Happy Birthday Princess ~ PPA12

Ready for some birthday bling!?! The Pals Paper Arts posted this amazing sketch (PPA12) on their blog and I'm so excited that I get to play along! I love sketches simply because they are the best place to start and help me in the design process for my cards and projects! My Princess Time set and Party Kit were the first things I grabbed because the crown is too cute and needed to be front and center, which works perfectly with the circle focal point of the sketch. I had fun playing with these new Stampin' Up! Products! The Princess Time Stamp set (116720) and the Princess Party Kit (116214) are featured in the SU Idea Book & Catalog on page 75 and 174. These two products work wonderfully for all things girly, especially birthdays and parties!

The Rhinestone brads poked through on the inside of my card, so I simply covered them up with some leftover die-cuts from the Party Kit! Added a scallop edge on the right side too and layered a thin strip of yellow on top! Dressing up the insides of cards is a great way too keep the fun flowing from the card front!

The finishing touch was to dress-up my Whisper White envelope! To do this, cut a piece of paper or cardstock to approximately 6-1/2" long x 3" wide. Adhere with strong adhesive to the flap, then trim away the excess paper! I prefer to use my paper snips since they get such a close, clean cut! This green paper and pink scallop is leftover goodies from the Princess Party Kit!
