Sending Good Thoughts with Perfect Pennants

Everyone loves a fun surprise, especially me.  Last night my husband brought home some items from the store I asked for, and a few others to boot.  Several basic t-shirts, always need those, and this adorable top with my favorite colors.  Classic me, after my thank you’s were shared, my brain went straight to a card idea.  And that would be this little number.


It also works out that I am trying to build a small arsenal of birthday cards for my mother-in-law.  She is so diligent in her efforts to send cards to all of her family, all the way down to great-grandchildren.  So, she keeps me pretty busy sometimes.

This card was fairly simple by design and pretty easy to put together.  Only one stamp on a piece of very vanilla, punched and layered on some calypso coral which was punched as well.  Love that triple banner punch for fun like this.  The card front is made from very vanilla and layered with a strip of chocolate chip.  I put them together and ran them both through with an embossing folder so the pattern would be continuous.  Love that look.  I chose the boho chic embossing folder because it is nearly the same pattern as the coordinating scarf for my new top.  A reason for everything.  The banner tag was layered on the card front with dimensionals and I called it done.  I didn’t sponge anything or even stamp inside.  Don’t worry, I lived.
