Keeping it Simple: Three Birthday Hats

Oh wow… I made another “simpler” card.  Two weeks in a row.  Oh the shock and the surprise at my consistency.  LOL!  Now if only I could stick with an exercise plan for this long. ;)

For this week’s simpler card I used the Make a Wish stamp set from There She Goes.  I stamped various hat images from the set on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the trim and dusted with Crystal Fine Glitter.  Once dry I cut each of the hats out. 


Next I cut a strip of designer paper and matted on Black cardstock.  I cut a piece of scallop edging using an edger punch and adhered it along the back side of the main panel.  The little sentiment was stamped on a small piece of cardstock and adhered to the card base after stamping the Yum image in Versamark.  Next I accent the main panel with a bit of twine and a couple of buttons and used dimensionals to attach all of the pieces together.  For a final touch I added two tiny rhinestones.


Well… it is a bit more complicated than last week’s card but definitely simpler than my usual style.  Oh, and for those who like fussy and lots of layers… well, let’s just say that my samples for the next TSG release are completed and there is lots of stitching and designer paper.  Hee hee hee. :)


And like last week I made my simple card a few friends.  A couple of them I switched the yellow accents for bright pink.  Nicey nice!
