SWAA Calypso or Beach Blog Hop
This is the Stampers with Attitude blog hop featuring the new Calypso paper packet and/or a beach theme. If you are coming from Wendy's blog you are in the right spot.
I made an anniversary card for my in-law's featuring the Calypso paper packet.
For this card, I used a 5.5" square card and cut a base in the pink Calypso paper to 5.5" x 5.5" and cut the zip strip in half for the edges. Then I cut the heart found on page 35 of the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge at 7" from White Daisy paper. I hand cut the heart from the card base but am sure this can also be done in the Design Studio. (I just haven't branched out to that yet and time was getting away on me so I went with what I know!) Then I used a small heart I had on hand,topped it with some glitter to give it a bit of shine and added a few Clear Gems. Next, I cut the title from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge found on page 47 at 1.5" real dial size from Cotton Candy paper. Inside, I stamped "Happy Anniversary" and left room to include a personal note.
The products used for this fun card can all be found on my Close To My Heart website.
I'm the end of the line for this hop but if you joined in the middle or want to start over then head on to Catherine's blog to see what she's got to share with us.
