My son is away at school for his 19th birthday. I have to confess that his Valentine package was very late – I had a post-wedding failure. But I sent this early so he would have it: it’s spring break, and he is on a geology camping trip in New Mexico. I’m pretty confident he won’t see this post for at least a week, if at all. He’s really busy at school, and his mom’s blog isn’t at the top of his to-do list.
This card should have arrived well before he left. Since I was sending it in a package I didn’t have to worry about fitting it into a USPS-approved envelope:
- You Rule stamp set
- Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White card stock
- Sycamore Street DSP (SAB)
- Tangerine Tango FFIP
- Versamark ink pad
- Summer Starfruit Stampin’ Write marker
- Tangerine Tango Embossing powder
- Powder Pal and Heat tool
- Stampin’ Spritzer
- Designer Rosette Bigz XL die
- Rhinestone Jewels
- a mess o’ hot glue and the Silicone craft sheet
I use bamboo skewers to hold my flags – much sturdier than toothpicks, although toothpicks would have been the right length.
I used a dime-sized blob of hot glue on the Silicone craft sheet to hold my rosette together. It cools really quickly and peels off easily. Then I just hot-glued that rosette into place, added the crown and the flags and my 3-D card was ready to rock and roll!
Sure do love that Sycamore Street DSP – and I have a nice little stash set aside. You’re going to see more of this paper, and having your own little stash will come in pretty handy! SAB ends on March 22: what do you need?
