Happiness is...


Howdy folks! I've been playing around with my supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such, and this card sums up a nice happy day surrounded by creativity.

I used quite a few supplies on this card, so I will list them first and then explain how this card is put together.

Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad
You Are Beautiful stamp set (Impression Obsession)
City Girl Edger die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Anastasia Border die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Lady Kate Edger die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Swirls - Silver Rhinestone
Seam Binding - Chalk White
Squeezed Lemonade Distress Stain

I started this card by adhering a leftover piece of paper from the Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad to some white cardstock and then I glued that down on my bermuda blue card base. Next, I cut the three border/edger dies from three different colors of blue cardstock. I arranged them on top of each other, starting at the bottom of my card base.

Next, I needed a little pop of non-blue color, so I pulled out my seam binding, cut off a long section of it, and then pounced some of the Lemonade yellow stain all over the ribbon. I scrunched it up and let it dry completely before I wrapped it around my card and tied it into a crumpled bow.

The sentiment from the You Are Beautiful stamp set was stamped with blue ink onto white cardstock and then matted with a slightly larger piece of the bermuda blue cardstock. I played around with the rhinestone swirls and then decided to cut some of them apart so they would fit onto my card. One tiny swirl was affixed to the top right corner of my sentiment and the larger swirl was affixed below my sentiment.
