Hello friends! It looks like summer has finally arrived. I am so happy. Last week we were at the lake and the weather was definitely variable. We had storms like I've never seen out there but also had wonderful days of sunshine. It was great to get back out there and just relax. I did miss my granddaughter and my craft room though. That little angel is 6 months old today and I was lucky enough to spend the day with her while her Mom got errands done. I'll share some pictures at the end of this post as this is about card making after all......
Today's card was one that I designed for the Take and Make for the Crafting at the Lake Event. Everyone who attended last time received the Alphabest Bundle in their swag bag. They also received a PDF to make this card at home.
I started with a piece of Parakeet Party cardstock that I stamped all over using Tahitian Tide ink and the Stars stamp that is in the Alphabest Stamp set. I matted this on a piece of Basic White cardstock and added it to a Tahitian Tide card base.
On top of the Parakeet Party cardstock, I added a strip of Tahitian Tide cardstock. I stamped the stars all over this piece as well using the same ink. I used my paper snips to cut a banner cut into each end of the strip. I then attached it to the middle of my card front using dimensionals.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Frame stamp 11 times using Tahitian Tide ink. I then stamped the letters to spell out "hello friend" using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used the corresponding punch from the bundle to punch out the letters. I added the letters to the card front above and below the Tahitian Tide strip using dimensionals.
To finish off my card, I added a bow on the left side of the Tahitian Tide strip using Parakeet Party Metallic Woven ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. This is a fun set that could be used for any occasion.
Stay well and keep creating
