Happy Birthday Kim!

It’s Saturday and I survived my lengthy day at work yesterday/this morning! I’m so tired but off to Manhattan for the day. I can do it……………. oh, sorry… nodded off there for a second! LOL! Today’s post is for my wonderful, amazing, awesome friend Kim Doi. She is a great person and I consider myself very lucky to count her amongst my friends. She had seen a card that I made a while ago and said that she liked it so I filed away in my little brain and made a similar one for her. The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock. I used basic Gray for the 3D window frame too. Before adhering the 3D part to the base I punched out some Daffodil Delight with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and adhered it down the left and right edges of the card. The 3D frame is adhered to the card base with Sticky Strip. On the inside the frame the background is a piece of World Spectacular Designer Series Paper. All of the stamped images are from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set. The elephant is stamped in Basic Gray and his hat in Raspberry Ripple. Both are cut out with Paper Snips and the hat and the elephant are adhered to each other and the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The two winner tickets are stamped in Raspberry Ripple and punched out with the Ticket Builder Duo Punch. A piece of Island Indigo Bakers Twine is strung across the top and the small tickets, stamped in Island Indigo and punched out with the Ticket Builder Duo Punch, are adhered with Multipurpose Glue. The greeting is stamped in Island Indigo and the corners are punched with the 1/2″ Circle Punch for the ticket effect. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to punch around the edge before adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I hope that you like the card as much as Kim did. Thank you for coming by to see me today, I appreciate it. Have a great Saturday! 🙂
