The card I have for you today was made to celebrate the achievement of Flynn, the son of my good friend Fiona. Flynn was elected School Captain for his last year at primary school. Way to go, Flynn! As my DH said, probably the only kid at his school who can't wait for the new school year to start!
I have used the 'Celebrations' DSP, which is great for any card or scrap page for kids with its bold colours and designs. Luckily the banner with his name, created with the 'Party This Way' stamp set fitted nicely onto the card. I've threaded the panels together with stranded cotton and created a tassel at each end. The background has been embossed with the 'Square Lattice' embossing folder, new in the Summer Mini and now a favourite as it works well for both feminine and masculine styles.
|Stamps||Party This Way, Perfect Punches, PSX Pixie Antique Alphabet|
|Card stock & Papers||Textured White, Whisper White, Pacific Point, Real Red, Celebrations DSP|
|Ink||Pacific Point, Real Red|
|Accessories||Real Red Brads, Stranded cotton|
|Tools||Wide Oval punch, Modern Label punch, Dimensionals|
Until next time,
Gorgeous card Judy! I've enjoyed looking through your blog (just discovered it via Stampin'Addicts) - you are such a talented artist. I look forward to being a regular visitor. :)

Wow - your fussy-cutting is perfection! Love the banner and tassels, too. Flynn's name fits perfectly, doesn't it? GREAT card!

What a great card Judy, Flynn is sure to love it.Great cutting out of the banners ( or is there a punch I don't know about) I know how fiddly that can be.
