Calypso Card 4

Still working on cards to fill this cute little tote I made using the Close to My Heart Calypso paper packet.  

So today I am going to show you Card 4 in the set and tell you how I made it...

Calypso cut to 4 ½” x 3 ¾” (flamingo side, I 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”)
Pixie cut to 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Pixie and 1 ¼” x 3 ¼”
White Daisy cut to 1” x 3”
Calypso(blue with speckles)cut to 3 ½” x 4 ¾” 

Supplies: (in addition to listed below)
Pixie Ink(Z2644)
Sincere Expressions stamp set(A1146)
Pixie Twine (Z3035)
3-D Foam Tape (Z2060) – I popped up the sentiment to add interest and allow twine to lay flat

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).
