Happiness is celebrating the little things in life

Well isn't that the truth. As a person who tries to keep a positive attitude, I can really appreciate the sentiment of this card. I'm enjoying the 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 card size too! Here's another one using the Fanfare paper once again (it's such a bright and happy paper set). The stamp set is Paper Lanterns.

You'll need to stamp the big pom poms from this set (I think they are pom poms, maybe fireworks) in cranberry and sunny yellow ink. Stamp three stars in pacifica ink. Cut these all out.

Cut white cardstock 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 and make yourself the card base while you're at it cutting it 9 by 4 1/2 and fold it in half. Cut the blue pattern paper from the kit 4 by 4 and distress the pieces. Glue the blue paper onto the white cardstock square.

Cut out white cardstock 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 and a piece of pacifica cardstock 2 3/4 by 2 3/4, distress them and glue the white on the pacifica cardstock then attach them both to the center of the card. Stamp the strings on the stamp set in pacifica ink so that they start at the top of the card and go down towards the center into the white cardstock.

Stamp the "celebrating" sentiment in pacifica ink on the lower left of the white cardstock square.

Glue the three stars on the paper as shown. Use popdots to attach the pom poms to the end of the strings. Tie knots in two pieces of white ribbon and glue down to "string" images. If you like you can add glitter to the stars. Simple card but it will mean so much to the recipient. If you would like me to teach this card at your next home party, call me and we'll set up a date.
