Something (more) To Say!

Well yesterday's card was a special birthday card, today's is a celebration!  This one is the same stamp set, 'Something to Say', but with a congratulations feel.  It could be to celebrate a birthday, exam passes or even another special occasion. I have used another new colour from the In Colours for this one, Lost Lagoon and teamed it up with Night of Navy from the Regals collection for the cardstock pieces.  For the stamping I have used the slightly lighter Coastal Cabana.  The Lost Lagoon is definitely a hit and I have doubled up with the gorgeous Satin Stitched ribbon to show it at it's finest.

This card is inspired by a card from another great SU demo, Michelle Last. Michelle's card was a similar style and sentiment, but used just cut card whereas I have flipped the layout round and used the Banners Framelits for my panels.   
The stamping is similar to yesterday using the Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana with the little star from the stamp set.  Can you see I have also layered some punched stars on the card too, made with the matching punch set.  Of course, I have stamped inside too!

I love that we have more satin ribbon back in this year's catalogue.  It is provides a neat finish if you can carefully use a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon.  

My Circles for the 'Now Go Change The World' sentiment on the card were cut using another great collection of dies for the Big Shot, the Circles Collection. That is two great reasons in this post alone to take a closer look at the Big Shot promotion this month.  See how easy it is to cut your different layers and shapes with the use of the cutting tool and the ever expanding collections of dies we offer! The Banner Framelits are currently on offer too, so get them at a discounted price whilst you can.
