Dotted Birthday


One of the first packs of designer series paper I ordered when the new (almost old) Stampin' Up! catalog came out last year was the Gold Soiree Specialty Series Paper. As usual, I loved it so much that I horded it and never used it...until recently. Now I want to use it all the time because the end of the Stampin' Up! catalog is near and this lovely paper will soon retire.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 141Using the sketch at this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge blog, I started with a strip of the dotted Gold Soiree paper and used that to choose my colors. I used a Pistachio Pudding card base and a Calypso Coral mat that I embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I added the strip of DSP and a length of Whisper White 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.

Next I stamped each of the circle elements from the "Amazing Birthday" stamp set--one in Crisp Cantaloupe, one in Calypso Coral, and one in Garden Green. I punched these with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. I punched three circles from Garden Green card stock with the  1-3/8" Circle Punch. I attached the stamped circles to their Garden Green backing and attached all three to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

  2. Such a fun and happy card Kathy! Love how you've used the circle images instead of square here! And Gold Soirée is my fave DSP this year too - hard to believe it's going already! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Craft Crew again this week :-)

  3. Hi Kathy, what a bright and cheerful card you've created! I love the way you've combined the Gold Soiree Design Paper and the Decorative Dots embossing folder. They compliment each other well. Thanks so much for joining us for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge this week.
