I've spent a great deal of time this week working on literacy kits. Creating games and activities for each kit is a blast, but I took time off today to work on some cards.
I am going to share the card I am most excited about with you. I started out by adhering Washi tape to some white tag to create a piece of patterned paper. Then I attached the patterned paper to a blank card.
I used some of the stamps from The Stamps of Life's "birthday4cookie" clear stamp set to create the images for the card. I stamped the birthday gift onto scraps of green and pink patterned paper from a Creative Imaginations "Simply Sentiments Brights" 6" x 6" paper pad. I fussy cut the green package and just the bow from the pink package and adhered the bow to the package. Then I stamped "happy birthday" onto a scrap of gold patterned paper and trimmed the paper. I stamped the image of the dog onto 2 scraps of white tag. I fussy cut the lower part of the dog from one stamped image and the dog's head from the other one. I stamped the dog's head onto a pink scrap, fussy cut just the bow, and glued it to the dog's head.
I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment and package to the card. I used Scor-tape to glue the lower part of the dog. Now here's the part I am most excited about. I used an
Action Wobbles spring to attach the dog's head to the card. When you poke at the head it wobbles back and forth and is SO cute!
Now before I show you the card I need to show you a photograph of Jeanne's dog, Riley.
And now...here's the birthday card I made for Jeanne. The instant I saw the dog in the Birthday4Cookie set I KNEW I had to buy that set.
Isn't it adorable! Jeanne's birthday isn't until July 16, but once I got the Action Wobble springs I HAD to make the card today! Wish you could see the spring in action, but at least you get to see the adorable stamps that I used. Be sure to check out The Stamps of Life's web site and watch Stephanie's videos. They are a hoot!
I have some other adorable cards to share, but you'll have to come back tomorrow for a peek at them.
Have a great night!
