One More Birthday Fiesta Idea……But This One’s a “Fiesta” Fiesta

June 13, 2016

I absolutely love this Birthday Fiesta stamp set and I’ll be working on more fun cards as the weeks go by.  I had to try Los Tres Amigos though before putting the set in my cupboard.  After all, there are more new (and returning) stamp sets to play with!

LOS TRES AMIGOS

I chose my colors based on those used in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  Those silly llamas kept saying Los Tres Amigos to me so I had to figure a way to get all three of them on one small card front.    I also wanted them to be different colors so two are Crumb Cake card stock, one stamped with Crumb Cake classic ink and the other stamped with Soft Suede; the third amigo was stamped with Vanilla Craft Ink (retired) and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals under the flag banner, the Soft Suede llama and the greeting.  The greeting was die cut using the banner from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  I used my Paper Trimmer to remove about 1/8″ from each long edge of the banner so it would better fit on my card.

STAMPIN' TRIMMER - FIESTAI placed the bottom of the banner almost on the edge of the cutting trough and carefully removed excess card stock.

 

The festive olé sombreros were cut from a piece of the Festive Birthday DSP.  Here’s my first incarnation of the card without the sombreros:

2 Birthday Fiesta cards, no sombreros

Hmmmm. Cute but zero points.  Something was missing.

 

but………….Fiesta x2 cards with sombreros. Much better!
