This card was so much fun to make!!! When I saw the typewriter pieces on p. 7, I grabbed my NEW Zoe paper pack, added some black card stock, and started cutting. (Each piece of the typewriter is cut at 2.5". Leave the real dial size OFF so that the pieces will work together in the correct proportions. They are already sized to work together.) I started with a Black card stock base, then Sorbet, then White Daisy, and finally a piece of Slate B&T.
The banner is another cut from Artistry (p. 34 @ 2.5") and uses one of the three Artistry stamp sets on the collection, Love Right Now. For its Sweet Leaf polka dot mat, I used the back of the Slate B&T from the typewriter and repeated my banner cut @ 3". I inked up the sentiment stamp in Sorbet ("you") and Black for the rest and then stamped onto the pennant. I colored in the two words using Glacier and Sweet Leaf inks with my blending pen.
The glasses are another fun Artistry cut (p. 40)! I set the dial at 0.5", and the border was just over 4.25" long. Perfection for the card front! I used my blending pen and Glacier ink to make the glasses look a little more realistic with a little "glare" on the lenses.
You probably have noticed the cool NEW Coral shimmer trim and Enamel Glitter Duos Green Triangles. So fun!
