Calypso Card 3

So here we are back today with another cute card using the Calypso paper packet.  I just love this paper, it just makes me feel happy for some reason.  So here is what you need to do to make this card.

Cut Calypso to 4” x 2 ¾”piece E (flamingo side, inked the edges with a dauber and pixie ink, I find this gives the piece  some depth and more interest)
White card base (4 ¼” x 5 ½”)
Calypso paper (blue with speckles)cut to 4 ¼” x 5 ½” and 2 ½” x 1 ½”
White Daisy cut to 2 ¼” x 1 ¼”
Pixie cut to 2 ¾” x 1 ¾”

Supplies: (in addition to listed below)
Pixie Ink (Z2644)
Dauber (Z726)
So Many Smiles stamp set (C1619)
3-D Foam Tape (Z2060) – I popped up the sentiment to add interest

Basic Supplies (additional supplies for individual projects will be listed with the bag or that card, please note several supplies are used on multiple cards, etc. )

- Calypso Paper  Packet (7210B) (I used 1 sheet of the pineapples on one side and the flamingo’s on the other and did half of the cards featuring each design.  I also used part of a sheet of the Blue B&T with speckles but I could have used blue cardstock there)
-1 sheet of 12 x 12 Canary Cardstock, 1 ½ sheets of Pixie Cardstock, 1 sheet of Pear Cardstock (or you could use the green B&T in the paper packet)
-1 sheet of White Daisy Cardstock
-White Value Pack cards and envelopes (X254)

NOTE:  You could use the Calypso Paper Packet in lieu of any cardstock and make this whole project.  My issue is I hate to cover up a beautiful designed paper with another paper so I tend to use a lot of cardstock as bases.  If you were looking for a cost saver and wanted to use cardstock but didn’t want to purchase large packages of numerous colors you could easily purchase the Whimsy Cardstock  package which has 20 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock that would go great with the B&T papers (it is X5940).
