For my creation today creation I decided to feature some of the wonderful NEW Occassions Catalog items! My card features items from the ‘It’s My Party Suite‘ and personally, I plan on getting the entire suite. For today’s challenge I am featuring the Party Wishes Bundle – which includes the Party Wishes Stamp set and matching Party Punch Pack – a trio of party themed punches that match stamps in the set! The Happy Birthday sentiment from the Party Wishes Stamp Set is the focus of my card in Melon Mambo – I just love how it pops off the card! I also added a mat layer 1/4″ from the Mint Macaron card base of Basic Black to really set the card pieces apart. I also wanted to add a bit more pop so I pulled out the wonderful It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Pad and selected the Melon Mambo diagonal stripes print. The balloon stamp and the string stamp allowed me to create balloons around the sentiment, but it still needed just a bit more. I finally settled on the addition of two items – one a punched balloon I created from the Party Punch Pack and then I added some It’s My Party Enamel Dots! This card was so much fun to design – plus this card was a make-and-take at my recent Open House for the new catalogs that went over my guests wonderfully!
