Salute to Retiring Favorites: Happy Happenings

Happy Friday!  After a week of getting back into the routine we're looking forward to a busy weekend, baseball (weather depending), Battle of the Books school tournament are tops on the list and we can't wait (I'm sure your family is just as busy as ours this time of year).  It's during the busy times that I'm so thankful for our coordinating product suites which make crafting so fast and easy.  Today's card is another one packed with retiring goodies and showcases the Party Animal Product Suite as well as the Happy Happenings stamp set (both retiring).  This was also another card where I had previously stamped the image but never got around to finishing a project with it so it's helping clean up the studio (bonus!)

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Party Animal Designers Series Paper (retiring) for the cardfront (this pattern isn't super busy so it works well on a larger surface).  Next I added another piece of the DSP that was matted with Emerald Envy cardstock.

The greeting, from the Happy Happenings stamp set was stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits.  I used some Crushed Curry cardstock to create the scalloped circle mat for the greeting using the same framelits and then attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  I wanted to add a little something special to finish the card and the Party Animal Embellishments (retiring) are perfect (they're metal and I love that they have a little loop at the top so I tied a bow using Crushed Curry Baker's Twine (retiring) and then attached the embellishment to the cardfront with a glue dot.

Really, this card maybe took 5 minutes to make but I looks extra special due to the coordinating elements and the person receiving the card will love it!  This product suite is also great since it works equally well for boys or girls so you've got everyone covered and to make things even better, all the the items in this product suite, DSP, embellishments, cardstock, and washi tape are on sale so make sure to order yours soon since they're only available while supplies last!
