details: I am not sure of the "official" name for this card pattern but it's the first step card I learned to make, and I just love using it. Using the Little Dreamer papers, I used the Artistry cartridge to cut this Earth image and another circle at 3" height and I made sure to align the patterned lines of the blue paper with the rainbow stripes. Once I had those layers glued together and positioned where I wanted them (making sure the Earth went off the top of the card by about 1/4"), I had to fussy cut the edges of the central part of the card so the rectangular corners weren't sticking out.
I used Blossom and Thistle inks with the Little Dreamer scrapbooking stamp and thin cuts to create the banner, and then I used the smallest heart from the Basic Hearts thin cuts with the Blossom flower-patterned paper and stamped the "you" in Thistle ink. I stamped the "colorful" sentiment multiple times on white cardstock and fussy cut each letter out (I had planned ahead to use the C and U in white as those letters were basically reversible so once I stamped and cut them I could flip them over to use the unstamped side) and glued them along the bottom of the card. Once the letters were in place I could position the heart and banner and add a little sparkle from the Little Dreamer glitter gems. I plan to use this as a graduation card for a lovely young lady from our church who is graduating high school this week and is very into fashion and modeling, and whose mother scrapbooks with me. I sure hope she likes it!
