If I could make a wish during my Birthday Month, I would wish that all mankind could live in peace and harmony. If I could have a 2nd wish I would wish that everyone could experience making just one hand stamped card and sending it to someone. Think if everyone in the US & Canada made a card and mailed it.
- It would bring happiness to an ordinary day for millions of people (both the sender and receiver).
- It would give a sense of accomplishment and success while creating the card.
- It would increase snail mail deliver providing mail people job security.
When I first joined Stampin' Up! I didn't realize how my "new" stamping job would change me and the world around me. Words can not even describe it.
So today while I can't mail you all a card I will share today's creation inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA198). It is a color challenge (Old Olive, Summer Starfruit & Pool Party). As I started to create the card I realized that the Stampin' Up! Soho Subway Designer Series Paper had the perfect piece with a mixture of all those colors. The Soho paper is definitely one of those you have to see to appreciate.
- The cardbase is Old Olive Cards stock 4 1/4 x 11 folded in half.
- I think cut the designer paper 4 x 5 1/4 and placed on the front of the card.
- I stamped the Make a Wish sentiment in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut it out with the Circle Framelit Dies.
- I stamped it again with Early Espresso on Summer Starfruit and punched out the "A" with 1/2" circle punch.
- Cutting a small strip of Summer Star Fruit creating a paper ribbon and laying over the center of the sentiment and adhering the "A" with a Dimensional.
- The strips Old Olive & Pool Party are 1/2" wide and the Pool Party I ran through the Big Shot with the cross stitch from the Needle Point Border Texture Embossing Folders.
- Then I embellished it with a Antique Brad. A very quick and easy card to create for a Birthday Wish
