This is one of the two cards that we made at the Mi Wuk Library on Thursday and it focuses on Sale-a-Bration items. Remember, for every $50 merchandise purchase you make from now until March 31st, you get to choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration (aka SAB) item.
This card uses the Banner Punch, Banner Blast stamp set, Decorative Dot Embossing Folder and the See Ya Later stamp set.
- STAMP SET: Banner Blast, See Ya Later (SAB)
- CARD STOCK: Gumball Green (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"), Summer Starfruit (5-3/8" x 4-1/8"), Whisper White 5-1/4" x 4" and a scrap for the banner piece), Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper
- INK: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit; MARKER: Bermuda Bay (for 'string' that's supporting the banner)
- TOOLS: Big Shot, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Banner Punch, Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals
- Stamp the greeting before running the card stock through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.
- Attach the banner pieces with Dimensionals
- Lay the banner pieces out before securing them to the card front. Start with the outside pieces and work your way to the center.
- Draw tiny snippets of a 'piece of string' between the banner pieces after attaching them.
It's a great quick and easy card. Here are two variations made by gals at the library. I love how they aren't afraid to go off with their own ideas.
Joanne's card above.
Susan's card above.
Have a great day. I'm off to a fund raiser Crab Feed for the high school that my niece, Annika and her brother Xavi, attend. The staff and parents at this school (Encinal High School, Alameda CA) were amazing to Annika's family for the first days and month that she was in the intensive care unit at Children's Hospital in Oakland after her massive brain bleed. (They are still right there when needed.) (If you click on the Encinal link above you'll see that this crab feed is a fund raiser for the Athletic Department. Both kids were/are on the water polo team.) The councelor, Kevin, and parents were a godsend with meals every evening and support for the 15 year old brother who is still in school and was suddenly separated from his sidekick sister. She is still in a coma, at home, having her therapies done daily by a nurse and family members, until she recovers enough to return to the hospital for further therapies. Her high school friends and teachers come to visit her regularly which is h-u-g-e for her recovery. I will unashamedly plug the fund raiser on the left sidebar to help with Annika's medical expenses. Occurances like this are never planned for and every $5 helps.
Have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow with our second library card.
