Over at Create with Connie and Mary this week, they are celebrating their 100th challenge! Congratulations to Connie, Mary and their talented design team! In celebration, their challenge this week is to make a celebratory card with current Designer Series Paper and a banner. I decided to make a birthday card, because we celebrate those all the time and I have a very special little girl turning 5 this week! My daughter already laid claim to this card since she liked it so much:)~!
I've been trying out some new techniques for the Stampin' Club I am hoping starts soon, so I made a square easel card. I used Stampin' UP!'s Circle Circus stamp set to make the stamped image of my card. For designer series paper, I used the current hostess paper, Cheerful Treat. I pulled out the Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White from the designer series paper.
For the Banner, I used the Word Window Punch from Stampin' UP! to punch out the "Happy Birthday" image (which came from SU! Create a Cupcake Stamp Set). To tie it all together I added Whisper White Ribbon and Basic Rhinestones.
Lately, I have been trying to make at least 2 of each card I design (you know so I can keep one and give the other away!). I wanted to change this card up a bit though, so this is what I came up with for the second card using most of the same products.
