I broke out my new Parisian Breeze Specialty papers. Talk about YUMMY! They're textured cover weight card stock and I'm loving that they're sturdy enough to act as the base layer of a card (even though I didn't do that here.) I started with Kraft card stock as the base and stamped the Polka Dot background with white craft ink. Then I tied a piece of Kraft taffeta ribbon around the Parisian Breeze and layered it onto a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock. I stamped the Fabulous Friend image once onto white and once onto Baja Breeze and then I cut out the Baja Breeze flower and popped it up with a dimensional. I also accented the center of the flower with my white gel pen. The white oval is layered onto a piece of Baja Breeze card stock punched out with the new scallop oval punch. This is one of my favorite color combinations and I can't wait to use more of the Parisian Breeze paper. This concludes the GSGOMCS portion of this post. *wink*
Dawson's classroom has had a student teacher this year. She's been wonderful with the kids and they threw her a party on her last day. Dawson asked if I would make her a card. Here's what I came up with.
I used the retired Primary Colors Simply Scrappin' Kit and the retired stamp set It's Academic. I don't usually think to decorate the inside of the cards I make, but on this one I added some stars to the sentiment and a short piece of DSP to the bottom. Now if I'd only thought to stamp the envelope!
