Happy Celebrations

When I first saw the Celebrations Duo embossing folders in the Occasions mini I liked them but didn’t jump on them (and the matching set) right away.  Once I got them though, I really have had fun with them.

We used them in my craft group last month and this was one of the cards we made with it!

Here’s the details…

  • Night of Navy – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip – 1 7/8 x 3 1/2, layer the three pieces together on angles then run through the ‘HAPPY’ embossing folder, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 3/4, stamp greeting using Night of Navy, cut into banner on both ends and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer – punch out large balloon, add using dimensionals
  • Draw ‘string’ using Chocolate Chip marker.
