|Birthday card featuring the Happy Hour stamp set and my trusty fringe scissors!|
I know someone out there is going to ask me for measurements, but I really don't know. I just kept scoring and folding and trimming till I got something that worked. I do know that each of the little fringe strips is 3/4" wide, but as for the larger parts of the card I have no clue! This was truly a process of trial and error. I did sponge each little strip with Baked Brown Sugar ink (I used Baked Brown Sugar card stock) to give them some texture and dimension.
Along the top of my little tiki hut I added some wee flowers punched with the Itty Bitty punch pack (retired) and added a leaf from the Bird Builder punch to each one, as well as some bitty pearls that I coloured with my Blendabilities. Colours I used were Coast Cabana, Calypso Coral, Strawberry Slush, So Saffron and Garden Green for the leaves. The drinks are stamped in Pool Party and then paperpieced using So Saffron (margarita), Crisp Cantaloupe (peach daiquiri) and Strawberry Slush (strawberry daiquiri)...can you tell I like my frosty beverages? ;)
I hope you'll give this challenge a try. Even if you don't have fringe scissors you can fake it (psst...I know at least two members of the Twisted Design Team who don't own fringees!). It adds such fun texture and dimension to projects...you should give it a go and then post it over at The Twist so we can all admire your fringy goodness!
