I created this card for my great-granddaughter who turned 5 in late November. I love this lizard with the balloons from the Tag It stamp set. I colored the stamp with markers to get the different colors on the stamp. I the card stock is one of the retired pinks, Regal Rose, and I used Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper.
So, this is a cute card just looking at the card front, but wait until you see the inside!
Yep! It is a Pop ‘n Cuts card using Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts die and the Label Pop ‘n Cuts insert that coordinates with the Deco Label Framelits. Or maybe it is the other way around. The Deco Label Framelits coordinate with this insert. :op Here is a close-up of the label.
I think the Monstermaniacs stamp set is perfect for kids’ cards. Although they are monsters, they are loveable. Hmmm…sort of like kids themselves? The greeting banner was stamped with Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and cut out with a Bitty Banners Framelits. I punched holes in the banner and used Island Indigo Baker’s Twine to hang it between the monster’s hands. I also fussy cut some balloons from the Birthday Basics dsp for the monster to hold.
Finally, I needed a gift bag for the present and created it out of 1 1/2 sheets of the party hats pattern of the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper. The bag measures 6″ wide x 9″ tall x 3″ deep. I love that the bag and card go match. You’d not likely find anything that matches so well at a Hallmark store!
