Party Animal Bus (new die)

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

We have a brand new release of Birthday dies in the online store. There are 25 new designs and they are currently on sale at 25% off. This release is filled with cute little whimsical animals, birthday cakes, cupcakes and birthday phrases. Everything you need to create some outstanding birthday cards.

Today, I am featuring the Party Animal Bus. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card. 

Step 1:   As I have said so many times before, having a layout in mind at the start of my card is always a big boost for me. It jump starts my creative thought process. I love working with the sketches that are out there in the online world. That way I just choose the colors and designer paper and I am good to go. 

I had this sketch saved on one of my Pinterest boards.  I wanted to use festive designer paper and this sketch was perfect for it. The dimensions are already provided and that's a plus. I changed the dimensions just a bit.

This also fits with the inspiration challenge #710 on Splitcoaststampers. 
Gray Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Pennants Designer Paper Layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Coral Center Panel: 3" x 3 5/8"
Confetti Image Panel: 2 7/8" x 3 1/2"
Step 2: I cut the party animal bus using various cardstocks and used the die packaging for the colors. 
I cut the Birthday phrase in coral cardstock and it's from the Fairytale Birthday die. 
Used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment on coral cardstock in black ink. It helps with stamp placement and also if you have to repeat stamp an image. 
After I stamped I cut it to 1/2" x 4"  and then snipped in the flag ends. 

Step 3:  I am ready to start my card assembly. Attached all the layers with double sided tape. 

The image is adhered with dimensional adhesive. I wanted it lifted off the confetti designer paper. 
To complete my card, I attached the birthday phrase with Ranger multi medium matte. And, that's my card for this week. 
I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use this new super cute birthday die. See you next Saturday!
