Happy Hubby Birthday

Hi there!

This week my hubby celebrated his birthday so I needed to make him a special card... I decided to use the Paper Players sketch as well as some Sale-a-Bration goodies for this...

I was so happy to discover that the banner punch from Sale-a-Bration fits perfectly with the Outline Alphabet stamps - woohoo!! Endless possibilities with this combo! The papers are from the Sweet Sorbet dsp set (also from the SAB promotion) as is the sentiment, which I created by selectively inking words from two stamps from the See Ya Later set with a black marker and using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position them. The tag was created using the the Angled Tag Topper punch and I added some Pool Party twine (from the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack).

Here's the sketch I followed...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: See Ya Later, Outline Alphabet
Ink: Stazon, Basic Black, Pool Party & Pistachio Pudding markers
Paper: Sweet Sorbet dsp, Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Pool Party twine, Epic Day washi tape, Neutrals candy dots
Tools: Banner punch, Angled Tag Topper punch

Thanks for stopping by!
