Card Sketch #61 - Party Chic

This sketch measures 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 square. This is a quick one to use for that last minute forgotten birthday card.

When I was browsing through the isles of a Ben Franklin Craft Store a couple of weeks ago, I ran into a table of Studio G clear stamps for $1. This table was LOADED down with the recent sets that were just delivered. I had so much fun digging through those stamp sets to find the ones I liked and thought I'd use. I fell in love with this party chic set on sight.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers, used my marvy mega and giga square punches to cut out the image and it's layer. The sentiment is done using smaller square punches and adhered with foam tape on a diagonal. The swiss dots cutttlebug embossing folder worked really well with the red DCWV cardstock. I like how the white core shows through on it. Grosgrain ribbon in red was added to the top and tied in a knot.

Studio G clear stamps
DCWV red and yellow cardstock
