Calypso Card 8

Still working away on these cards to fill the tote.  I decided I would throw in a congratulations card (good for wedding, anniversary, graduation, retirement) which is a pretty versatile card.  

Calypso cut to 5” x 3 ¾” (pineapple side edges inked with pear ink using the dauber)
White card base (4 ¼” x 5 ½”)
Canary cut to 4 ¼” x 5 ½” and 1 ½” x 2 5/8”
White Daisy cut to 1” x 2 1/8”
Pear cut to 1 ¼” x 2 3/8”
Canary cut to 1 ½” x 2 5/8”


Supplies: (in addition to listed below)
Pear Ink (Z2197)
Dauber (Z726)
Casual Expressions stamp set (D1525)
3-D Foam Tape (Z2060)

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).
