Make a Wish - Banner Die Card!

Here's my swap card from NatCon! I had a blast in Charleston, SC with the other A Muse Studio consultants and learned so much. The new catalog will be released on March 1 so not long to wait now!!

I have had Itty Bitty Birthday for a while now but hadn't used it much. I challenged myself to think outside the box and come up with a way to use those super cute stamps. I also challenged myself to play with different color combos. This card has a cocoa base with a watermelon layer. The center layered piece is wheat on top of fern.

The presents are stamped on the cocoa banner die (love this banner die from a muse!) with wheat ink. The cake is on a 1" watermelon circle stamped in fern ink. The polka dots are from the polka dot pattern stamp set and are stamped in watermelon ink and the party hats are in fern. Oh and the watermelon circle is popped up in a 1-1/2" circle cut out of the wheat layer. Finally some french roast baker's twine is wrapped around the banner piece and popped up on the card to finish it off. Apparently I cut the wheat piece unevenly but hey - we'll call it a jaunty angled focal point. lol!

I hope you enjoyed this card. All supplies are a muse studio and are available in my webstore:

Have a wonderfully creative day!
