I am in love with the new Scalloped Notecards and Envelopes.  I shared one with you a bit earlier.  You can see that one HERE.  But today I have really had some fun with them.  I paired it with a stamp set I was so happy carried over to the new catalog.  It is the Animal Outing set.  The animals are so cute and perfect for so many fun cards.

I think this turned out really cute.  I actually left more room between the giraffe and the tree frog than I had intended.  So I was wondering how I was going to make it work.  I thought of a “thought bubble” like you see in cartoons.  In looking at the punches I have, I spotted the Balloon Bouquet Punch and new it could easily become my talking bubble.  I am happy with how it turned out.  A lesson about being able to make a cute card when you think you have messed up!!

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I added the Glitter Enamel Dots in various shades of green and one Crushed Curry on the talking bubble.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners of the Whisper White layer for a bit different look.

It seemed that the white of the inside of the envelope, which shows at the bottom below the scallop, didn’t look finished.  I went searching for a DSP scrap that had the card colors and found the Mosaic Mood DSP has Crushed Curry.  I added a 1/2″ strip to the inside bottom of the card and along the bottom of the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have another new project to share tomorrow morning.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.
