I love this card because of the PINK, the gold foil, polka dots, and the perfect greeting for any occasion. You could give this card to someone for their birthday, graduation, wedding, or just a day you get spend time with them or thought of them. Every day is a special day!!! 🙂
I started with a Melon Mambo card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ and Basic Black measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I stamped the greeting from the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set in Melon Mambo on the lower right corner. Then I picked 3 different patterns from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper Pack. I cut the pink stripes into a 2″ wide strip, hearts into a 1-1/2″ wide strip, and the gold dots into a 1″ strip. I picked these 3 sizes because they are the sizes used for the Banner Triple Punch. When I create my banners, I leave them in long strips and place them on my card after making the banner tips to see how long I want them. You can either press your nail in to know where to cut or you can adhere them all down and then trim along the top of the cardstock. I do it both ways. I just find that cutting first and then making the banner tips, I end up with super short strips. This way works best for me. You can try out the different ways and go with the best for you! After I added my banners, I adhered the white layer onto the black and tied some Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine around them. A little tip about bows that I thought I would share……do it upside down. At class, I had a stamper notice that I did mine upside down and I never realized I should share that with you all. Think about tying your shoes, you are on the back side of your bow and it faces out. This goes the same with your project. If you project is right side and you tie a bow, it will probably be upside down. I hope that didn’t super confuse you! 🙂 To fray the ends of the twine, I just ran my nail down the ends and it untwisted and came out like this. Super fun and more frilly! I added this piece to my card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I did this because you all know I love dimensionals but also so that my card lays flat. If I used Snail Adhesive, my card would bump over that thick baker’s twine and not have a solid seal.
I am loving the Pop of Pink Suite! It is so bright and cheery and beautiful. I even created 5 cards using every single stamp in the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set. Now that is what I can versatile. Love it!
