Calypso Card 7

Unfortunately Get Well cards are just as necessary as thank you and birthday cards but since I never know in advance that I am going to need one I really like to always have some on hand.  I think these cute little flamingo's would make anyone feel better, what do you think?

Calypso cut to 5” x 3 ¾” (flamingo side inked with pixie ink using a dauber)
White card base (4 ¼” x 5 ½”)
Pixie cut to 4 ¼” x 5 ½” and 1 5/8” x 2 ¾”
White Daisy cut to 1 3/8” x 2 ½”

Note:  I rounded the corners on the tag and then put it together before punching the hole to make sure things lined up correctly and then put the tag on the card with 3-D foam tape.  You could skip punching the hole and staple the twine on using the Mini Stapler (Z2027) if you would prefer.

Supplies: (in addition to listed below)
Pixie Ink (Z2644)
Dauber (Z726)
Kiss It Better stamp set (B1508)
3-D Foam Tape (Z2060)
Pixie Twine  (Z3035)
Corner rounder (Z1912)
Hole punch (something from my office desk)

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).
