Perfect Pennants Tall & Skinny Card


I'm feeling so blessed this morning!  I had an awesome time yesterday with those talented crafters who came to my Crafts & Lunch at Dynasty event.  We started it out with amazing Chinese food (feeling so satisfied...) and created three fun and pretty projects.  Now I want to call this a "perfect afternoon"!!!! 



I made three sample cards of this Perfect Pennants Tall & Skinny Card - inspired by this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (Mojo330).   My card measures 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" and fits a regular A2 envelope. 





Each sample is a little bit different with the sentiment and patterned paper designs. I'd say the most difficult part to make this card will be which pattern of paper you want to see because they are all so pretty!!! 


I added some flowers from the Petite Petals Stamp Set and embellished with smaller flowers using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and Basic Rhinestones

Supply List
Stamps - Perfect Pennants, Petite Petals
Paper - So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango, Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla, Retro Fresh DSP
Ink - Baked Brown Sugar
Tools and Accessories - Petite Petals Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Coastal Cabana Ribbon
Big Shot - Starburst Framelits Dies 



Thank you for stopping by today.  I'm excited to tell you that I am planning on having another "Crafts & Lunch at Dynasty" event again so stay tuned for a new announcement.  Have a wonderful day!!!

Petite Petals Hexagon Hive Thinlits Card


I have been having fun playing with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die lately and this is one of the cards I came up with.  I love its clean and simple look.  After die cutting a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I embossed it with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to add more texture to it.
