Here’s the “Pennant Parade” birthday card I made for hubby – I’m only sharing it a month late! That’s what happens when I can’t upload pics early enough to share on the day 😉
And the inside:
I like the way the framelits work with a square mat:
The sentiment comes from the Pennant Parade set. The set also coordinates with the banner framelits, but I didn’t use those on this card. The Pennant Parade sentiments are really versatile, and work with loads of shapes and sizes of cards, which is always good as you don’t necessarily want to invest in a million sentiment sets – if you’re anything like me you want a few good ones and lots of images to pair them with 🙂
This set is great, as you can (like I did) get the stamps and framelits in a bundle – and save a whopping 15%! Bargain. Who doesn’t like to save money on things that, let’s face it, you’re going to buy both bits of the package anyway? Why not save us all time and hassle and just get the bundle? You know you want to!
The card was easy to make, and I used the coordination of the colour families to keep the tones right. I love that coordination we get with everything Stampin’ Up!. It makes life so much easier.
In personal news, I made 5 scrapbook pages last week, which I am very proud of, and I hope to share them soon. I even got some of my precious “I am Me” Designer Series Papers in there, which is fab. I have been putting off using them as they are too pretty to cover up, but I have a way now… I love it! I did a page about my (2 year old) twins’ “selfies” and used the camera paper to accent it. Perfect. Now to continue this good trend and not let my efforts go by the wayside.
Enjoy the card (can you guess the age?!) and I will be back tomorrow to share the twins’ card for Daddy see if you can spot the common element between the two…
