My daughter has a birthday coming up at the end of the month and I turned to Color Throwdown for a little color inspiration.  To me these colors scream beach fun!  She wanted to have a party at the beach and since we live in Hawaii this is possible ... even in November.  This card combines a few techniques that I have been wanting to try and it took a little longer to make then I had originally planned, but you know how that goes...I started out simple and then added and added and added.  Thank goodness I only had to make ten!! 

This is really a hybrid card, the inside was done with My Digital Studio.  I don't have a lot of alphabet or number stamps, so I love printing out words or number and then punching them out, or as in the inside of this card, I enlarged the number 6 to the size I wanted and then added a circle and just printed it out on cardstock.  It was the perfect background for my vellum paper.  I know you can do this with other software, but with My Digital Studio, I got to use Stampin Up colors to make sure they matched my project perfectly.

The rosette is attached to a belly band that can be slipped off to reveal the party info inside.  I also stamped the outside of the envelope with the same image for a little added touch.

  1. What a great card! I didn't even think to use these colors for a beachy card! I'm really jealous that you can go to the beach any time! Thanks for playing Color Throwdown with us!

  2. This is so cute! What a great fold and I love how you used the colors. Thanks so much for playing with us this week at Color Throwdown!
