Oh Happy Day!



It's Friday, the thirteenth no less.

This is a card that was accepted for publication a while back that I haven't had a chance to share until now.

Really simple to do.  I used a few distress ink colors, masking off the strips with post it tape.

The die is Studio Calico.  I cut it first from Ranger glossy cardstock and adhered it offset from some black die cut.



I used a SMASH label maker to create the secondary sentiments and popped them up with some foam tape.

I'm looking forward to the long weekend.  We have a lot planned, including a sleepover at my mom's, making white radish cake for Chinese New Year (which is next Thursday) and a crafty get together.

Hope you have something fun planned too!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - White Daisy Cardstock; PTI - True Black Cardstock; Ranger - Glossy Cardstock
Ink:  Distress Ink - Festive Berries, Spun Sugar, and Mustard Seed
Other:  Studio Calico - Happy by Paper Sushi Die; K & Company - SMASH label maker; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape; Tombow - Mono Adhesive and Multi Mono Adhesive
