Just because card

This card by Jennifer Holmes makes my Top 15 Super Star Cards – out of the thousands we have to choose from – because quite simply, it makes me happy. 

Why it works:  The bright card stock is sure to pop out of any mailbox.  The three sunglasses stamped from PSA Life’s A Beach are colored up and beachy.   I love the rectangular scalloped die cut paper that frames the row of glasses.   The colors all work together!

What you’ll need:
·         Stamps:  Life’s a Beach Peel & Stick Pack (PSA Essentials), Fillable Frames #5 (Papertrey Ink)
·         Paper: Stamper’s Select White, Lemon Tart and Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink)
·         Ink:  Black Tuxedo Memento (Tsukineko)
·         Tools: Long classic and scalloped rectangle dies (Spellbinders), adhesive rhinestones (KaiserCrafts)
·         Other:  foam dimensionals, twine (The Twinery), markers (Copic)

How to recreate it:
  1. Cut card base from yellow cardstock (6x6).
  2. Cut long rectangle from white cardstock using die.
  3. Cut slightly larger scalloped rectangle from raspberry cardstock using die.
  4. Stamp sunglasses onto white cardstock and stamp sentiment underneath.
  5. Color sunglasses with markers and add rhinestones to corners.
  6. Tie twine around front of card and tie a bow.
  7. Adhere white cardstock and raspberry cardstock together and adhere to front of card with foam dimensionals.
