I was wishing for summer weather and fun sunglasses when I made this!
I cut 3 pairs of glasses with the My Favorite Things die (On A Whim, Razzle Berry, Basic Black) and glued them together (leaving one layer off the lenses). I dotted a bit of Wink of Stella into the tiny cutouts on the cat eye corners for some shimmer.
Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – My Favorite Things, embossing folder Stampin’ Up! (Sizzix).
This is the card I made for Offspring2 recently. I cannot believe 21 years have passed!
When I make birthday cards for the offspring, I really try to incorporate interests from the year that has passed. To squeeze all of that onto this card, I made it 10 1/2 inches tall! Hence the handmade envelope. I looked at a standard business envelope and went from there. (Why, yes, I do have a We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board…but I didn’t want the envelope to have flaps like a regular rectangular card/invitation envelope, so I didn’t use it.)
