One of my older son's friends turned 3 today and this is the card I made for him using the Look Who's Turning set and Happy B-day Simply Scrappin Kit:
My card base is Whisper White scored at the top followed by layers of Certainly Celery and Brocade Blue. I used one of the borders from the Happy B=Day Simply Scrappin' Kit allong the bottom edge of the card. The sentiment from Look Who's Turning was stamped in Brocade Blue on Whisper White and matted on Ruby Red. A Stampin' Up Mini Library Clip attaches my banner to the right side of the card. (I subtly curved the banner for a more 3 dimensional effect.)
I stamped my Octopus from Look Who's Turning in Ruby Red on Whisper White and matted on Ruby Red and Certainly Celery punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. I adhered this over the end of the banner with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card I added three Real Red Buttons from the Playground Designer Buttons Pack. (I "threaded" my buttons with slivers of Crushed Curry Cardstock and adhered them with Mini Glue Dots-a must for getting embellishments to really "stick.")
Thanks for bearing with me the past week, between my Dad's illness and my emergency trip and then coming home and getting a stomach flu, I've been absent from the stampin' room...but I'm back now!
