Wish Big

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great weekend. We are having issues with our two latest 10-week-old kitten rescues – we lost our baby girl night before last and then last night our baby boy stopped eating/drinking and started wheezing. We’re praying that it’s just a respiratory thing that will go away with an antibiotic. I typically don’t post sad stuff but I am having a really hard time with this. If you are the praying type, we’d appreciate some prayers for our little guy now. Please and thank you. <3 Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in to share another sample I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release called the Jack and Lily Collection which was created after the owners’ grandkids. I used the Hello Lily stamp set and coordinating Hello Lily die set to create this adorable birthday card in a fun file folder style. File folder cards are super easy to create with a WRMK Envelope Punch Board, Fiskars 12″ SureCut Paper Trimmer and a corner rounder.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel and embellishing strip cut from patterned paper which I layered together. I added two strips of washi tape for a little interest and then adhered the patterned paper panel to the card base. I stamped Lily and her clothing and other elements from the Hello Lily stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers (and added Ranger Glossy Accents to her rain boots), and cut them with the coordinating Hello Lily die set. I adhered them to the card front along with a die cut sentiment from CUTplorations Skinny Sentiments. The final touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Aquamarine Ripple Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick-Up Stick.

I cut the inside panel from the patterned paper and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I cut a panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a coordinating patterned paper strip and two strips of washi tape, and adhered it to the card base. The final touch was adding a STAMPlorations Happy Happy Clear Sticker for the sentiment.

And one more look… really loving how this turned out! There’s nothing more fun than these adorable images on a file folder style card!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
