ight cards with envelopes in an acetate box - with all proceeds being donated to the LMDRF Bushfire Fundraiser. All of the stamps are from You Are Amazing. The main ink is Night of Navy, but you can also use Poppy Parade & Versamark to add more interest.
Every card has a white insert and extra punched pieces or patterned paper have been included so that you can decorate the inside of the card or your envelopes.
Please read through ALL the instructions for each card or you may end up in strife!
Adhere the Cajun Craze mat to the card front, then the designer series paper. Punch out the double ballots in both Silver Foil and Cajun Craze card stock. Tie a length of twine ~10cm around each balloon. Stick the largest balloon down flat onto the card front and the smaller balloon with Dimensionals. Add the sentiment onto the die cut in Night of Navy ink and add the sentiment to the card front over the balloon strings with Dimensionals.
Stamp the sentiment onto the Smoky Slate card stock with Night of Navy ink three times (if you have a Stamparatus this can be done very simply). Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment onto the 2 1/4" Whisper White circle. Adhere the Smoky Slate mat onto the card front, and the white sentiment circle onto the silver foil circle. Fish tail cut the strip of silver foil and cut it into two to make the flagged ends of the rosette. Add the sentiment circle to the card front with Dimensionals.
I stamped the Smoky Slate card layer with the stars from the stamp set with Versamark ink (you could also use a pale grey ink or a darker one that is stamped off first, or alternatively you could leave it unstamped). Adhere the grey card stock onto the card front and add the strip of designer series paper. Stamp the sentiment onto the Whisper White die cut in Night of Navy ink (for added interest you could also stamp it in Poppy Parade and cut out the "for you" and layer that over the navy words). Stick the sentiment onto the card front with Dimensionals. Add either 7 little stars or flowers in Poppy Parade and Night of Navy randomly to the card front, if you chose flowers then I also added rhinestones to the flower centres.
Adhere the Smoky Slate card mat onto the card front, then layer on the designer series paper. Stick on the 2" Poppy Parade circle and the 1 1/2" silver foil circle. Stamp the sentiment onto the Whisper White card strip with Night of Navy ink, fish tail the ends of the sentiment strip and add to the card front with Dimensionals. For added interest I stamped and fussy cut out three of the sentiment letters in Smoky Slate so that the letter colours were alternated.
Stamp the sentiment onto the Poppy Parade die cut with Night of Navy ink. Wrap the twine a few times around the end of the die cut and tie a bow. The acetate box has a 1 1/2" designer series paper strip wrapped around it and the sentiment die cut stuck on top of the join. I added a rhinestone to the top of the "I" to add a little sparkle.
