Another take on Wishes: Keep it Level

Here is another card using the Wishes: Keep it Level template. I used the template exactly and love how it turned out. I used the new Animal Cookies Creative Basics and played around with dry embossing/sanding the verticle lines on the Sunflower cardstock. This is for our friends who just had their first baby! Congrats to them!!! It's hard to see, but the word "baby" is stamped in the upper right corner (from the Random Thoughts set). I also used Express Postage to customize the birthday.
  • Stamp Sets: Express Postage, Random Thoughts
  • Creative Basic Animal Cookies
  • Ink Colors: Dutch Blue Cocoa, Sunflower
  • White Grosgrain ribbon, Coluzzle

Happy Father's Day (a day late)!

I am loving the new Wishes Book! Here are the great Father's Day cards I made with two of the new templates. Both cards are made with the Emporium Paper:

This one is Wishes: Folded Focus. It was much easier to make than I thought! I opted to skip the brads and just color in where they would be since this was going in the mail. Side note: We call my Dad H.R.D. (his Royal Dadness), hence the letters:

  • Stamps: Spot-On Background, Say it in Style
  • Ink: Cocoa, Twilight
  • Bold Color-Ready Alphabet, Emporium Level 2 Paper.

This second card is the Wishes: Keep it Level template. It also uses Emporium, but I switched up the placement a little. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post, which is another card I did with the same template!

  • Stamp Sets: Connections, Say it in Style
  • Ink: Cocoa, Twilight, Buttercup
  • Emporium Level 2 paper, Emporium Creative Basics, Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon, Coluzzle

Have a great day everyone!
