This is part of the Stampers with Attitude blog hop featuring either the Penelope paper pack or boxes; and in some cases, creative people have worked both items into a single project. If you are coming from Barbi's blog, you are in the right place.
For this project, I broke out my Penelope paper packet and used the pattern from the Wishes book on page 114 as inspiration. I liked how the title was hanging off the edge of the stamped image.
I started by cutting out the overlay at 2.25" from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge image on page 62 using the Penelope B&T duo paper and mounted that on top of another piece of this same paper but with the green side up. For the birthday layer, I started with a base of Thistle paper cut at 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" then layered it in White Daisy cut at 1 3/8" x 4 3/8" with the third layer of Penelope purple pattern paper cut at 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" and Birthday title cut at 1 3/4" out of White Daisy using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge image from page 70. Oh, and I used a purple gem for the dot of the "i" before I moved on to the rest of the title.
For the balloon part of the title, stamp the balloon from the Artiste Cricut set in Pixie Ink; with Thistle ink, stamp "Happy" from B1419 - Joyful Birthday stamp set. Finish off the balloon string with Pixie twine and you have a nice card all ready to give to someone.
Next up in the blog hop is Aggie, let's see what she has to share with us.
