Polka Dots and Pennants Happy Birthday Card with CTMH Party Pennants and

This card is based on this one by a fellow CTMH consultant, Karla Krose.  You can see it better in person but the present is pop dotted and has Glitz glitter gel on the white areas to make it sparkle.  Both these stamp sets - "Party Pennants" and "Hit the Spot" are on my must-have list for any stamper. They are both so trendy, versatile and fun to work with - and best of all they are both C size so they are just $18.95!

I did cheat a little on the swag at the top - I used a big circle from our "Circle Around" set instead of trying to get a perfect curve on the dotted rope that comes with the Party Pennant set.  When we're doing Stamp Camp I try to make things as easy on my ladies as possible so I used a pre-set circle to get the perfect swag.  Yep, I'm just nice like that (LOL!).

Materials Used:
Other:  Glitz, 1" circle punch, satin ribbon from Michael's, border punch (I think its EK Success)

Fabulous idea on using Circle around for the swag. That's one of those things that when you finally get the idea, you say "doh"! Love your card!

Jen -

It was totally a "doh" moment! I need to use Circle around more often - its a fun set and I've barely inked it up. I'd like to make some 4.5" circle cards using the big circle as the outer rim - maybe I'll play around with that for my Christmas Card Stamp Camp coming up - gotta get creating for that one!
