Calypso Card 9

Well here it is the final card (maybe) at least from the one sheet wonder diagram I used.  But who knows I may have to experiment with the left over papers from the packet.  I have like 4 full sheets of paper, two full 12 x 12 sheets of Picture my Life Cards (which are great for cards) and a bunch of scrap pieces.  I am pretty sure there are some more projects just screaming to be made with this cute paper packet.  But I digress, here are the instructions for this card.

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

Supplies: (in addition to listed below)
Pixie Ink (Z2644)
Dauber (Z726)
Big Hug stamp set (D1584)
3-D Foam Tape (Z2060)
Pixie Twine  (Z3035)

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)

Just a reminder the instructions for the tote to hold all these cards was posted on my June 1st post.  Here it is...

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).
