Reverse Confetti Nov. Release: Day 1

Thursday, November 5, 2015

I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining the Reverse Confetti crew, as a 'Fetti Friend, for the months of November and December, and today's the day it all gets started!
Jen has got a fabulous, November release, chalked full of new goodies, including two stamp sets, four Confetti Cuts dies, and a versatile pack of Quick Card Panels.  So, let's just get right to the Sneak Peeks.  Shall we?
Today's card is for my nephew Hunter, who will be turning twelve-years-old next month.  I started it by piecing a couple of color-coordinating, patterned papers onto a White, cardstock, card face; topping them with a polka-dot-embossed sheet of vellum, which was cut just slightly smaller than the printed papers themselves; and anchoring everything with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  I then wrapped the space between the two prints with a length of denim ribbon, which I tied, in a knot, near the left edge.
I used the scrumptious, new, Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts die to create my money pocket by layering two, woodgrain, patterned, paper cuts one on top of the other; white-embossing the partial, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" sentiment, using the new With Love stamp set, just below horizontal center; and stamping the remainder of the "to YOU, FROM me" sentiment, in Jet Black ink, just below that.  A rubon arrow...
turns our attention to the top of the tag which was embellished with a patterned paper, Hang Ups Confetti Cuts die cut, topped with a die-cut, blue circle and star button, laced with a white, string bow.
The tag itself was adhered, with foam tape, just to the right of the knotted ribbon and further embellished with a trio of layered banners, die-cut from vellum; a blue, patterned paper; and White cardstock, using the Double Banner Garland Confetti Cuts die.  The latter was stamped, with the letters of my nephew's name, in Brilliant Blue ink, using the new, Alphabetical, stamp set, to complete the look.
That gets us started.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check in on the Design Team, at the Reverse Confetti Blog, too.  Then, I hope you'll join me again tomorrow, at the same time and place, to see so much more of what Reverse Confetti has in store for your November.  Hugs!
