CAS-ual Fridays 17



The challenge for the week at CAS-ual Fridays is to use stickers.  Wouldn't you know it, just last Thursday I was cleaning out my room and found nine packs of stickers that I bought when I first started making cards.  Nine packs of anything unused is a ton for me so I told myself that I would put them to use.  I never use stickers, but I was going to force myself to do it.  And then ... the very next day, CAS-ual Fridays challenges us to use stickers!!  YIPPEE!!!  This may be the only card I make using stickers, but at least I used five of them :)


I made this card for some friends who are about to have their first babies -- TWINS!  They are having a girl and a boy so I made sure to incorporate pink and blue.  For the sentiment I masked off the word "bundle" on the Congrats stamp and then added "Blessings" from a different set.  I used my scor-pal to add an embossed frame around the card front and pierced a few holes for more visual interest.






All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   Polka Dot Basics II, First Fruits, Signature Greetings
Paper:   Stampers Select White
Ink:   Summer Sky, Tuxedo Black (memento), Pretty in Pink (SU!)
Other:  baby stickers (Frances Meyer), Scor-pal, paper piercer
