Hello - it's Susan! Welcome to the final day of our "Celebrate" theme. It's been a fun week! Today I have an easel card to show you - this is my second one and I *lovelovelove* the style!
Basic Grey's Sugar Rush. I've used 4 Sugar Rush papers for a little variety. :) If you're trying to figure them all out, the "Celebrate" banner is printed on the flip side BG's Bottle Cap. The banner edges are tricked out with Stickles Star Dust. I use Star Dust a lot - it's delightfully iridescent and picks up the surrounding colors. You'll see it on the confetti, too!
My solid color layers are made up of Bazzill in yellow and green, and a few others from my stash. I'm a big fan of Bazzill grass cloth texture - even peeking out in layers it adds a little je ne sais quois to each cards. Haha! High school French... oh so many years ago.
For a little added shine and sparkle, I've used Robin's Nest Dew Drops "Water" and BG's Sugar Rush Glazed Brads. The balloons are finished with a glossy dimensional glue. Bixby's little nose and his balloons are popped up with Glue Dots, as are the balloons on the "inside" of the card.
