Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Best Day Ever with Back to Black and Staples…?
Don’t forget about Sale a Bration….!

Oh it’s just so much fun to use flashes of bright colour against a monochrome background.
I’m on a bit of a bright blue kick right now, and Bermuda Bay has popped up again! But this time, a little less – wow in your face – as Tuesday’s project was, and a little more discreetly in the sentiment.
My card was one that I sketched out a month or so back when I was at a playbarn with the boys, and it’s pretty much exactly as I envisioned, right down to the staple holding the Satin Ribbon in place!
I wanted to pop up the Best Day Ever sentiment panel, but leave room for the Candy Dots, so I carefully measured that I’d need a 5 x 4cm (2 x 1.5″) panel to stamp onto, and that meant the black surround needed to be 5.5 x 4.5cm. I always work in Metric when making cards, so to make an Imperial version, I’d go an 1/8th of an inch larger to be 2 1/8 x 1 5/8″ for the black layer.
It’s a simple card to make, rather stylish I think, and all you need to do is swap the sentiment and DSP and you’ve got one for any season!
