Good morning and welcome to Wednesday! The middle of the week means that the weekend is that much closer. I have off from work today and am going into the city to see Wicked with my friends. I have see it before but it’s such a great play I can’t wait to see it again! For today’s card I was suffering from Holiday Catalog envy so I kind of CASE’d a card from it. Obviously I didn’t have the same products so I used what I have and changed a few things. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The piece of ribbon is from a while ago, Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon, that I think I got from the Clearance Rack. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party Bakers Twine around it twice and tied a bow. The greeting is from the Beautiful Birthday Wood Mount Stamp and is stamped in Pool Party on Very Vanilla. I edged the piece with the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies and also used them to cut out the piece of Pool Party on the bottom. I wrapped another piece of Pool Party Bakers Twine around that and adhered a thin piece of Lucky Limeade Card Stock just below. All of the pieces are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a little bling I adhered a Vintage Faceted Button with a Mini Glue Dot to the Lucky Limeade strip. I love the card and can’t wait to try other variations on it. I hope that you enjoyed it too and thank you, as always, for checking in. Have an awesome day!
