After finishing my last card, which was square, I was left with a narrow piece of cardstock that I thought could make an interesting card size. So I folded it in half and used the Paper Craft Crew Sketch #225 to make a new card. I used a new stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue (p. 13) called Birthday Bright. It was not something that was originally on my wish list, but it was one of the sets I received as a gift when I attended the OnStage event in Ottawa. As if often the case with sets I get gifted, I end up using them more than I thought I would have thought. I would say that after making this card, I'm thinking this might be the case with this set as well. Lots of sentiment possibilities with various words that can be paired, and the accompanying images are pretty darn cute.
Here, I used the scallops, border and banner images to create the center panel. I added a strip of patterned paper from the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper pack. And here's the reason why the sketch has been switched sides. I was not being careful when I glued the paper strip down... and realized that I had the popsicles going one way and the banners going the other way. If I had wanted to keep the strip on the right, something would have been upside down. So I carefully lifted up the paper strip and glued it down the correct way, but then the strip had to stay on the left. No biggie - I simple moved the embellishments (washi tape and stamped balloons - to that side as well.
My sentiment goes something like "Celebrate Big Time." I'm fairly sure the word "grande" is meant to be paired with the word "fête," but by seeing the word "Célébrons" included in the set, I kept thinking of the expression "célébrer en grande" and it gave me a great opportunity to make a card that's different and unique. The second word was not included, though, so I pulled out the Brushstrokes Alphabet to make it myself. Since I was already using the Bunch of Banners Framelits for the banner included in the stamp set, it was easy to simple use two other Framelits from the same kit for the rest of the sentiment.
Little In Color enamel shapes were added to the middle banner, and I used the Envelope Punch Board to make a matching envelope in the right size, using the 2016-2108 In Color Envelope Paper.
