You’ll have to excuse me; I’m on a major long card kick! This long notecard is in the retired color Cool Caribbean and measures 3 1/4″ x 6 1/2″.
I layered a piece of polka dotted DSP from Thoroughly Modern DSP along the front and positioned the card vertically with a top fold. Bermuda Bay goes pretty well with the Cool Caribbean so I stamped the giraffe from Wild About You in BB ink on whisper white, matted with BB textured card stock. The sentiment is stamped in soft suede ink.
At the top of the card, I punched two holes using the large hole punch on my cropadile. Then, I threaded in a piece of Polka Dot Bermuda Bay Grosgrain Ribbon and tied a knot.
This giraffe is one of my favorite stamp images ever. I used them for my sister’s baby shower so I think I’ll always have a soft spot for this little guy.
For this next card, I used the same Cool Caribbean long note and positioned it horizontally, with the fold on the left. The striped paper is also from Thoroughly Modern DSP.
I cut whisper white card stock into 2″ sqaures, stamped with images from Darling Dots (hostess set) that I colored in with my In Color Markers. Those are matted on soft suede 2 1/4″ squares.
In the center square, I stamped the “be happy” stamp once, then stamped it again on scrap paper and punched out the inner circle with my 3/4″ Circle Punch. That circle is adhered to the stamped image with a dimensional to pop it up.
