So far I feel like I’ve had a productive day. Got up and showered, got Ryan up and off to drum line practice, went to the post office, stopped by the bank, picked up dry cleaning, checked my email and the SU website. Now I’m writing my blog post and its still before 10. Maybe that’s a good sign that I’ll get lots done today. I have to get my Stamper’s Club Projects ready. I finally decided on the last project about midnight last night and went to bed. So today I’ll cut everything and have it ready. Tomorrow I’ll be gone all day with Tyler – we are headed to KSU for his orientation and hopefully by the time we leave he’ll be registered for Fall classes, have his ID and parking pass – that would make him officially a college student. They sure do grow up fast!
So enough about that let me show you this super cute little birthday card I made.
It is a little party hat card made from the Petal Cone Big Shot die. You cut your card stock with the Petal Cone die and trim off the two scallops and the little flap on the side. That gives you the triangle shaped hat. I cut a piece of the Celebrations Designer Series paper (it’s on the Last Chance list) to get just one of the triangles – trim off any extra from the petal cone shape. Then I punched the edge of a strip of Real Red card stock with the Scallop Border punch and added it to the base of the hat – trim the sides to match the hat.
To decorate I cut a number ‘5’ (choose whatever number you need) using the Big Shot and the Simple Numbers die. I tied a piece of the White Bakers Twine (in the Summer mini) around it and attached it to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. At the top of the hat I went with a Pacific Point button (from the Sale-A-Bration button set) – also tied with some White Baker’s Twine.
It is a cute little card. Do you want to make one? Then you should come to my Card Maker’s Club on June 29th. Everyone is welcome to come! We had a great time in May. There were 11 different card designs to choose from in May. For June I will be adding more and taking a couple of them away. You can choose to make the cards that you need out of what I have available. Your class fee of $15 includes 6 cards plus envelopes. I hope to see you there!
Have a great day and try to stay cool – we are supposed to be in the high 90s today.
