I decided to use our Bonanza Buddies bundle of products and DSP as I soooooo love them, and just found out they will be retiring when the new June catalog starts. Note: retiring products are only available while supplies last. Just look how stinkin' cute this is.
I really love that SU! is making Designer Series Paper that you can cut images out with the coordinating dies. That is what I did here - the Koala, Toucan and Lion were all cut out with dies. The lions head was cut separately so I could pop it up on dimensionals. You can see it a little bit better here -
The birthday hat and the balloons Mr Koala is holding were fussy cut and added with dimensionals and glue dots. The Coastal Cabana tag layer was cut out from the dies in this set also; and the ribbon is from the new Ornate Garden Suite pre-release from Stampin' Up!
Finished my card off with a coordinating verse and strip of DSP inside the card; as well as those cute little balloons on the envelope.
I hope this makes you want to get your hands on these products before they go away forever. Now be sure to "hop" on through the rest of the blogs on the list below to see all their great takes on this same sketch. Before moving on, be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this post - they make my day!
