Wplus9 June Release Sneak Peek: Day 4

Monday, May 30, 2011

Welcome back for Wplus9 Design's June Release Sneak Peek: Day 4!  The creation that I have, for you all, today was made for my son's little friend's birthday.
I started this card by dry embossing the music note pattern in the Whisper White cardstock; adhering it to the front of the clear, cardstock, card face; machine stitching, with blue-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges; and backing it, on the inside of the card face with a slightly larger piece of Brilliant Blue cardstock.
The gifts were stamped, from left to right, in Brilliant Blue, Garden Green, and Barely Banana inks.  Then, the center package was white embossed with polka dots, and the far right package was stamped, in Brilliant Blue ink, with polka dots, before adding hand-cut ribbons, which were stamped, on Whisper White ink, in the same inks as above, just varying it from package to package, and glittered.  After adhering them, haphazardly, across the vertical center of the card face, with dimensionals...
I wrapped a length of Peapod Twine, just below them, around the card face; laced its ends through a white, felt star and soft yellow button; tied it, in a bow, near the left edge of the card face; and embellished it with a stamped, in Brilliant Blue ink, on a hand-cut, Whisper White, cardstock tag, "HB2you" sentiment.
A couple of pieces of Whisper White cardstock, adhered to the inside back and back of the card face itself, gave me a place to script a little note to the card's recipient and made it mail ready.
Tomorrow's the big day, ya'll!  Pile It On and its coordinating die can be all yours!  Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the sweet and lovely comments you've been leaving me during this release!  You all are the best!  Have a terrific Tuesday!

Oh!  And I nearly forgot!  I've got a few, sweet pics of my baby girl, wearing one of the ice cream clips, from Day 1, that I made for her.

Love that you did this card on acetate, and what a precious hair clip, you might have to make a dozen more.
