It’s Day 2 and the Birthday Bash continues as we preview Party Monsters, Moka Madelyn, It’s a Party Word A la Carte, Graphic Greetings Birthday, and two super fun new dies Bake Me a Cake and Dial in Style.  I have two samples to share with you today.  I mentioned a couple of days ago that last week we had a staff lunch that was a combo going away party for one pastor and surprise birthday party for another.  I want to share the cards I made for them from me.
First up is the birthday card featuring the new Party Monsters set illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line.  The Love Monsters set has been so popular that we just had to follow up with these little party guys!
This card was for my boss, Pastor Jeff.  He has a little “thing” about ice cream and not sharing from the same bowl with anyone, not even his wife.  It’s something he gets teased about quite often, so this ice cream sentiment just seemed perfect for him. 😉 I used some white Liquid Pearls to give the eye some extra dimension.
My second project is the going away card I made for Pastor Alvin.  A couple of days ago I posted the card I made for the whole staff to sign, but this is the one from just me.
We have this awesome new die set called Dial in Style. I have another project using it later this week.  It’s a retro-style phone and it’s the perfect size for the focal point on a card front, but you can also make little note cards with it, which I’ll show you later.  For this card I die cut the phone from red csrdstock and used the negative cut backed with some text patterned paper.  The sentiment is from a set we’ll be showing off Thursday.  I kept this card simple and graphic with the bold red, black and cream color scheme.  I am seriously in love with this die and am having so much fun playing with it.  Do you love that curly cord, or what?Once I started playing with this, I just couldn’t put it down!
Now let’s go see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up:
