Let's Party!

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share a card I made for my sister-in-law's birthday. For some odd reason, the last several cards I've made have been huge ones. I ended up having to make my own envelopes and adding additional postage to make sure they were not returned to sender....that's me!

Anyway, today's card  is one with a "party" theme. I created the dress and then added some various drinks to give it the "party" look. It was a fun card to make. I used a die from Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders to create the dress. Vellum was used to create the various colored drinks. The sentiment was computer generated along with the balloon graphic within the sentiment.

Below is a complete list of the products used:

Card Stock/Paper:  GKD ivory, GKD Wisteria Lane paper pack, GKD Garden Tour paper pack, vellum
Embossing Folder:  Creative Expressions Textured Linen
Dies:  Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders, Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges, IO Mixed Drinks
Other:  ribbon, adhesive, dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, make it a great day!
