I enjoy crafting- stamping, sewing, embroidery and jewelry making! I am a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I love sharing what I love! I blog about my favorite stamp sets & techniques. I have an online store at http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx
I have an Etsy shop online (link is here). All prices reflect material used and time spent constructing. You may notice that one card may cost more than another- likely because one had more materials put into it than the other.
One thing that I like about the Patio Party designer paper is that its great for cards for men. The colors coordinate great with the darker blues and yellows for a masculine card! I made a card for my Uncle Steve with a Night of Navy base, Starfruit second layer (from Patio Party Designer Paper) Circles side (from Patio Party Designer Paper) a whisper white tag and a Happy Birthday stamp on the tag from Perfectly Penned stamp set.
The whole card took about five minutes to cut the paper and about five to assemble. The Starfruit layer and circle layer are only about 1/4 an inch smaller than one another; for that nice night of navy border. I used snips to cut out the stamped image and a yellow circle from scrap paper from the 3rd layer.
