This card was a little more challenging, so I didn't want to use it for card nights, but I knew my Club gals would be up to the challenge. So we made this tonight along with the St. Patty's Day mint I posted earlier. They were treated to frosted brownies afterwards thanks to Becky!
This card uses a Basic Grey base layered with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. We used a template and punched out a circle using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. We used the Send Me Soaring stamp set from the Occasions Mini-one of my favorites! We stamped the clouds in Pool Party and used Blender Pens to color them in. We used Basic Grey ink to stamp the sentiment.
Next, we used the Mat Pack template to add the dotted lines with the Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade Markers. We punched a strip of Pool Party and some DSP with the Scallop Border Punch. The Small Heart Punch was used on the Lucky Limeade cardstock at the bottom.
Then we used the 3" Circle Die to cut out a circle with the Big Shot and attached it to the Basic Grey cardstock with a Mini Brad. We then stamped 3 different kites in different colors through the circle window, so you can turn the circle to see different kites-so cute!
Finally, we punched out a couple of Pool Party hearts and put a white brad through the center of each. We put half a dimensional behind them and attached them to the back of the envelope. We wrapped a piece of Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine around the hearts for a cute alternative on the envelope.
We had a great time getting together tonight. I hope you enjoyed the card! Thanks for coming by and make sure to check back tomorrow for a 'sweet' project. Thanks so much!
