Fab 4

It's almost the end of March - which means the end of Sale-a-Bration is nearly here!  Don't miss your chance to get yummy free product with every $90 you spend!
I recently did a workshop at my lovely customer Sarah's place and she requested a "Tween" card - here are four designs that I made while trying to come up with a project.  I like them all, but they weren't the right fit for the workshop.  I'll dhow you what we did make in the next post.
My children tell me they like these cards - whew! - so I'll be making a couple of multiples for my sample box as they raid it whenever they have a birthday party to go to!
First card:  I love that the Chalkboard Trend is still around!  I think this card is very girly, but you could easily make it less so by swapping the Melon Mambo for a blue, and swapping the doily for a few strips of washi tape or something.  
Stamps:  Balloon Bash Paper:  Melon Mambo A4 cardstock, Tea Lace Doily, Chalkboard Paper, Ink:  Melon Mambo Classic Ink, Rose Chalk Ink.  Other: Big Shot, Banner Framelit Dies, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, SNAIL adhesive.
Here's the how-to

Project Recipe:

  1. Create your background by randomly stamping the confetti image from Balloon Bash in Melon Mambo ink on your Melon Mambo card base.
  2. Stamp the "I Made This" stamp with Rose Chalk Ink twice on the Chalkboard Cardstock - be sure to stamp on the right side. The right side is coated with the chalkboard surface - you'll see what I mean! You will use the banner part of the second image.
  3. Using the Banner frame lit that best fits the image (I think it was the second-largest one, but I am not sure), cut out your image. Using paper snips, cut out the banner of the second image you stamped.
  4. Assemble your card: take a Tea Lace Doily and arrange it behind the banner piece - you may need to trim it a little across the top to fit it behind the banner. Adhere with SNAIL. 
    Adhere the "just for you" banner piece using Dimensionals.
    Admire your beautiful card!
