party card bases and added them to a base from Calypso Coral cardstock. This way, I will get more cards out of this awesome set.
The sentiment and little bird came from the A Good Day stamp set in the Occasions catalog. Did you see the scalloped circle behind the bird? That is made from the new 1 3/8" Scalloped Circle punch that is on the same page as the stamp set. There is also a 1 1/8" scalloped circle punch available.
To make this project you will need the following products:
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- piece of scrap for the 1 3/8" scallop circle
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- scrap for the sentiment and 1 1/4" circle punch
Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes
- cut the Calypso Coral at 4" x 5 1/4
- cut the Pool Party at 1" x 5 1/4"
I used the Blends markers to color the little bird. These have been so popular that Stampin' Up! hasn't been able to get them in fast enough to keep up with the demand. To help with backorders and to make sure everyone who wants them gets them, they are not going to be available to purchase until the new Annual Catalog in June. If you have used them, you understand why they are so popular. If you haven't, you will have to try them when they are available again. I absolutely love them! I am really hoping that when they are in the new catalog, there will be more colors.
The first thing I did to make this card was adhere the Pool Party strip to the Calypso Coral printed paper. I went up about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom. I then wrapped the 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon around the above pieces and had it lay half way on the Pool Party strip and half on the Calypso Coral and tied it in a knot. Adhere all of that to the Calypso Coral Base.
I stamped the little bird and the sentiment from the A Good Day stamp set, using the Memento ink, and punched them out with the Classic Label Punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. The bird and sentiment are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added one medium Rhinestone at the end of the sentiment for some bling.
The little bird is also stamped on the inside of the card and on the envelope. You never send out a naked envelope (per Shelli, the co founder of Stampin' Up!).
I do want to give credit to Ronda Wade for her design of this card. We made this card along with a couple of other ones when I was at Ronda's Leadership Conference in February.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
