Today is my twin (and my godmothers') aunts' birthday. Happy Birthday Aunt Gladys and Aunt Bernice!!! This card was originally intended for my Aunt Bernice. The problem is that when I went to put these 5.25x5.25" cards into it's envelope, it didn't fit!!!! Bummer!!! So, I now know that I need to add the SU large square envies to my next order.
Anyway, this is my first project using the Palette O'Prints from Stampin' Up! It really is a great deal. You get 48 6x6" double-sided patterned papers for $9.95 if you make a $35 purchase. The hardest part is deciding which of the two sides to use. This Almost Amethyst piece of patterned paper is adorned with paisleys. I am just a paisley fanatic. Anyway, this card was made using the Crayon Resist technique. I usually do crayon resist on glossy white paper. This time I used regular whisper white cardstock. The result is more subtle, but it is still beautiful.
The greeting on this card is from my Papertrey Faux Ribbon stamp set. Yes, I know this is not Stampin' Up!, but I couldn't resist this set!!!! I finished off the card by punching holes using my tool kit and paper piercing mat on the Barely Banana layer. The prima is adhered with a mini glue dot over the greeting, and it is embellished with a small Certainly Celery button.
