Gosh where has the time gone...Welcome back to another Saturday with Rhapsody on Papers weekly post. This week I am starting to show off the marathon of birthday card making that has kept me occupied. Each of these are made personal for the person I am celebrating. (i try to do this with all my cards, except for Christmas) Let's start with the lyrics on this one...
~Recollections paper scraps
~Paper Pizazz Confetti paper
~Studio Calico Darling Dear 'Garbo' paper
~Clear plastic pop bottle strips
~Make the Cut
On this card, I wanted something kinda cute. I took the peanut border from Elephant Ride 2013 and reduced the size and cut it out. The elephants are 4.75 inches tall. Next I used the fantastic Dew Drop Facial Expression set 1. I inked up the stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I didn't want the mouth or nose. I got a q-tip and stamp cleaner solution and wiped the ink off of those areas and stamped the eyes. Unfortunately, textured card stock doesn't stamp very nicely. So I got out my Sakura Micron pens and colored the black areas and then with a white gel pen highlighted the eyes to make them pop! The clear plastic strips hold the balloons and a margarita on the inside. Here is the finished card...
