Celebrate

Hi everyone! Well y’all, we’ve rounded the corner to another Thursday so that means we’re on the down-slide to Friday! Hope your weather is warming up just a little bit and you have something fun planned this weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in today to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I created a cool birthday card featuring a STAMPlorations Wish Big A2 Card Front that was included a Paper Goods sampler tucked into one of my orders a while back, and of course, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. I also used CUTplorations Circles All Over Texture Cover Plate and Skinny Sentiments (some of my all-time favorites) on this card front. I donated this card to the Bearly Arts Cards for Cubs project. :)

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the front sentiment and the narrow strip inside. I cut a standard A2 size card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock. I trimmed the STAMPlorations Wish Big A2 Card Front and ran it through the Big Shot with the CUTplorations Circles All Over Texture Cover Plate to give it a little interest. I layered it on the black cardstock panel and adhered it to the card base. Using the CUTplorations Skinny Sentiments, I die cut the sentiment from the black cardstock and adhered it to the bottom right, completing the card front. No bling or anything else… very unusual for me, lol! ;)

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip trimmed from the Wish Big Card Front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock. I left the inside panel blank with plenty of room to write a custom message, and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more peek… love how this simple card took shape! The secure assembly of all the layers with Tape Runner speaks volumes!

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
